Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Looking for a great volunteer project for your group of friends or coworkers? Volunteering as a group in a Bridging warehouse will make a huge difference to families transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Groups range in size from 5 - 25 and generally spend three hours on-site. We require all volunteers to be 14 years of age or older in our warehouses.
TYPICAL PROJECTS INCLUDE: Sorting through donated goods, loading and unloading trucks, rolling linens, and stocking shelves for client shopping. Specific projects will be determined on the day you arrive, based on the inventory and the final size of your group.
WHEN CAN I BOOK A GROUP PROJECT? Book year-round. Pick a date, time and location (Bloomington or Roseville) for your event. All projects must be scheduled in advance. Group shifts are typically available: Tuesday - Thursday between 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Limited Saturday shifts.
