Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays at Common Ground!! Each week we delivery food boxes to CG families who have expressed food insecurity.

We are in need of some volunteers to make a weekly Tuesday delivery of meals to our Veterans.

Food is transported in bags/boxes packed by Columbus House kitchen staff. Typically 18-20 medium size bags/boxes total are needed for single transport. Less if the run is split between 2 people. We are seeking 4-8 volunteers to work on a rotating schedule, ensuring that every Tuesday is covered. This is possibly a 4 month long volunteer opportunity.
