Door Dash prep/Soup Kitchen - Location Floater

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army of Summit County

  • 1 person is interested

We are looking for volunteers willing to be trained as floaters "on reserve" that could be called in case we have a gap in our coverage for either our home location (S. Maple St), Patterson Park and the Summit Lake Community Centers. These locations provide hot meals for communities the Salvation Army serves.

The times for serving at each location are slightly different.

Maple Street and Patterson Park serve from 11-12
Summit Lake serves from 11::30-12:30

Volunteers would help set up 30 min before the serving time then tear down the set up after meals are served.

All meals are pre-prepared and sealed and our serving locations socially distant compliant.

Every volunteer works with a partner in groups of two. As of now the meals are served outdoor under cover to help keep compliant.

We are currently filling a schedule for every location Monday-Thursday and eventually include Friday on 7/6. The floaters would assist in the event volunteers are on vacation or call off.

Call offs are made to the Volunteer Coordinator who in turn would schedule the floater (either ahead of schedule or perhaps that day by 9am should a fill in be needed at the last minute). Volunteers as floaters my also be asked to help cover a location while the schedule is being filled.
