Many Hands Make Light Work
Volunteers are the heart of Prodisee Pantry. Individuals, youth groups, civic organizations, school clubs, church groups and local businesses make up our caring, compassionate team. If you, your family, group or business have a heart for helping and hands for serving, come join the Prodisee Pantry family.
