We need volunteers to help with things like joining us as a Lunch Hour Hero! What does this mean? Consider reimagining an hour or so of your day to "don a cape" and make an easy but important impact over lunch, instead of working out or taking a coffee break. Read on to see the quick and easy ways that an hour our two of your time can change things for people in our community!
Meal Distributions: These heroes help distribute meals to children in our community at one of the many distribution sites run by Connecting Kids to Meals, Village on Adams and other partners. If you are able to help on multiple days please do so as consistent volunteers will help expidite the distribution, and make it easier to ensure healthy distribution practices. Think about being a #LunchHourHero to make a big impact over lunch! Most of these locations are outside, so dress appropriately.
Meal Kit / Supply Load Up / Sorting: These heroes will help in a variety of ways with loading/unloading materials and completed kits. Locations will vary, and volunteers should feel comfortable lifting boxes and tubs ranging from 20 - 30 lbs. Please see shift description for location details.
Snack Pack Builds: Heroes will help pack shelf stable snack packs (or dried fruite kits) at United Way, which will be handed out at Connecting Kids to Meals and partner distribution sites every Friday.
Senior Wellness Kit Builds: Volunteers will help assemble wellness/hygiene kits for seniors in partnership with the Area Office on Aging at the Margaret Hunt Senior Center.
Please sign up for available shifts below (simply click on the button to sign up). We are doing all that we can to keep these opportunities small group, and ask volunteers to take their temperature before heading out to any of the volunteer sites, bring with them a mask/face covering which must be worn at the site. On arrival volunteers need to wash hands, wear gloves & masks, etc.
We ask that if you are sick, are someone in a high risk audience or someone who cares for that population, you do not volunteer for a public facing shift at this time.
By signing up for our volunteer newsletter or visiting www.volunteerToledo.org you can stay up-to-date on new needs in our community. Change doesn't happen alone, even a single volunteer hour makes a huge difference!
