Whether sorting donated food items at the food bank, calling isolated seniors to check-in, helping low-income residents prepare their tax returns, joining a committee, or organizing a neighborhood donation drive — volunteers are an essential part of our Norwescap community! If you have a specific skill set that can benefit our participants, or you just want to give a little personal time to make a difference, we will find an opportunity that’s right for you.
Norwescap also welcomes groups from corporations, schools, and faith and civic organizations. Our team is happy to work with you to coordinate an engaging and rewarding group volunteer experience.
Food Bank and Thrift Store
Volunteers are welcome at our Food Bank and Thrift Store in Phillipsburg, New Jersey – helping to sort and re-pack donated food, pack backpacks for our school-based programs, staff the thrift store, and more. Volunteers from local groups, schools, churches, clubs, and businesses come together to conduct food and fund drives and work with us on-site to help end hunger.

Supporting our Seniors and Mid-Low Income Community
Norwescap relies on volunteers to support many of the services we provide to our senior neighbors and mid-low income community. You can volunteer as a Friendly Visitor, or provide check-ins on isolated seniors via telephone; help lead health, wellness, and support workshops for older adults; or become trained to provide free tax preparation services through VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), Medicare counseling, and more.
