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.
We are currently accepting volunteer applications for our Teacher Store at Feed the Children's Pennsylvania Distribution Center located in Bethlehem, PA.
Teachers from Title I school districts have the opportunity to shop for free school supplies four days a month. In the 2017-2018 school year we welcomed over 4,000 teachers who left our facility with 100,000 lbs of books and 116,000 lbs of school supplies and classroom furniture.
We are looking for dedicated and outgoing volunteers to help with check-in, check-out, assisting shoppers during open hours, and restocking the store during the week.
The Teacher Store is open from 2:00 pm-5:00 pm every Wednesdays of the month, August through May. Volunteers are asked to arrive at 1:30 pm. Restocking of the store happens during the week from 9 am-12 pm.
