FISH is a nearly all-volunteer organization with only 16 staff members and about 130 active volunteers. Without volunteers, the cost of staffing FISH and Open Table’s many and diverse programs would be prohibitive. Volunteers enable us to deliver vital programs and services, lend expertise on the board of directors, help with special events, and keep the doors open every day. Every month, FISH and Open Table’s volunteers work nearly 600 hours, equivalent to 3.5 full-time staff members for an entire year.
We invite anyone who is 16 years of age or older to volunteer. FISH’s Volunteer Coordinator often works with groups who are younger and need service hours for school. For more information about the many opportunities for volunteering at FISH and Open Table, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 509-925-5990 extension 802.
