The Food Distribution program at East Palo Alto Senior Center needs a smartphone-using Check In Volunteer to assist with volunteer management. Second Harvest's food distributions are entirely volunteer run. We have recently transitioned to a new online, electronic volunteer registration system, we need a regular Check In Volunteer who is responsible for registering and checking in volunteers.

The Check In volunteer must have a cheerful, welcoming demeanor and a willingness to welcome new volunteers. Additionally, the check in volunteer must be willing to use their smartphone to check in volunteers using Second Harvest Food Bank’s online volunteer registration system. The process only requires access to a small amount of cellular data service.

The volunteer must be willing and able to work with people of different backgrounds and nationalities, exhibit compassion and sensitivity, maintain strict confidentiality of all member and volunteer information.
