Join us to fight poverty and hunger!

Lifelong's Chicken Soup Brigade (CSB) needs volunteers to lift and stack boxes, unload trucks, repackage, bag, prepare, and pack grocery bags in our warehouse. The warehouse is the foundation of our work in getting food to clients who are living with and at risk of serious illnesses. Get a workout in while making sure food gets out to people who need it!

The need is greater now than ever! Millions of people continue to face challenges with putting food on the table. Since March 2021, we have DOUBLED our meal production to expand our outreach and we aim to feed as many people as possible during the pandemic. Let's come together and work to strengthen our community!

Where you come in: Lifelong's Chicken Soup Brigade (CSB) needs volunteers to lift and stack boxes, unload trucks, repackage, bag, prepare, and pack grocery bags in our warehouse. The warehouse is the foundation of our work in getting food to clients who are living with and at risk of serious illnesses. Get a workout in while making sure food gets out to people who need it most! With nearly 1.5 million pounds of food coming through our door every year, we need all hands on deck to help process the donations.

Guidelines & Accommodations: Our volunteer sessions are fun, rewarding, and inclusive! However, we do have a few guidelines in place to ensure everyone's safety and success. Warehouse Helper Volunteers are typically on their feet for most of their shift and need to be able to lift 10-30 pounds. However, we can also accommodate individuals that need to sit during most of their shift or are not able to lift the 10-30 pound weight, just let us know!

COVID-19 Precautions: Lifelong is always dedicated to keeping our volunteers and clients as safe as possible. During the Coronavirus pandemic, all volunteers are asked to wear appropriate face coverings, wash hands frequently, and stay at home if they or a family member isn't feeling well. We have also included additional safety measures to ensure proper social distancing within the Kitchen and Warehouse. The health and well-being of our volunteers, staff and clients are our top priority and we are actively following CDC safety guidelines to maintain a safe volunteering experience.

Shift Times: 2.5 hours per week, Monday through Thursday: 9:30am-12pm and 12:30-3pm

Ages: 12-15 with a parent/guardian. Ages 16-17 with a parental consent form which we will provide.
