The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Good Shepherd Food-Bank is Maine's largest hunger relief organization and Food Sorters assist us with our staple program, the procurement and distribution of millions of pounds of food annually. To accomplish this task volunteers are needed to sort through donated product that comes to our warehouse in Auburn. This is a key role in our operations that allows us to accurately inventory and track donations.
Volunteers work in a team at a conveyor belt to receive food, inspect it for food safety and sort it into over 20 different categories.
