Sirovich Center Food Pantry Volunteer


  

Event Description:

OVERVIEW

Our Sirovich Center has continued its support of NYC’s Older Adult community through virtual programming during the pandemic. As certain restrictions lessen, Sirovich is reopening its food pantry that occurs every weekly. We are looking for volunteers to help support the food pantry that  occurs each Wednesday 12pm- 2pm. Volunteers will assist in unloading, organizing, packaging, and distributing food packages to Older Adult members that come to Sirovich for the food pantry.

This is an in-person volunteering opportunity, and we want you to know that many precautions are in place. The facility is sanitized, social distancing is maintained, and PPE supplies are available for those that need it. Additionally, Sirovich will temperature check individuals coming to the site. If you are well and able, you will be providing valuable support to the Sirovich Center during this challenging time.
