Volunteering at IFM is a great way to give of your time and skills. The time you spend as an IMF volunteer is a gift to a disabled individual, a single mom, or a senior in need of food. It is a gift that gives hope to individuals and families whose situation may be dire, who may not know where their next meal will come from.
IFM volunteers are friendly and helpful. They are from all denominations, however, there is no requirement to belong to any church. All volunteers are part of a team effort to serve our community.
