How much time does it take to volunteer?

As much or as little as you can give. We have some volunteers who are here every single day, some who only come on our truck days, or on distribution days. Some volunteers have regularly scheduled days of the week and there are those who come in when they have some extra time. We appreciate everyone's contributions.
