The Raleigh warehouse does accept volunteer help with various tasks and can verify community service hours. Warehouse volunteers help support meal packaging operations by helping stage for events, restocking supplies, stacking aid pallets for shipment, sanitizing and organizing equipment, sorting merchandise and general cleaning. Labeling bags is a helpful task also, requiring limited physical exertion.
