Join HYR as we undertake our first community service project for 2017.
This quarter, we will be assisting the Houston Food Bank with their warehouse duties.
To participate in this effort, you MUST RSVP with the food bank. Please follow the link below:
Volunteer support is critical to our mission of leading the fight against hunger! The Houston Food Bank utilizes volunteers six days a week at our Main Warehouse. Whether you come out as an individual or part of a group, we are certain you will have an enjoyable, positive experience.
Volunteers MUST be at least 6 years old and supervised by parent or guardian throughout the shift.
All volunteers under the age of 18 also need a completed Youth Volunteer Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian. A copy of this form can be downloaded by clicking the RESOURCES tab on your Volunteer Profile page.
Please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled volunteer shift so you can check in, receive instructions and start on time. If you arrive after the start of your shift, you may have to wait up to 30 minutes for orientation and assignment. If members of your group arrive late, we cannot guarantee they will be able to join you in your assigned project area.
Description of Duties
Varies with the makeup volunteers for shift. Most of the projects at the warehouse involve inspection, sorting, and repackaging of donated food items for community distribution.
Address 535 Portwall St.
Houston, TX. 77029
From Downtown: Take IH-10 east and exit Gellhorn St. (exit #774). Make a U-turn at Gellhorn, stay on feeder and turn right on Portwall St.
If space permits it, you may park in the front parking lot, but in the event of a large volunteer turnout, you may be directed to our overflow lot located behind the building.
How to Dress? Closed-toe shoes REQUIRED — smashed toes are no fun, so we strongly enforce this safety precaution. Casual dress, long pants (preferred), t-shirt with sleeves.
