Help Serve Lunch or Dinner to Those Less Fortunate - MANHATTAN

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Bowery Residents' Committee, Inc.

BRC

In order to keep up with our other food-service obligations to those we serve, we occasionally seek assistance with light meal preparation and service, followed by post-lunch/dinner breakdown and clean-up.

Please note, due to the current pandemic, all in-person volunteers will be asked for the following:

    • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to your assignment
    • Proof of your booster if you have met the time frame that would allow you to receive one:
      • If you received the single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine you are eligible for the booster after 2 months
      • If you received the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, you are eligible for the booster 5 months after receiving your second dose
      • If you received the two-dose Moderna vaccine, you are eligible for the booster 5 months after receiving your second dose
    • Temperature check upon arrival for your shift
    • Masks must be worn at all times when onsite
    • Regular, ongoing hand-washing during your shift
    • Social distancing guidelines must be followed

This will take place at our 25th street kitchen, between 6th and 7th Avenues. Due to space and social distancing requirements, spots are limited. Available shifts are seven days per week as follows:

  • 11:45am to 1:45pm
  • 4:45pm to 6:30pm
If you are interested in lending a hand with this effort, please reach out for more details.

Please note: Any/all potential volunteers must complete a New Volunteer Registration form, which can be found at the following link: http://www.brc.org/volunteer-registration . Once received, you will then be sent an invitation to participate in an orientation via Zoom.

Mission Statement

Helping people reclaim lives lost: We restore hope and dignity by offering opportunities for health and self-sufficiency.

Description

BRC: Helping People to Reclaim Lives Lost. BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to thousands of New York City's individuals in need. Offering a hand-up, not a handout, BRC asks one simple question: What can we do for you? BRC sees the potential in each individual it serves and provides each the opportunity to find it. Whatever our clients may seek, BRC has it, 24/7/365: outreach to homeless people living in public spaces, drug treatment, mental health care, comprehensive medical services, vocational services, and supportive communities in which to live. BRC succeeds by building trust with the people we serve; listening, and then acting, providing housing - both temporary and permanent. Building trust takes time, and a compassionate, dedicated staff of almost 1,000 employees and 1,000+ volunteers that persevere 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, never giving up.
