Volunteering

Oxford/Orion FISH is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, 100% staffed by VOLUNTEERS who help people in our community. As a volunteer you decide when and how much time you can give.

Office volunteers

Compassionate individuals to return calls and help individuals/families in need 2 days a month, 4 1/2 hours a day.  You will speak with callers to assess their needs to see if they are eligible for FISH assistance and/or give them referrals to other agencies that may help. You will be trained in procedures and minimal computer database updating. You will be responsible for answering phones, scheduling clients for food and client reviews, and filing.

Pantry volunteers

Caring people to assist clients with shopping, explaining how the pantry works (limits on food, checking to see if the Pantry report has the current information about our clients, giving a tour if they are new, etc.), bagging their groceries and possibly stocking shelves when slow (no heavy lifting involved).

Time involved would be every other week for 2 hours per day with another partner and you pick the day that works for you.

Community Service Hours

Community Service hours are always available on the 2nd Saturday of every month (unless it is a holiday) from 10am to noon.  No need to call, just come and be ready for whatever...

Stocking Shelves

Have a couple hours to volunteer? We are always looking for Tuesdays and Thursdays of every month (Unless it is a holiday or LO/OX Schools are closed) from 9am to 11am to stock shelves. Also on the second Saturday from 10am to noon.  Easy, fun, no heavy lifting required and any age can come and do it...

Pantry Sub

After you are trained you would be put on a list for our regular volunteers to call if they are sick, on vacation or just can't do the day they are scheduled. You work when it fits into your schedule
