The Generosity of Volunteers Makes it Possible for CFA to Help Our Neighbors in Need

Volunteers play a key role in CFA’s mission to end hunger and homelessness in our neighborhoods. Every year hundreds of CFA volunteers donate their time and energy to improving the lives of local individuals and families who are in need. To volunteer, please contact Kathy Mikula: 201.529.2029 x105 |  Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.  In some cases, younger children can volunteer with parental supervision.
