Volunteers Desk_edited_edited.jpg


Help to sort, bag and distribute food on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM or Thursdays, 7:00 to 8:00 PM.


Outside of these shifts, we look for ad hoc assistance to:

  • Sort recently donated items, like clothing and small household goods

  • Maintain and clean our facility

  • Provide translation assistance for clients (Cambodian, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese)

  • Update record and book-keeping 

School Backpack

Collect Items to Donate

One very simple way to help would be to hold a drive for the items our clients request most:

  • Canned goods and nonperishable food 

  • Winter coats, hats, gloves, mittens, and blankets

  • Back to school supplies

  • Personal care and hygiene items

  • Baby diapers and wipes

  • Gift cards to area supermarkets


Your company, group, school, or church can schedule a time for a representative from CFM to make a presentation to discuss becoming a partner in the mission work in Lowell. Use this as an opportunity to encourage volunteerism and serve to those in need.
