ORGANIZATION: North Helpline

  • 9 people are interested

Some of the people who need to access services the most are unable to come to us - so we go to them! This program is special and has volunteers working one on one with our neighbors. We anticipate that neighbors and volunteers will form a friendship as they get to know each other.

With our Home Delivery Program, volunteers pick up pre-made boxes from our location in Lake City to deliver to neighbors in the area. This is a weekly or bi-weekly volunteer position that requires some training and at least a 9-month time commitment. Additionally, volunteers are required to have a valid driver's license, a personal vehicle with plenty of storage space, be comfortable lifting heavy boxes upwards of 20 pounds, and be available on Thursday afternoons between 1 and 5 pm.

Interested in working with us? For more information, please email volunteers@northhelpline.org or call us at (206) 367-3477. We hope to hear from you soon!

About North Helpline

Location:

12736 33rd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
