There have been many changes BHS has had to make due to the spread of COVID-19. We officially moved our families to hotels to maintain safe social distancing. This has brought many changes to the typical volunteer dinner policy. Those changes are listed down below. We really appreciate your support during these crazy times.
Due to the moving families out of both of our communal style shelters of both Bond Hill and Fairmount, we are feeding more families than normal at one location. Currently, there are right around 60 guests staying at a hotel.
We are providing food as much as possible, but the need for food from volunteers like yourself is immense.
Due to social distancing, we are asking that food be separated into 16 different containers (if possible) for the 16 different families staying in each hotel room. This makes it easy for our shelter staff to drop off the items to the families easily. This could be done just using ziplock bags, plastic containers or bags, or by using old Tupperware containers.
Food must be delivered directly to the hotel. To arrange a mealtime and drop off, please email Gage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drinks are also allowed but must be in cans or something that is easily deliverable.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
