Make a Meaningful Impact

Volunteering with Keystone gives you the opportunity to see your community transformed. We love working with our volunteers to give them roles that fit their interests and work with their schedule. Whether it’s helping distribute food at one of our food shelves or interacting with kids in our enrichment programs, you’ll feel fulfilled serving the community at Keystone.

To become a Keystone volunteer, you must fill out an application and interview with the volunteer coordinator. A criminal background check is also conducted. New volunteers receive an orientation and all volunteers are supervised by Keystone professional staff. You may choose to volunteer as an individual or in a group.

Our Most Urgent Volunteer Needs

Many of the volunteers who served in our programs over the summer are going back to school or work this fall so we have a lot of openings for volunteers, most notably in our food shelf programs. Here are most current volunteer needs:

  • Delivery & Sorting Shift at the Food Shelves
    • Get your steps in and help us get our food shelves prepped for service.
    • Volunteer shifts are from 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
  • Morning Food Shelf Assistant
    • Pack bags and assist with food shelf service, in a socially distanced way.
    • Mornings shifts are from 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Afternoon Food Shelf Assistant
    • Pack bags and assist with food shelf service, in a socially distanced way.
    • Afternoon shifts are from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Foodmobile Assistant 
    • Pack produce, dairy, meat and dry goods for Foodmobile participants, in a socially distanced way.
    • Foodmobile distributions are two hours long. Locations and times vary.

This fall we will be adding more volunteer opportunities so check back often for new needs. We can work with you to find a shift and schedule that works for you.

Are you wondering if volunteering is safe during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Keystone has modified our program delivery in all programs to offer services in safe, socially distanced ways. Here are a few examples of things we’re doing differently:

  • A health screening questionnaire poster is shown at our food shelves and any staff, participants, or volunteers who cannot answer yes to all of the questions are asked not to participate in our programs.
  • All staff, volunteers, and participants must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth.
  • Every site has hand sanitizer and hand washing stations readily available.
  • All staff and volunteers must wear gloves when handling food.
  • Each site has a specific number of people allowed in each building during a shift to allow for social distancing when working.
  • Participants are served one at a time, in a socially distanced way. In our Meals on Wheels program, we are delivering meals once per week to limit exposure for everyone.
