Volunteering at Tri-City Volunteers
Thank you note for the high school data entry volunteers. They finished the big project we had for them this summer. Thanks for your help
Individuals, Students and Groups
Volunteers at Tri-City Volunteers enjoy the same positive but challenging work environment as
paid employees, and there's no better way to help your community.
A large number of our volunteers are students and we invite high school students to drop in (no need to set up a schedule)
and help out from 2:30 pm to 4:15 pm, Monday through Friday during the school year. During vacations, each day, we will be
taking high school students on a first come first serve basis if you have not made arrangements with the volunteer coordinator.
College students are welcome to volunteer throughout the year from 8:00am to 12:00pm or 1:00pm to 4:15; please note that
we are closed from noon to 1 pm for lunch.
Any work that you choose to do with us is extremely valuable, and will be useful in building
your resume as well. For those volunteers who go above and beyond, and truly work hard to make TCV a better place,
we are happy to provide job search references/letters of recommendation.
Of course, volunteers from the community who simply wish to come down and help out are always welcome as well.
We have many wonderful community volunteers to thank for helping us do our good work.
Finally, we are very grateful to various corporate, school and church groups, as well as other organizations, for their assistance
with our operations! Many amazing teams have participated in bagging events with us, donating their time, money, items and resources
so that we can continue to feed the Tri-City Area, and their help is invaluable.
Some companies, such as Fletcher Jones Motorcars, are well-known for their charitable giving. Not only did they help us bag groceries in June, 2011,
but they have decided to provide an ongoing monthly commitment to us, which will be a tremendous boon to our organization!
You can join in their spirit of giving today by giving us a call to arrange an event with your group! We can always use more help -
join us and make a difference in the community now!
We always need volunteers to assist us in our food bank.
Some of this work can be physically demanding, but it is also extremely rewarding, and it is an essential part of our
daily work for the community.
Typically, we sort and bag donated food, assemble lunches for the homeless,
and help cart groceries to our clients' cars.
Volunteers with good keyboarding skills are very valuable to us, as are volunteers with
marketing, promotions, communications and computer skills. Tri-City Volunteers is also currently utilizing
Salesforce as a database system to keep track of clients and volunteers, and anyone with advanced experience
in Salesforce who would be willing to volunteer their time to help us would be very valuable.
Store volunteers help us sort through donated clothing, knick-knacks and books. You may also be asked to help us
arrange merchandise in the store.
Work is sometimes strenuous, but if physical work is too difficult, we
always need help with pricing and other retail activities.

Court Appointed & CalWorks Volunteers
Tri-City Volunteers proudly helps court appointed volunteers achieve their community service hours through alternative sentencing programs.
Court appointed volunteers can register by visiting us in person, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
A small administrative fee is required, which varies depending upon how many hours you are required to volunteer -
$10 for 1-14 hours, $20 for 15-50 hours, and $30 for 51+ hours. This fee is necessary to cover our costs, such as
disposable gloves, volunteer vests and badges, etc. Court appointed shifts commence promptly at 7:30 am, 8:30 am, and 1:00 pm.
Tri-City Volunteers also assists those enrolled in the CalWorks/GA program with getting their required community service hours. If you are a part of this
program, please come on down today and we can sign you up to fulfill your requirement with us, while you do something great for the community and build
your job skills!
OSHA Certification and Forklift Training
