ALIVE! Grocery Bag Packers
ALIVE! Needs Grocery Packers
Help ALIVE!’s mass bag packing operation to supply thousands of grocery bags/week for distribution to food-insecure Alexandrians. Volunteers are required to do some light to moderate lifting and bending over to pick up cases of food from ground level. You wll be on your feet the entire time. Wear long sleeves/pants and/or bug spray if mosquitos bother you.
Date/Time: Varied weekday shifts, generally 2-3 hours time blocks; see postings for specific dates and hours.
Location: 116 S. Quaker Ln. (old Dash bus barn). There is street parking available; do not park in the lot.
Close-toed shoes required. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear long sleeves/pants and/or bug spray if mosquitos bother you.
You will be asked to take your temperature with a no-contact thermometer before you may begin work. Gloves will be provided. Each work station is at least 6ft apart for physical distancing.
All volunteers must wear cloth face coverings. If you do not have one, ALIVE! will provide one for you. Volunteers should fashion face coverings from household items or common materials, such as clean T-shirts or other clean cloths that can cover the nose and mouth area. Medical personal protective equipment such as N95 respirators or surgical masks are necessary for this purpose as these should be reserved for the appropriate personnel. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
* Only individuals registered to volunteer may show up on site in order to maintain physical distance rules. While we appreciate the overwhelming volunteer spirit during the health crisis, we cannot have additional people on site beyond those that are registered. Please do not bring friends or family to help.
