North Helpline is proud to be a partner site for Washington Service Corps. Volunteers through this program receive a stipend, education award upon successful completion of service, training, health coverage, and childcare assistance if eligible. Currently, North Helpline is seeking three AmeriCorps members to serve our neighbors. Positions would start on September 1st and continue until May 15th (8.5 months). Members who serve in these roles work directly with our neighbors to provide access to nutritious food. Members will direct volunteers to ensure operations run efficiently.

These positions require members to stand for long periods and be able to lift 30lbs repetitively. Members serving in this position will need to go into a freezer and work in the warehouse which is not climate controlled. Applicants should have moderate computer abilities. Ability to speak a second language (Spanish, Mandarin, Ukrainian, Russian, Tigrinya) is highly desired.

Our Home Delivery program partners with community members and organizations to serve over 250 households that are unable to come to our regular distributions. This member will create and manage a list of clients along with their dietary requirements to ascertain which items should be packed. Using this information, the Home Delivery Coordinate will collaborate closely with the warehouse staff to determine what foods should be offered. This member will be responsible for overseeing a group of four to six volunteers as the boxes are assembled.

Maintaining and managing the volunteer drivers and routes will be a large component of this position. In addition to packing boxes for neighbors, the coordinator will need to work with partner organizations and drivers to ensure all routes are covered as well as adjusting routes as new households are added. The member in this position will be the first point of contact for our clients who are unable to come into the food bank and will need to enroll new clients, provide orientation for new volunteers and train new Home Delivery Drivers. Careful attention to detail will be required to select items that match dietary requirements.

Driver’s License and ability to drive U-Haul-like vehicles required. This position may occasionally be called upon to make deliveries when volunteers are not available.

Responsibilities:

  • Partner closely with the warehouse staff to prepare boxes to be delivered to clients who are unable to attend our regular distribution;

  • Register new clients and drivers and provide necessary information or training;
  • Provide monthly reporting;
  • Send regular communication to volunteers, neighbors and partner organizations;
  • Work with neighbors who are unable to come to our regular distribution or participate in home delivery to provide food on alternative days.
