Because neighbors help neighbors in times of need
Volunteers are essential to our success and play an important role in everything we do! We have a year-round need for volunteers and designate various tasks for individuals and corporate, church, and school groups. Individuals must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer. Minors ages 14-15 must be accompanied by an adult and all minors must have a signed waiver of release on file in order to volunteer. Below is a list of various projects we could use your help with:
Senior Box Packing – ten volunteers are needed the 3rd Saturday of every month from 8:00am-12:00pm to assemble, pack and wrap over 800 Senior boxes with commodities to assure the elderly have an adequate food supply.
Food For Families Program – volunteers are needed to help distribute food to those in need every Friday from 12:00pm-2:00pm. This interactive program provides the opportunity to directly serve those in need. Ten volunteers are needed every week and are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Food Sorting – categorize shipments, check expiration dates, and discard damaged or unfit products (frequently involves standing for many hours and occasionally involves heavy lifting)
Food Pickups – pick up food donations throughout York County (must be at least 18 years old, and have a private vehicle, proof of car insurance, and a driver’s license)
Clerical Needs – answer phone calls, enter data, and file (must have basic computer knowledge and good clerical and organizational skills)
Cleaning – clean out the fridge, freezer, and warehouse spaces
Special Events Assistance – help with mailings, answer phone calls, assist with communications development, and coordinate with partner agencies
These are just some examples of ways that you can donate your time to help us conquer hunger in York County. No matter what your talents are we can use your help!
