Volunteer


Are you a UNF Student (enrolled in at least one class) that is interested in volunteering at the Pantry? 

 

Thank you for expressing a sincere interest in all we try to do for the students here at Lend-A-Wing. To volunteer at the Pantry or with our Lend-A-Green Coordinator, there are a few steps that our volunteers must take before they can come in to help out. A purple student conduct reporting form must first be picked up from 58E/3104. Please make sure you note that you are seeking to volunteer at Lend-A-Wing on the form. Once completed, that form must then be taken just down the hall in room 3401. After this has been completed, please email your contact information to lendawing@unf.edu. We will then get in contact with you to arrange a time once the paperwork has cleared. We ask that you please be patient with us during this process.
