Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: So What Else

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 4 people are interested

In addition to our food pantry and pop-up distributions, the So What Else Montgomery County team also operates a robust home delivery program for clients all across the DMV who are unable to leave their homes, either due to disabilities, lack of transportation, or both. As a result, we are always in need of volunteer home delivery drivers that can donate their time, and their vehicle, to help transport groceries from our pantry to our clients.

Once signed up, volunteers will reach out to Megan ahead of time confirming their presence, and then arrive at our pantry on the day and time of their choosing to pick up grocery bags and deliver them. Each driver will follow a predetermined route prepared by our team. Most delivery routes take around 1-2 hours to complete, depending on the number of clients that day. More information can be provided at the time of the pick up.

Interested volunteers should sign up for shifts by checking out our VolunteerHub volunteering platform here: https://sowhatelse.volunteerhub.com/

Requirements: Interested drivers must be 18 years or older, bring their own vehicle, and have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance.

*At this time, we DO NOT provide vehicles for drivers.

We encourage you to sign up for any shift, even if you can't stay for the entire time. Simply inform the site lead upon arrival so our team can accommodate your schedule.

*To get to our warehouse for your report time, type "4924 Wyaconda Rd, North Bethesda, MD" into your GPS. This will take you directly to the entrance of the parking lot. After you pull into the lot, drive straight and turn left as if you are headed to Dogtopia. Keep driving and pass Dogtopia. Our warehouse is to the left of Dogtopia, directly around the corner. Parking is not permitted in front of Dogtopia and against the fence. When you arrive please park and look for a staff person by the loading dock or in the resource center, then let them know you're there to volunteer.

About So What Else

Location:

4924 Wyaconda Rd, North Bethesda, MD 20852, US

Mission Statement

So What Else’s mission is to improve the lives of children and families living in underserved communities in the Baltimore-Washington Metro Area by providing food security, access to basic necessities, and high-quality out-of-school time programs in literacy, athletics, and the visual and performing arts while inspiring young people to give back to the community by creating volunteer opportunities for individuals of all ages.

Description

So What Else (SWE) is a nonprofit founded in 2009 that strives to improve the lives of children and families living in underserved communities in Maryland, D.C. & Baltimore by providing free food, home goods, high-quality, after-school time programs, and service opportunities to the children and families we serve. To support this work, we host a number of volunteer opportunities across the region in fields such as food recovery, teaching, event support and more. We strive to make volunteer service accessible & meaningful for people of all backgrounds, experiences, interests, capabilities, and capacities.

Roles are available for everyone from 15 y/o up (14 or younger may serve with a parent / designated adult guardian). Some tasks require a bit of bending and lifting (typically 2 to 5 lbs. occasionally up to 50lbs) and or being on your feet for extended periods. No one will be asked or expected to lift, carry or move any item that cause injury. Breaks and hydration are strongly encouraged. Smart teamwork and shared effort are paramount. Help from SWE site hosts and fellow volunteers is always available. For any special needs or considerations, please email volunteer@sowhatelse.org outlining your questions, concerns or requirements.
