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.
Currently our truck drivers need assistance with picking up food from grocery stores and unloading them at our pantry. In some cases, help with sorting and storage of these items. Training will be provided. Must have your own transportation to the food pantry location and be able to lift and carry up to 30 lbs. Please be aware this DOES require some lifting and carrying up to 30 lbs. However, we are big advocates of "team lifting" and would never expect solo lifting of heavier boxes.
Current needs include:
Monday mornings - 8:30am - 10:30am
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings: 8:30am - 12:30am
Friday afternoons: 12:30pm - 3:00pm
CedarWood Food Pantry in Mountlake Terrace supplies needed groceries for an average of 75 families in the community. We invite you to come and join our volunteer family and help make a real difference in our community. Any questions, contact Adam Shephard at (206) 883 5132.
