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.
This is one of the best volunteer jobs I've ever had - I love working in the kitchen every week helping to prepare and package the meals which are then delivered by other volunteers. The head cook is wonderful and it is a pleasant and productive atmosphere. My weekly committment is 3-1/2 hours per week on one day per week. Usually there are 2 to 3 other volunteers during my shift. We take a lot of pride in working efficiently so that we complete all the meals and packaging assigned to our shift. We know we are making a difference in peoples lives. I highly recommend this volunteer opportunity!
