Volunteers are an indispensible part of Gainesville Community Ministry. Without them we simply could not operate. Below are some of the opportunities available for volunteering at GCM: 
  • Clothes Closet: Volunteers may choose to assist clients, sort and hang clothing, straighten shelves and racks.
  • Office: Interview and assist clients, help with light office work, answer telephone.
  • Food Pantry: Fill food orders, receive donations, keep shelves in order.
Volunteers may choose to work either mornings or afternoons, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., from Monday to Thursday. 

If you would like to help serve the needy by being a volunteer, or if you would like to arrange a visit before you decide, please call GCM at 372-8162, or email us at
