On Saturday, November 2nd, we will have 3 areas of opportunity. When volunteers arrive on campus, they will have the option to choose the area that they are most interested in serving. Volunteer opportunity #1 – Food Pantry. In the food pantry, volunteers will pack bags of non-perishable food items, distribute fresh breads & produce, stock shelves, organize food, etc. Volunteer Opportunity #2 – Clothes Closet. In the clothes closet, volunteers will organize & sort through donated clothing items, hang new clothes in the closet, and assist our guest find items that they are needing. Volunteer Opportunity # 3 – Adopt-a-Block Team. The adopt-a-block volunteers will pack up clothes, food, and other necessary items and will then distribute these items to our neighbors without transportation. Adopt-a-block team leaders will guide this project and all first time volunteers will be partnered with veteran volunteers who will show you the ropes.
Additional Supplies Needed: The Dream Center will provide all necessary supplies. We only ask that volunteers dress comfortably and plan to stay for the entire event (9am -12noon).
