Volunteers Are Needed

  • You may come to work distribution hours on Tuesdays from 5:00-9:00 pm at College Place UMC. This is on the corner of Spring Garden and Tate Street. This opportunity involves checking dates, shelving food, folding laundry and other small cleaning tasks.
  • You can take a laundry bag home with you to wash. We provide the detergent. You can pick up the bag during distribution hours.
  • You can help pick up the food around campus. I do this once a week on Tuesdays. It takes about an hour and we walk to the 8 different drop off locations around campus to pick up the food.
  • You can organize a food drive. If you live on campus, you can contact your RA an possibly have a food drive on your hall or in your dorm. If you are in a club on campus, you could ask everyone to bring a canned food item with them to your next event. You could also ask your boss at work if you can set out a collection box for a few weeks. And these are just a few ways to have a food drive.

Monetary Donations

Wesley-Luther at times supplements students receiving food with $20 to $40 dollar gift cards to Food Lion so they can pick up bread, fresh vegetables, fruits, and other small items.  Wesley-Luther also works to provide emergency meals to students who have run out of food in between pantry distributions.  Gifts can be made to this fund through The Wesley Foundation @ UNCG, by including “Students in Need Fund” in the memo line of a donation check.

If you are willing give to support the administrative costs of the pantry, please note this along with your gift.
