Thank for your interest in volunteering at Buist Community Assistance Center. Over 70 people currently come together to share their time, skills, work, and compassion to lovingly serve our neighbors with dignity and respect. This amazing team of people really forms a family to laugh together, work together, care for one another, and make a difference all at the same time. A variety of skill sets are needed. 


Do you enjoy working with people?

Opportunities are available to interact with clients and other volunteers.

Behind the scenes more your thing?

We have plenty of service opportunities and introvert-friendly tasks.


We recieve food in bulk.

Many items like produce, baking products, pasta and cereal need to be broken down into smaller, family-sized packages for our clients. Training provided.


Each week we receive a tremendous amount of clothing!

For those who have a heart to make sure families have the clothing they need, our sorting team is a great place to get plugged-in; sorting, hanging, retail set-up, and client assistance.


Truck and van drivers needed. 

Opportunities are available to pick up product at various community locations. Opportunities for standard license (in our "Mini" truck) or those with truck driver training (26' box truck).


Can you fix things? Do you like to clean?

We always need individuals to keep our facility and vehicles clean and functioning. Areas of service: cleaning floors, trash, sanitizing, maintaining vehicles, facility repairs, etc.


We have developed great relationships with individuals and businesses in the community who provide excess product for our clients.

Who do you know that might have a service or product that can be used at the BCAC? A few ideas: Food, clothing, shoes, personal product, etc.
