Volunteers are essential to our success and play an important role in everything we do! There are many ways in which individuals as well as groups can touch the lives of our community through volunteering at the York County Food Bank. We are always in search of individual volunteers as well as corporate, church and school groups. We have a variety of on-going needs and can use volunteers on a regular basis year-round. You must be 18 years of age or older, or be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Below is a list of various projects that we could use your help with:
Food Sorting – Before shipments go out to the agencies that we support, we sort food into different food categories, check expiration dates and discard damaged or unfit products. Some heavy lifting is sometimes needed and volunteers may be standing on their feet for several hours at a time.
Deliveries/Pick Ups – We often need volunteer drivers who are willing to pick up food that is collected at various locations throughout York County. You must be at least 18 years of age, have your own vehicle and be able to provide copy of your drivers’ license and proof of insurance. We do not reimburse for gas.
Clerical – Assist us with various clerical and administrative tasks such as phone calls, data entry, filing, mailings, etc. To help us with these tasks you should have basic computer knowledge as well as good clerical skills.
Cleaning – Since we store and manage food products, cleanliness is a must. We can often use assistance with cleaning out coolers and other general maintenance cleaning within our offices and warehouse.
Special Events Assistance – We are frequently looking for help in coordinating and implementing various events and activities throughout the year. General event planning could include helping us with mailings, phone calls, assisting in the development of communications, coordination with our member agencies, etc.
