Pantry Visits

The MLK Community Center's cadre of volunteers support almost every program and service that we provide.  Without volunteers, we simply could not do what we do.  Volunteers served those 10,000 breakfasts, bagged and delivered groceries to our homebound neighbors, filled 7868 holiday food baskets, stocked our pantry, helped us maintain our building and yard, and volunteered at numerous special events throughout the year.

 

If you, your place of worship, your business, school, or social club would like to volunteer, please contact Nancy Harten, Director of Hunger Services and Volunteers, at 401-846-4828 x103 or nharten@MLKCCenter.org
