About

This event is hosted by Project Helping in conjunction with Metro Caring.

Metro Caring is Denver’s leading hunger-relief program, distributing approximately 2 million pounds of nutritious food to hungry families and individuals while also providing education and tools to help them improve their health and self-sufficiency.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

For this volunteer opportunity, we will be assisting in the warehouse. The warehouse area is where food and other items are processed from donation deliveries. We will help inspect, clean, sort and box these items. Once sorted, the food and other items go to the market where participants shop for groceries. Your work is essential to helping MetroCaring serve its participants.

Project Helping leads a volunteer group at MertoCaring once a month.
