Distribute food with MNPS/Second Harvest
Community Achieves has teamed up with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN to provide food support to MNPS families. We are looking for volunteers to help staff these distribution events, and ensure our families are fed during the Covid19 crisis.
Volunteer duties include:
- Unload the delivery truck of food at each school site
- Assemble boxes
- Pack boxes with food items for families
- Load boxes into family cars
These events will take place for the duration of school closures. Volunteer hours can range from 7am-3pm, with some school sites having a later start time (depending on the scheduled delivery time of the food truck to the school).
We encourage all event volunteers to practice "safe health" while our city deals with the Covid19 crisis. This includes washing your hands frequently, staying 6 feet from one another whenever possible, wiping down surfaces regularly using products provided on-site, and using door stops on doors within the building to keep them open and prevent everyone from touching them unnecessarily.
Most importantly, we ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms of the Covid19 virus, that you choose to stay home and not volunteer.
If you have any protective gear of your own (gloves, masks, etc.), we highly suggest that you wear those things to the event. We will try to provide those items each time, but it is very possible that shipments can be delayed due to the high request of these items across the country, and they may not make it in time for each week's distribution event.
If this project interests you, please consider the Glencliff or Maplewood locations first, as they tend to have more traffic that the other locations.
