With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the Sunshine Division will distribute over 3,800 Holiday Food Boxes this December. RSVPs are required to participate in delivery day and warehouse distribution day.
2018 Delivery Day – Saturday, December 22nd – 9am to 12pm
Scheduling for holiday volunteerism begins in October. We will be scheduling volunteers to deliver from Sunshine Division’s two locations (N Thompson and SE Stark) first. We will not be using SE Precinct as a delivery hub this year. Scheduling for volunteer support at North and East police precincts will take place after volunteer positions at Sunshine Division’s locations are full.
Delivery Driver signups for delivery day this year will take place via our new online system at: https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2522606/false
Please note that one “spot” equates to one “vehicle” in the online system. Proof of insurance is required to drive and insurance forms will be provided closer in to delivery day.
Warehouse Car Box Loaders:
Due to limited space in the warehouse with active cars and equipment, only volunteers physically able to perform all forms of lifting will be in the warehouse on delivery day. Please note that volunteers loading cars (everyone in the warehouse) at both Sunshine Division locations must meet the following physical requirements:
- Able to lift 45 pounds repeatedly for long periods of time
- Bend, lift, and twist repeatedly
- Stand for extended periods of time on concrete floors
- Must be able to perform all loading roles in the warehouse including: lifting 45 pound food boxes, frozen food items, etc.
This is not a position for people with back problems or physical conditions that limit their ability to lift repeatedly.
Remaining Food Box Warehouse Distribution – Sunday, December 23rd – 9am to 1pm
5 -6 volunteers are needed to help distribute boxes to clients who were not home for delivery. This position includes lifting up to 45 pounds.
