Over the next two months, Granite City Grocery will have a substantial number of volunteer opportunities - these are all fun and great ways to get involved with the organization! As a volunteer you get the joy and satisfaction of knowing you are helping to strengthen and grow this co-operative! And, ultimately, your efforts will bring us closer to having a retail store!
If you are interested in getting involved in any of these opportunities, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking to gather with you and other volunteers sometime in early October to do a volunteer orientation!
Here are some specific volunteer opportunities on our list to whet your appetite!
