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.
On the 3rd Saturday of every month, the Crisis Room at Aldersgate receives a delivery of between 2-5 tons of food from the Community FoodBank. Volunteers are needed to move cases of food from the pallets to the shelves.
Volunteers need to be able to lift 30-50 lb.
The second event for that day is to prepare the food bags for the state food distribution that occurs the same week. The group prepare approximately 100 bags.
NOTE: To participate in this project you must be a Jersey Cares volunteer.
