VOLUNTEER LEAD PROGRAM
For a small $10 donation, you could have your very own FARSB shirt! Ask Robert during your volunteer shift or contact the FARSB Development Coordinator at (951) 359-4757.
All shirt sales go directly towards supporting our mission to alleviate hunger in the Inland Empire!
Our Volunteer Leads play an integral role in fulfilling our mission. Not only do they give instructions to new volunteers in the warehouse, but they go through extensive health and safety training, learn how to lead tours, and they even get first dibs on special volunteer activities, including Kids Markets, Food Distributions, and our Annual Gala!
