Loaves & Fishes Event Listing & Registration


Contact Us 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us this Christmas season!

 

With increased donations for the month of December, and preparation for Hamperville (the distribution of our Christmas hampers) lots of extra help is required!  You are able to sign up for volunteer shifts for sorting and preparing food for distribution at our warehouse, and for the distribution of food at one of our many depots.

 

Three Ways to Help:

 

  1. Christmas Food Prep and Sorting:
    • Entails all food sorting and preparation for distribution
    • Takes place at our warehouse located on 210 Fry Street
    • Generally, there is a morning shift (9:00 am - 11:30 am) and an afternoon shift (12:30 - 3:00 pm), and from Dec 17-21, there is also some evening shift (6:00-8:00 pm).
  1. Hamperville Distribution Dec 11-23:
    • Serving at one of our food distribution depots for 2.5 - 3.5 hour shifts
    • Help keep food stations stocked
    • Assist Hamperville guests as a "Shopper", while they collect their food
  2. Food4U Sorting and Distribution:
    • Extra distribution times (called Food4U depots) between Christmas and New Years (Dec 26-30)
    • Food prep in the warehouse in the morning (9 am - 12 pm)
    • Afternoon distribution at various depot (12:30-3:00 pm)
  3. New To The Public This Year-- Grocery Store Food Drive!!:
    • Dec 09-20: we will have teams at local grocery stores
    • On-site opportunity for the public to donate food items

We Welcome Your Help!

 

If you are a returning volunteering, and we have your current email address on file, you will be able to log in and register for your shifts.  (You may need to go through the process of getting a new password.)

 

If you are new to us, you will be asked to register with us and to create a new profile prior to be able to sign up and volunteer with us. Regarding volunteering with children:

 

There are many events listed, so it is easiest to start with a date, and see which times and locations are available.

 

If  you want to register a group—whether it’s a service or sports group, work or school group, please contact me directly to sign up.   (Please note that there is already limited availability for groups; sorry in advance, if there isn't space to accommodate your group this year.)

 

Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with us this Christmas season!

 

We appreciate your desire to be a help in the community you live in!
