Summer Volunteer Opportunities

Community Human Services is looking for Spring/Summer volunteers to assist at the Food Pantry in South Oakland.  The Pantry serves about 150 families per week, providing them with fresh produce and other essential items.  Volunteers will assist during preparation and distribution.  This involves sorting food, stocking shelves, preparing the outdoor market, and assisting families.  From time to time, volunteers who are capable may be asked to lift up to 50lbs, but this is not required.  Customer service skills are important as volunteers may be assisting families directly.  An understanding of different socieconomic and cultural backgrounds is helpful.

The Pantry is located at 370 Lawn St, Pittsburgh PA, 15235.  Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays & Thursdays between 1:30 PM and 6:00 PM.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Colin McWhertor ([email protected]) or by phone at (412)246-1639.


CHS expects that all volunteers be fully vaccinated from COVID-19.
