Volunteer Opportunities

We Need You

Since 1981, GoodSamFC has provided short-term assistance with food, utilities, and housing. We need you and we need your organization to join us in our mission.

Community Thanksgiving Open Table

We don't always raise money. the Community Thanksgiving Open Table is about making sure everyone in Fannin County has Thanksgiving food and fellowship.  We need help setting up and serving soup at Light Up Blue Ridge.

5th Sunday Community Brunch Open Table

March 31st, June 30th,  September 29th, and December 29th 2019. 8am - 1:30pm. Fannin County Senior Center. Best brunch in the mountains. No charge -- donations are welcome. 

PIC-NIC-NAC in the Park

Saturday, August 31st. 9am to 3pm. Blue Ridge City Park. You can help us set up tents and you can help by coming by to browse the selection of arts, crafts, and nic-nacs.  Exhibitor space available.

Community Worship & DQ Ice Cream Social

Sunday, September 1st. 6 - 7:30pm. Blue Ridge City Park. We need some help with setup, but mostly we need you to come and share an evening and some ice cream with new and old friends. 

Labor Day Bar-B-Q

The Labor Day Bar-B-Q is our most important fundraiser. It takes about a million volunteers, over three days to pull it off. We need people to help solicit donations, to put up signs and tents, to prepare and serve the food, and much much more. We also need your truck. 

Rules for Volunteers to Live By


Volunteers Wash Their Hands

At GoodSamFC, volunteers wash their hands before starting, before and after the bathroom, and after touching meat and stuff. We don't eat while serving guests. We'll provide the hairnets. 

Volunteers Sign Up and Sign In

Volunteer Staffing Sheets are at your church. Sign up there, if possible. 

When you arrive, sign in at the Volunteer Booth to get your assignment, apron, gloves, and name tag.

Volunteers Look Happy

Have fun. Smile.  Serve cheerfully. 

Volunteers Support the Mission

Volunteers purchase tickets for themselves and their friends and families.   They spread the word that pre-sale tickets are available at participating churches, the Chamber of Commerce, Bank of Ozarks, BB&T, United Community Bank, and American Wholesale Print Shop.

Volunteers Don't Take the Prime Parking

Parking is limited. Volunteers carpool park away from downtown.
