Ways to help

Clothing Pantry

Our Clothing Pantry has two positions shopping assistant and donation sorter. Shopping Assistants work with clients to choose the items that are right for their family so volunteer duties include interaction with clients and following our guidelines for selections. Clothing sorters help sort the large volumes of incoming donations to be disbursed or stored. The large amount of donations received makes sorting a vital task!

Child Supervision

Our Neighbors Empowered Program provides on-site child supervision in our Children’s Playroom once a week for 2.5 hours during a group workshop. Parents of all children enrolled remain on-site during the workshop, while their children are supervised nearby. The Children’s Playroom is staffed by no less than two volunteers at all times. Volunteers supervising children are required to complete a background check. Experience with children is strongly preferred. Tutors or homework helpers are greatly appreciated.

How you help Volunteers are the most precious resource for Valley Interfaith! Our volunteers are crucial to achieving our mission. Our regularly scheduled volunteers are the backbone of our work. Our daily services are largely provided by our dedicated team of generous volunteers, many of whom are regularly scheduled for one shift per week.
About us In 1965, founder Virginia Weatherbie established Valley Interfaith using limited resources to provide food and clothing to our neighbors. Over the past five decades, with the help of hundreds of volunteers and the support of our community, we have grown from a church basement operation into today’s 501(c)(3) agency. We provide emergency resources, crisis prevention & advocacy, and programs to create sustainable methods to empower our neighbors and break the cycle of poverty.
