Please consider giving your time, talents and abilities as you are able. We are blessed with around 150 loyal, hard working volunteers and contributors.  We could not accomplish all the wonderful things we do without our hard working individuals and we would love to welcome YOU into our CCAP family!

 

Most volunteers work one 3 hour shift each week 3 or 4 times each month.

 

Receptionist 

This person welcomes all clients, updates existing client records or creates a new client record, determines the client's immediate needs, and forwards the client to the service(s) requested. The receptionist works at a desk with a desktop computer and printer. Paper documents are often prepared. A naturally pleasant demeanor, good questioning skills, basic computer operation knowledge, and patience are important keys to success for the receptionist. 

 

Pantry

This person receives clients into our pantry, describes what is currently available, and helps clients find and pack their pantry needs. This volunteer also receives incoming deliveries, unpacks boxes of provisions, stocks shelves and freezers, and advance-fills bags of food and goods to be given out. A clear speaking voice, physical stamina and/or upper body strength, and an ability and willingness to work in a small, crowded space are needed for this job. 

 

Clothing 

This person receives clients into our clothing room, asks what is needed, points out what is currently available, and helps clients find and pack their clothing needs. Also, this volunteer accepts incoming clothing deliveries, unpacks and sorts items received, places them on hangers and/or shelves, and generally keeps the clothing room tidy. A clear speaking voice, physical stamina and a willingness to strive to keep an untidy space tidy are helpful for this position. 

 

Interviewer 

This person has the critical job of determining when, how, and the amount of financial assistance to provide to clients. Rental assistance, assistance with heating bills and other utilities, prescription medicine purchases, and other urgent financial needs are requested and met each day. The interviewer must sort through these, keeping both the client and CCAP's limited resources in mind. All assistance is provided via bills and vouchers; no cash is ever handled by a volunteer. Good questioning skills, logical thinking, and sound decision making are critical skills for this job.

Client Door Greeter

This person must be prepared with a smiling face and a helping ear for all of our clients needs at the door.  Due to the pandemic we heavily rely on the Client Door Greeter to relay all information to not only the clients such as hours of operation and service information, but also answer those questions and retrieve the necessary documentation for the services to be met for our finance team.  You will be given answers to the daily questions and troubleshooting scenarios. You have to be a problem solver at times due to the needs of the clients as some may new to CCAP.

Delivery 

This person drives the truck or van to various business establishments and donor organizations in our area to pick up food and other goods bought by or donated to CCAP. Stamina, physical strength and a safe driving record are required for this job. Most deliveries are done during the morning hours. 

 

Transportation

This person drives CCAP clients to important appointments using the organization’s vehicle and gas. Person must be willing to work on an on-call basis. 

 

Receiving 

This person receives donations delivered to CCAP, prepares donation "Thank You" slips, and distributes donated items to CCAP departments for provision to CCAP clients.
