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.
Get involved today in your community through volunteering.
A food bank is in need of someone to like researching for good deals. The good deal is for staples the food bank needs to carry out their mission of providing nutritious food to their clients.
You would be responsible for ordering and picking up the items. Working with Food Lifeline you would be familiar with what commodities are available and what the food bank has on hand. Communicating with designated food bank volunteers you would evaluate what is needed to be purchased.
You research opportunities for 'free' fresh produce (fruit/vegetables) that offers nutrition and holds down food bank expenditures.
Due to the financial nature of the food bank 'business model' when you pick up purchased food you would use your own credit card but be quickly reimbursed by the food bank treasurer.
You are in touch with the driver coordinator to establish a driver team for each store or location.
