Food Programs

FOOD BAG PACKERS (Mondays)

This team would help our existing food bag team to pack our food bags that are given out on Wednesdays. This allows you to meet the team leads, learn what goes into a food bag and see if helping on Wednesdays would be a good fit for you. 

 

FOOD BOX PACKERS (Various Mondays)

This team meets on various Mondays (communicated ahead of time) to pack our food boxes for food giveaways. This is held in our food pantry here in The Sumner Center. 

FOOD BOX GIVE AWAY DAYS (Fourth Saturday of Each Month)

The team goes out once a month to hand out over 200 food boxes to those in Gallatin in need. We often partner with other organizations on these giveaway days to give a little something extra (Christmas gifts, diapers and wipes, etc.) We would love to have you join us to hand out these boxes. Another need is other organizations wanting to hand out their own items alongside us! We love being able to give these folks a little something extra when possible.  

 

Free Legal Aid 

VOLUNTEER LEGAL PROFESSIONALS (Third Friday of Each Month)

This team meets with people to give them free legal advice on a side array of issues. This is done through Compassionate Counsel and you are able to sign up through us!

Special Needs Ministries 

GIGI'S PLAYHOUSE CLASS VOLUNTEERS (Tuesdays 6-7pm)

Every Tuesday we provide enrichment courses for people with special needs of all ages. Courses range from cooking to exercise to general courses. Volunteers in this area will join in on our classes fun! This position requires a background check through GiGi's Playhouse.

 

GIGI'S PLAYHOUSE TUTOR (Individualized Times)

This volunteer opportunity allows you to work one-on-one with a student needing extra help in either English or math. You will be paired with a participant then you and the family can decide best time and place for tutoring to take place. This position requires a background check through GiGi's Playhouse. 

 

SPECIAL NEEDS SPORTS FOUNDATION BINGO (Thursdays 6-8pm)

Every Thursday we host adults with special needs for bingo! This is such a fun and rewarding activity. You get to come and just hang out, eat snacks and win some prizes! We would also like to see this grow. Bring your loved ones to enjoy some fun while you get to socialize with other parents and caregivers. 

Free Dental Days

DENTAL PROFESSIONALS

We get the privilege of serving a huge need in our community, dental care. To make this possible we need dentists who are willing to help us with extractions, cleanings and eventually restorative care as well. 

 

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS

Before we provide dental services to people, we do a short medical screening with them. We need medical professionals to help us with this step of our process. 

 

GENERAL VOLUNTEERS

We have plenty of check-in points, escorts and prayer warriors needed for days like our Free Dental Days. As important as dentists are, these days wouldn't be possible without our large number of general volunteers!
