We are currently seeking volunteers to help with this year’s event on September 25.
We need help with three tasks for the Big Blue Food Drive:
Our driver/runner pairs are assigned a pre-determined route to collect the curbside donations. These volunteers should arrive at St. Vincent Place by no later than 9:45 am the day of the event, and, depending on the route, should be done within a couple hours.
Our sorters help to sort the donations once they arrive here at St. Vincent Place. These volunteers generally start around 11:00 am once the donations start to arrive. They can commit to the full day of sorting (usually until about 3pm) or stick around for a set amount of time.
To ensure that the community knows about the event and remembers to put out their donations, we like to have volunteers drop flyers in mailboxes in the week leading up to the event (so starting on September 19). This is a great way for high school students to earn volunteer hours!
If you can help with the event, please get in touch with Sara as soon as possible. You can call 705-253-2770 ext. 4 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
