Summary Mission and Job Descriptions for CCAP Volunteers

Front Royal-Warren County Congregational Community Project (C-CAP) GENERAL INFORMATION

Front Royal/Warren County C-CAP is a non-profit, tax-exempt (IRS 501(3)(c)) charitable service corporation that has been providing emergency food, clothing, and/or limited financial assistance to needy Front Royal/Warren County residents since 1978. It was created after a community wide, grass-roots effort that recognized the need for a “Safety Net” to aid needy local families who were not eligible for aid from other community sources or where additional aid was needed due to, individual family circumstances.

C-CAP was incorporated in the State of Virginia in November 1981 as “Front Royal-Warren County C-CAP” (Corporate ID # 0223999-4) and the Determination of Tax- Exemption was issued by the IRS in June 1984 (Employer Identification Number 52-1291708). C-CAP is listed in the Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS # 18-588-7148).

C-CAP has no salaried staff and is operated entirely by about 40   volunteers, who volunteer one half day or more each month, plus several others who help in pick-up and distribution of food and fund-raising activities. Almost all our resources, food, clothing, and finances, are donated by local churches, civic groups, or organizations, individuals, or businesses. We actively seek Grants and donations from non-government sources.

Office Hours

The C-CAP office is normally open from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon on weekdays except when public schools are closed or on a two-hour delay due to bad weather. Howe er, the Covid Pandemic caused us to reduce office hours to Mondays and Wednesdays only from nine to noon. Current plans are to get back to normal hours as soon as the safety protocols allow for regular operational hours.  During the summer, we are open weekdays, except holidays. The office is usually staffed by three volunteers: Interviewer, Clothing Volunteer, and Food Distributor. The office is in the basement at the rear of the St. Luke Community Clinic, 316 North Royal Avenue, Front Royal (540-636- 2448).


Even before the pandemic C-CAP has been short of volunteers; particularly food distribution staff. Below is a summary of the available volunteer jobs, including board appointments. We hope you will review and consider a volunteer job that works with your schedule and interest.  Contact us at ourccap@gmail.com and review our facebook and website pages athttps://ourccap.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/CCAPFrontRoyal.
