Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Thank you for wanting to help in the fight against hunger in our community! We could not do what we do without our volunteers! SHFB distributes 50 million pounds of food to our 700 non-profit agencies thru-out 14 counties in NC and 5 counties in SC. More than 40,000 volunteers will contribute more than 120,000 hours to us this year and there will still be more work to be done!
Volunteers help us sort, inspect and pack food and other items in our warehouse uptown at 500-B Spratt Street, Charlotte NC. All volunteers will be working in the warehouse so please wear comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes.
SHFB is open for volunteers 17+ years of age Tuesday thru Friday 9-12 and 1-4pm. Thursday evening 6-8pm and Saturday 9-12noon or 1-3PM. Ages 13 thru 16 with an adult can volunteer on Thursday evening 6-8pm and Saturday 9-12noon or 1-3PM.
