At North Helpline we assist neighbors with more than nutrition. Our Client Services team invites neighbors to access personal and household items including haircare, dental care and laundry & dish soap to further alleviate financial pressures.
The Client Services volunteer positions prepare the personal and household items for distribution. This typically involves parcelling out laundry & dish soaps, creating hygiene packs for neighbors experiencing homelessness, repackaging diapers, menstruation products and stocking hygiene items and is based out of our Lake City site. Volunteers interested in Client Services are invited to join us for distribution first to have an understanding of the needs of this position.
Because this position will work inside the Client Services office, volunteers often work independently, with another member of their own household or a Staff member. We keep volunteer crews small to help with social distancing. To meet our neighbors needs we ask for everyone to arrive on time for their scheduled shift.
Our current Client Services volunteer opportunities are:
- Tuesday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
- Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Interested in working with us? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (206) 367-3477 for more information. We hope to hear from you soon!
About North Helpline
12736 33rd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125, US
We believe that all deserve adequate food, housing, and respect. We assist our neighbors in obtaining basic needs that affirm their human dignity and worth.
North Helpline is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1989 by concerned citizens, business leaders, service organizations, and local church members who saw their neighbors experiencing difficult times. Recognized by such organizations as the United Way, the Seattle Foundation, the City of Seattle, and the Greater Seattle Council of Churches. North Helpline provides a variety of emergency services to local residents; including a food bank, financial aid to prevent evictions and utility shut-offs, hygiene supplies, diapers and baby food; and referrals to other agencies that help residents get back on their feet.
We distribute food to our neighbors in North Seattle three times a week, keeping over 1,200 individuals fed. Our work would not be possible without the thousands of volunteer hours served here every year.
