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.
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of your neighbors by ensuring they have food on their tables? Are you detail oriented? Do you prefer a steady work flow in a behind-the-scenes setting? Becoming a Food Market Stock Volunteer may be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!
Food Market Stock Volunteers examine and organize donated food items (i.e. fresh fruit, canned products and bakery) so they are ready to be stocked on our shelves. This is one of the more important opportunities at CEAP, as our food shelf clients depend on CEAP for a great deal of their monthly food supply. It is the Food Sorter's job to make sure the items our clients receive are high quality items, and are suitable for their families.
This is a fun opportunity to interact with other great volunteers as well as CEAP staff, and help those in our community who need it the most. This role does require some lifting, and majority of the shift will be spent standing. Volunteers commit to a weekly, biweekly, or other agreed upon schedule.
Want to bring your work or church group? Great! We have lots of food donations to sort and stock. Call Kate 763-450-3679 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
