HELPING OTHERS--HELP OTHERS
The Volunteer Resource Coordinator is responsible for helping to schedule volunteers for our various programs (except HersheyPark), maintaining our VolunteerMatch database, our online Volgistics volunteer management database and coordinating with our social media team to recruit new volunteers. The Volunteer Resource Coordinator will also communicate with new volunteers, welcome them to our organization and make certain they have the necessary online safety and administrative training.
- Provide fresh fruits and vegetables to homeless shelters, soup kitchens and food banks in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties, and
- Encourage at-risk children and families to engage in healthy lifestyles including consuming fresh fruits and vegetables and to become educated in sustainable living.
HOW WE ADDRESS IMMEDIATE NEEDS
- We purchase produce from local sources and collect fresh produce from local donor gardeners. We distribute the produce free of charge to soup kitchens, shelters and food banks.
- We also operate an All-Kids Mobile Farmer's Market where school-age children can pick and choose their own produce to take home to supplement weekend feeding programs with an added educational component.
The volunteer job can be shared with more than one person.
