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.
HIP provides weekend food bags to local elementary and middle school students who need them. These food bags, which we call Healthy HIP Packs, are filled with nutritious meals to make sure kids don’t go hungry on the weekend. Come out and join us at our packing parties to help assemble these HIP Packs and help with other volunteer projects! Everyone is welcome, and no training is needed beforehand. This is a great opportunity for families and children. RSVP is helpful but not required.
Packing parties are held every 1st Thursday, 3:15-4:45pm and every 3rd Wednesday, 5- 6:30pm. Contact our volunteer coordinator at VISTA@hungerintervention.org ahead of time to confirm schedule, or give us a call at 206-538-6567.
