The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Everyday food goes to waste while families in our community go hungry. You can help. Food Recovery Drivers are needed weekday mornings between 8am-12pm, to pick up donations from Manassas-area grocery stores/restaurants and deliver the food to our Hunger Resource Center to distribute to the over 700 families we server each month. Volunteers must be able to commit to at least one shift a week and lift up to 50 lbs. Drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license; vehicle is provided. Ride-along training with experienced volunteer is provided.
