November 20 @ 8:15 AM - 10:45 AM
Join The Rich Center in supporting a great cause! The United Way has been a great partner to us for many years and we look forward to supporting this important community food distribution event.
Both food packers and drivers are needed (or both). We ask that volunteers who pack groceries arrive at the pavilion at Southwoods at 8:15 am. We will begin unloading the grocery trucks. Staff from United Way will explain the packaging process. This part usually lasts 1 hour, depending on the number of volunteers. If you are packaging and driving, a staff person will tell you when to pull your car up.
Drivers are asked to arrive between 9:30am and 10:00 am. We suggest have two people per car. You will join the line of cars. When you pull up to the group of volunteers, open your trunk and unlock your doors so they can quickly get your vehicle packed. A staff member will then hand you a sheet of paper that lists the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the people you are delivering to. We use software that selects the most efficient route, so follow the order of the paper. Routes typically range from 6-8 stops. When you arrive at a house, ring the doorbell or knock on the door, put the groceries near the front door, and head back to your car.

Please contact Mike Latessa ASAP at the center if you are interested in driving/delivery.
