Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. We rely on the service of our community members to help in the fight against hunger. As the need for our services grows, we are always looking for new volunteers. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents, we have plenty of service opportunities to choose from. Working events, stocking pantries, making deliveries, distributing food…the possibilities are many and the need is high. Give us a call at the office to join the hunger fighting team– we’d love to have you on board.

Volunteer Application

  • If 18 years old or younger (Parent or Guardian must sign final registration)

Have you gone to a show, film, or other event at the Canton Palace Theatre? Then you’ve seen our volunteers! We volunteer as ushers and ticket takers for the Palace, and in return for those services, we receive a donation for each volunteer per hour.

Those interested in ushering, please contact our usher coordinator, Marie Sumser. You can reach her via email at msumser@hotmail.com.

Don’t forget to check out future events at the Canton Palace Theater.
