Volunteer Opportunities

Your Gift of Time is the Greatest Gift
You Can Give

We have a variety of volunteer positions and opportunities available to fit your interests, talents, and availability.  Whether you would like to volunteer on an ongoing basis or for a special project, we have positions that fit your busy schedule.  

We rely on volunteerism in order to serve the number of people in need that do every year.  We work closely with those who need service hours to complete scouting projects, class requirements, or community service. 

Golden Empire Gleaners is always in need of volunteers.

We are currently recruiting drivers, cooks, receptionists, office help, and special events.
