Due to COVID-19 hardships, many children, families, and seniors urgently need our help. Volunteers are urgently needed to assist with packing food boxes during the next few weeks to provide nourishment and hope to those in great need across Middle and West Tennessee. Specific tasks include packing food on an assembly line, opening boxes of food to replenish the assembly line stock, stacking pallets, and labeling/taping boxes.


This volunteer project takes place in a warehouse environment. Please dress appropriately for the environment and activities.

  • Closed-toe shoes are required for all volunteers’ safety. No exceptions.
  • Masks are welcome, but not required.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. You’ll be standing/walking much of the shift.
