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.
CitySquare Food Pantry is open Tuesday-Friday 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. There are also opportunities to volunteer with us on Saturdays. Please visit our website www.citysquare.org/volunteers for specific dates and times.
Our Food Pantry sees about 200-250 neighbors and families every day. Volunteers help neighbors shop, stock shelves, sort and pack food. Neighbors can visit the CitySquare Food Pantry every two weeks and choose the items they want, eliminating the food waste that occurs with pre-made grocery packs. The Food Pantry also serves an entry point for CitySquare’s 17 other programs ranging from job training to legal aid. To learn more about our organization, visit www.citysquare.org.
