Delivery Volunteers Needed for Backpack Beginnings

Have a flexible Thursday morning schedule? Want to fight food insecurity in Greensboro?  At least 1 volunteer is needed each Thursday to pick up food from the Backpack Beginnings warehouse and deliver them to Cemala Foundation Head Start School for 54 children who are experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers must be able to drive a car and lift up to 35-40 pounds. Sign up at the Missions Café or by contacting Joanie Capps (cappsjoanie@gmail.com).

Senior Wheels Drivers Needed

Are you looking for a way to serve the needs of Greensboro? Consider joining our Senior Wheels team of drivers who transport older adults in our community to their medical appointments on the third Wednesday of each month. You do not need to drive every month and you do not need to be free all day; driving time averages 2-2.5 hours per appointment. You can also serve as a float driver to fill in for emergency and overflow needs. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact Linda Danford (lcdanfor@uncg.edu, 336-373-1120).

Serve at Greensboro Urban Ministry

GUM is in desperate need of volunteer servants at its Food Pantry to help sort food, pack grocery bags, and shuttle grocery orders to its guests in the afternoons from 1pm-5pm. If you have an open afternoon, please consider helping to put donated food and nutrition into the hands of those who need it. There is no set schedule or required time; you may help as much or as little as you are able. To volunteer, please contact Mary O'Neill (oneill@guministry.org, 336-271-5975).

First Food Sunday

The first Sunday of every month is First Food Sunday. Please bring donations of non perishable food items to the new Missions Closets, located on the Church Office hallway and just outside of the Parlor, for delivery to Greensboro Urban Ministry. You can see a list of needed and accepted items here.
