SparkPortland has the opportunity to volunteer at the Oregon Food Bank again next month.
We need 5 to 10 people to work a Saturday morning shift, from 9:00 to 11:30 am.
Saturday, Dec. 22 - 9:00 to 11:30 am
The minimum age for this shift is 16 (sorry, no kids under 16 please)
from OFB: We have scheduled your group to come to the Portland Food Recovery Center where you will sort and box-up non-perishable food donations for people in need throughout Oregon. This is a fast-paced project and involves standing, lifting, and moving heavy boxes.
If you are unable to lift heavy boxes, that shouldn't stop you as accommodations can be made. I think the only heavy lifting that happened last time was 1derlandbound's husband spreading the rice-love, emptying 100 lb bags of rice into large bins. Otherwise, we all stood at a table and worked as a team to bag rice. There's no way to know what we'll be doing this coming shift.
If you have questions, please feel free to post them here, or send me a SparkMail.
If you're interested, please let me know in this thread, or send me a SparkMail.
