Volunteers Needed for Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive: May 10, 2014

Spring Greetings from the Wakefield Food Pantry!

With May right around the corner, we are once again looking forward to our annual Postal Food Drive — Stamp Out Hunger.  It is being held on Saturday, May 10th and this year we will be conducting the drive at the Galvin Middle School Cafeteria.

We have a variety of needs and shifts available and once again look forward to your help in making this another successful event.

2-5 pm-we welcome volunteers to work one hour shifts during this time and will need people to unload the Mail Trucks when they arrive, others to sort the received donations and bring them to the labeled tables and counters who will estimate the weight of the food received. We will also need help at the end of the shift (4-6 pm) to help transport the food over to the Pantry and clean up the cafeteria.

While it is hard to estimate how many donations will be coming in at any given time, we strive to be well-staffed in order to keep things running smoothly and truly appreciate your willingness to help along with your  understanding of possible periods of downtime.

Please contact us at by email:  volunteer@wifoodpantry.org. Let us know what activity (unloader, sorter, counter, transporter or clean-up) and time slot you are interested in so that we know where to place you on the schedule.  Also, please include a second time slot you would be willing to volunteer for in case your original request is already filled.  We will confirm your assignment via email once the master schedule is completed.

Thank you for your continued interest in volunteering for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry.
