Weekend Survival Kits

2021/22 Packing Sessions and Delivery Support

Thank you for considering being a volunteer for Weekend Survival Kits!  Our volunteers are extremely important to our mission of giving hope to hungry kids, we could not do this without you! (Keep reading below)


Food Kit Packer – You will be assembling food kits with a team of volunteers. Normally this job consists of an assembly line style process of packing food into zip top bags and then grouping them for storage until Thursday’s pick-up.  However, in the age of COVID, many things have changed and sessions might look different than they have in the past.  Thank you for staying patient with us as we figure out the best way to serve our kids.  You will be standing and/or moving the entire time. (Note: There are a few light duty tasks if you have physical limitations.)

Food Kit Mover – You will be assisting the Delivery Drivers by loading food kits into their vehicles.  Dress in layers as this is both an indoor and outdoor activity.  You will be standing and/or moving the entire time.

Volunteer events are at hosted at TWO locations in the Greater Lansing Area.  

1) OKEMOS - Community Center of 2|42 Church in Okemos, address is 2630 Bennett Rd. (one driveway west of the church), the building with the green roof.

2) LANSING - Hill Center, address is 5815 Wise Rd. (use the North entrance, come around the outer drive, pass all the police cars and fencing, all the way to the greenhouses near the dumpsters/loading dock, WSK entrance will be labeled)

In order to ensure all of our volunteers feel safe, we ask that everyone wear a mask covering your nose and mouth the entire event.  Our safety protocols may change, please know that our goal is to keep our volunteers and the families we serve healthy.  We deeply appreciate you following these guidelines!    

We love having families volunteer together!  If you are bringing children, please consider their work stamina and willingness to abide by our COVID safety protocols.  We will need all the hard-working hands we can get. As always, thank you for your support! 

Please review the available slots and dates below.  You can select multiple dates if you’d like!  When you click the button next to the date you will see a check mark.  Then, you need to go to the bottom of the page and click the button that says "Submit & SignUp".  If you are signing up for multiple people, adjust the quantity as necessary. If you would like to volunteer and cannot be present for the whole time period, please make a note of that in your sign-up.
