Give a helping hand to the Lower East Side community!

The United Jewish Council of the East Side (UJCES) works to support the Lower East Side and wider NYC community through a wide range of human services and community development programs. While the majority of programs are oriented to the needs of seniors, UJCES also operates programs for families and children. UJCES volunteers are essential to our mission as we serve the community. During the COVID-19 pandemic, UJCES continues to support New Yorkers with vital services including food programs, as the need for food assistance has grown exponentially.

DETAILS:

Meal Delivery Assistance Volunteers assist the team at UJCES's Adult Luncheon Club on-site, as well as on walking deliveries to clients. As a volunteer, you will help organize and deliver food. Tasks include:

  • Assist with unloading food from a truck and bringing items inside the Adult Luncheon Club
  • Help count, organize and pack meals into carts
  • Accompany a team member on walking routes to transport and deliver meals to clients (group volunteers will split up during routes)

No experience is necessary, and training is provided on site. Carts are provided for easy walking transport; you may bring a personal grocery cart if desired, although not required.

Volunteer shifts take place rain or shine, and involve walking within approximately 30 minutes of the UJCES site. Some delivery routes involve accompanying team members on multiple trips from the UJCES site. UJCES practices recommended social distancing and safety protocols related to COVID-19.

You can join compassionate people in delivering nutritious food to the New York City community.

DATE & TIME:

We are looking for volunteers who are available on weekdays from 9:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., with greater need on Mondays and Fridays.

We are also looking for additional support from 6-8 volunteers per day on September 14, 17, 20, 24, and 27. Please apply or inquire as soon as possible to get involved.

HOW TO SIGN UP:

Join the UJCES team! You can sign up on your own, or with a group of friends, family, or coworkers (group of 3 maximum each day, unless otherwise noted). Please complete an online application form at ujceastside.org/volunteer-nyc. You must be 18+ years old to volunteer.
