Thanksgiving Baskets

Donation Sorting & Packing

Donation Sorting: Help unload and organize the food donations that will make up our Thanksgiving Baskets. Volunteers will be lifting, carrying, and sorting food products throughout their shifts some work may involve being outside - bring a coat and gloves. Ages 8+ (must volunteer with an adult)

Vegetable Sorting/Bagging: Prepare for distribution by helping unload bulk vegetables (potatoes, carrots, and onions), sort out any expired or damaged produce for composting, and assemble individual portion produce bags by weight.  Ages 8 + (must volunteer with an adult)

Basket Packing: Prepare for distribution by packaging all of the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal into family sized bags. Volunteers will be lifting and carrying items weighing up to 30 lbs. Ages 8+ (must volunteer with an adult)

When signing up for a shift, please ensure you are available for the entire time. Due to the extremely large number of volunteers we work with to make Thanksgiving Baskets a success, shifts may not be shortened or split.

Groups: Volunteer are groups are welcome! Groups are limited to 10 spots for any one shift for these roles, but you are welcome to sign up for multiple days/times if more members would like to help.


Youth: Many youth volunteer to help with Thanksgiving Baskets. Youth must be accompanied by an appropriate number of adults and be supervised at all times. Youth must be old enough to participate in activities. Please do not bring children who are too young to help, there is a lot going on and this can become unsafe - if you have questions about this please ask. When registering for your shift, please include the ages of all youth who will be participating.

Parking/Biking:There is plenty of on-street parking available around the center (please leave our lot free for program participants). We are also on a bike path and have bike parking available (please lock your bike).


Where to meet: When you arrive for your shift please go to the gym, which is the large unattached building behind the playground/parking lot. When you arrive for your shift please go to the gym, which is the large unattached building behind the playground/parking lot.
