Due to COVID-19,
we are not accepting any new volunteer applications this summer.
Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization.
Without them we would not exist.
They provide help on a regular basis for those who can
or on an ad hoc basis when possible.
If you have some free time and would like to join one of our extraordinary teams to give back to your community,
don't hesitate to contact our Volunteers coordinator:
Greeter volunteers: They are the first point of contact with donors and clients. A welcoming demeanor and awareness that you represent Tap-in to the community are essential. Volonteers sort donations and distribute them to clients.
Registration volunteers: They register clients new to Tap-in and clients returning for food and other services.
Ride desk volunteers: They match clients in need of transportation to medical appointments with Tap-in volunteer drivers.
Volunteer Drivers: They take clients to medical appointments. This is a flexible volunteer position, Volunteers can state when they are available and where they are willing to drive.
Food Pantry volunteers: They receive, sort and inspect food donations. They ensure that shelves are stocked, assemble food bags and give food and supplies to clients.
Food supply volunteers: They pick up food purchases and /or unload Rhode Island Community Food Bank (RICFB) truck deliveries.
Off-Site Volunteers: Tap-in needs help with many internal and external projects such as public relations, technology assistance, data gathering, grant writing and fundraising.
Student Volunteers: High school and college students are welcome to volunteer at Tap-in during vacation. They are asked to help with various tasks. This is a good introduction to the volunteer world.
Special projects volunteers: From time to time, we need additional volunteers to help with our special programs and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Food Drive.
