Family of Woodstock Hotline Training
February 4th – March 14th, 2017
16 Rock City Rd, Woodstock
Open to all 16 and over

It’s that training opportunity time again!

Family’s hotline volunteer training starts February 4th, and along with the essential listening and crisis intervention training for our phone and walk-in center volunteers we are adding a new texting line service.

Texting has become the new talking and platform to discuss what it most important. Text crisis lines across the country have proven to be both busy and effective. Family recently launched textmeback, and we need our volunteers trained and working NOW.

Please consider the amazing experience of becoming a Family volunteer! Call 845-679-2485 to find out more and schedule an interview, or stop by 16 Rock City Road in Woodstock to fill out an application.

Bring a friend!

Volunteer Orientation for Greene County Food Pantries & Feeding Programs
Feb 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Would you like to help increase access to nutritious foods in your own communities? If so, please join us for one of two Volunteer Orientations: Wednesday, January 25th, 2017, from 2-3:30pm (snow date Wednesday February 1st 10-11:30am) or Wednesday February 22nd, 10-11:30am at the Greene County Emergency Building, 25 Volunteer Drive, Cairo, NY. Family of Woodstock, Inc. is proud to partner with Community Action of Greene County to recruit, train and manage volunteers to build the capacity of food pantries and related hunger relief initiatives throughout Greene County. The Orientation will include presentations by local food pantries, soup kitchens, and Farm to Food Pantry initiatives throughout the county. You’ll learn about the many opportunities to help support and grow local initiatives to address food insecurity and improve the quality of food available to those in need in our community. Volunteer opportunities include: helping to grow, glean and distribute fresh produce donated by local farms; help preparing lunchtime meals at a soup kitchen; food pickups from local grocery stores; stocking/organizing shelves and preparing food packages at your local food pantry; assisting with food drives and more. Information will also be available on volunteer opportunities with the Columbia Greene Domestic Violence Program, which offers both residential and non residential services in both counties.

To register or for more information please email volunteers@fowinc.org or call 518-943-9205 x110.
