Valley Churches United is a unique among nonprofits because we operate with a 90%+ volunteer staff. When Annette Marcum founded VCUM, her vision was to maintain an all-volunteer staff and she was able to do so for many years. The growth of the organization eventually required hiring a small, dedicated staff, but much of the work is still done by volunteers. The food pantry, in fact, is run entirely by volunteers.
Where donations are the life-blood of VCUM, its volunteers are the heart and soul. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities, including positions that require a regular commitment (for example, 3 hours per week), as well as positions requiring a once-a year commitment, such as working on one of our fundraisers or special events, or helping in our boutique.
We also need professionals who can offer their services for free (or at a discounted rate). If you are a professional whose skills might be applicable to our organization and you are interested in helping out, please give us a call!
If you are interested in volunteering, please come into our office or pantry and ask to fill out a form. Our Volunteer Coordinator will then contact you regarding placement.
