Homeward Alliance – Seeking Distribution Assistant Volunteers
February 8, 2020 @ 12:00 am - February 9, 2020 @ 11:59 pm
[Service Happenings Opportunity]
Homeward Alliance operates a continuum of programs and initiatives, ranging from critical survival gear, to employment services, to homelessness prevention. We are not only an alliance of services, but also an alliance of volunteers, donors, agency partners and other community stakeholders. We envision a community in which homelessness is rare, short-lived and non-recurring.
Distribution Assistants come to the Murphy Center in the afternoons to assist the Distribution Coordinator (Brennan) with day to day tasks including- fielding, transporting, and sorting donations- stocking and organizing the Gear Room, Food Pantry, Closets, and Storage Cubes- picking up supplies- other miscellaneous tasks as necessary. Distribution Assistants should be comfortable with some heavy lifting, carrying, and moving bags, bins, and other large objects. Ideally, Distribution Assistants should have good driving records and be able to pass an MVR check to drive Homeward Alliance vehicles, including a large van used for Street Outreach and hauling supplies. This is preferred, but not essential. Shifts listed are ideal times, but we’re glad to work around your schedule if you have a block of available afternoon time to help out.
[Afternoons Monday through Friday (according to your availability)]
