Volunteer Opportunities Monday, May 13-Wednesday, May 15

The Annual National Association of Letter Carrier’s Food Drive is taking place tomorrow, Saturday, May 11. Please remember to leave a bag of non-perishable food, such as canned vegetables, pasta, cereal, and other items that do not require refrigeration by your mailbox for your letter carrier to collect.

We are still in need of support to weigh, sort, and pack this food at our collection site so it can be transported to local pantries and other feeding programs. The following volunteer opportunities are available next week (Mon-Wed)

SORTING/PACKING- Groups are welcome! Note that, for safety reasons, the minimum age for volunteering is 12. Groups with minors under 18 must bring adequate adult supervision (minimum of 1 adult for every 5 children).

HEAVY LIFTING- You must be comfortable operating a pallet jack and moving between 200 and 1,000 pounds of food. The minimum age for volunteering in this capacity is 18. Training is required and will be conducted on-site on the day of the event.
