Attention volunteers and those wanting to serve in the community! GRACE has a new volunteer opportunity, and we need your help.

Located outside of the GRACE Food Pantry stands a brand new, bigger, and better “Take One Leave One Box”, designed and built by Eagle Scout Max Boucher and his troop. These boxes are for anyone that needs food or has food to donate. No one should have to go hungry in our community, and these boxes will hopefully help those who need it.

GRACE is very excited for this new box and with the help from Calvary Lutheran Church, we now have three additional boxes in the works for additional locations in the area. This is where GRACE has an immediate need for volunteers! We need individuals, a group or a business who can assist us to paint and install the three newest Take One Leave One Box at various GRACE sites and other food desert communities in the area.

Along with finishing up painting and installation, we also are looking for volunteers to adopt these boxes to make sure they stay full of non perishable food items. “Adopt-A-Box” gives volunteer groups or individuals the responsibility to replenish the box with non-perishable foods, daily or weekly for a certain period of time.

These opportunities give volunteers a chance to serve the community by raising awareness of food scarcity in the area while also giving more clients the ability to receive food from GRACE at any time day or night.

If you or anyone you know is interested in this wonderful effort to make a difference in our community, please contact Volunteer Manager, Ryan Jackson, at There’s always a chance for you to serve your community right here in your own backyard!
