This packing role is mission-critical, so we do want to ensure we have the volunteer power to make it happen each week.

We will continue to follow COVID screening guidelines with anyone who comes into our warehouse to ensure the safety of everyone packing and working here. We also follow social distancing guidelines.

We have made a schedule starting in September, so if there is a steady shift or individual shifts you are looking to book for certain weeks – we are happy to fill the schedule accordingly. The minimum age for our volunteers is 14, or 12 if accompanied by an adult. We are also able to give volunteer hours to anyone who comes into a volunteer. We can do a letter or fill in a form – whatever works for you, works for us. Each shift we are looking for 5-7 volunteers.

There are two shifts each day with the hours being:
AM SHIFT: 9:30am – 12:30pm
PM SHIFT: 1-3:30pm

We will continue to follow this schedule:
Monday AM
Tuesday AM
Tuesday PM
Wednesday AM
Wedesnday PM
Thursday AM

Please let me know what dates and shifts you want to come in for.
