Volunteer during the Holidays!

Though we often have enough “regulars” for our normal activities, this particular time of year we can use a few extra set of hands on deck for short-term activities and/or subs to give our regulars a needed break! If you can help, please email us at volunteer@afac.org to learn more.

Sub home delivery drivers for Tuesday/Wednesday

We are looking for substitute home delivery drivers for TUESDAY, 11/21 and WEDNESDAY, 11/22. You would be given a route of 3-5 clients the day prior. You would come to AFAC during a designated hour (either 10:00-11:00 or 12:00-1:00 on both days). Then, you would pick up pre-packed groceries and drive to each house on the list. You will need to have enough room in your car for approximately 7 milk crates. This is a great opportunity to bring a friend with you since you will be carrying 30 pounds of groceries. You do not need to enter anyone’s house. You simply call and tell them you are on your way, knock upon your arrival, and leave. We estimate that it takes approximately one hour to deliver the groceries after you leave AFAC.

Pick up food donations

We need strong people who are available in the daytime on short notice for an hour or two here and there to pick up small food donations from businesses, apartment building lobbies, schools, etc. This allows our staff drivers to concentrate on larger drives. Our peak time is now through the end of the year.

You can pick and choose which assignments you will accept. You should have a reasonably sized car and it’s a great time to bring a friend with you. We might also ask you to pick up food donation boxes at AFAC and deliver them to places at the start of their drives. We would ask that you set aside one day per week to be available.

Loading dock help

AFAC gets a great number of food donations this time of year and our staff have to continue their regular duties. It would be great to have someone here for shifts (we would recommend a two hour shift between 8:00-4:00 M-F) to learn how to do the intake of food donations. We would ask that this be a weekly commitment between now and the end of the year (we understand holiday travel).
