Help in other ways



As the NDCFP grows, we will need more help. Maybe you already donate food through NDCFP, but you'd like to do more to help. Take a look at this list and see if there's something you'd enjoy doing. Then contact us at We'll get right back to you. 

  1. Tabling. A great way to meet new people. Help us set up a table at one of North Douglas County community events. Then have fun chatting with passersby, thanking current NDCFP members and signing up new ones. (It really works! In fact, it's our most effective way of getting new members.) We'll supply all the materials and teach you how to do it. We usually work in 2-hour shifts.
  2. Helping at the food pantry. On pickup and allocation days, dozens of volunteers pitch in at the food pantry, accepting, sorting and stocking the food delivered by the NDCFP. It's an exciting, celebratory atmosphere. 
  3. Canvassing. Every once in a while, we organize a group-canvassing effort in a particular area of town, to expand our Food Donor base. Don't worry if you've never knocked on doors before; we'll team you with an experienced canvasser …so you'll have fun with a partner while you learn. It's an important way to keep the NDCFP growing!
  4. Special Events. Got a few hours to spare? We can always use help with events …from the 4th of July parade to a potluck dinner. There are plenty of different jobs available for every event. And if you like planning events …well, have we got a job for YOU!
  5. Emergency Pick Ups. Every once in a while a Neighborhood Coordinator gets ill, is out of town, or just plain needs assistance on Pickup Day. So we need a list of people we can call on to pick up food in a pinch. (You need to have a vehicle for this.)
  6. Sharing Skills. Got a special skill or interest you'd like to share? We can probably use it! Writing, editing, web site or data management, bookkeeping, photography, fundraising …you name it. Just let us know what you can (or would like to). We'll find a place for it!
