Description

A warehouse shift is a volunteer shift in our food pantry. The responsibilities in the food pantry include greeting donors, accepting donations, unloading and sorting donated items, putting together food bags, and directly serving our families. 

What's Needed To Complete

All Sacred Heart volunteers will need to complete an online volunteer profile and a volunteer orientation in order to participate in a warehouse shift.

Whose Help Is Required

Mom, Dad or other grown-up (some adult facilitation/involvement required).

Special Requirements

All volunteers must be 9 years old or older. Volunteers under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. All warehouse volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation in order to begin volunteering in the warehouse, and minors must have a parental permission form completed and signed. 

How It Makes A Difference

In the warehouse, we distribute food, clothing, and other essential items to over 400 families each day. This is one way in which we work to create a community united to ensure that every child and adult is free from poverty.
