If you are over age 18 and have 3 weekday hours to spare,
we want to hear from you!

We are looking for additional volunteers for our Salvage Sorting Room.
Volunteers sort first for safety
and then by category like soup, cereal, or juice.

  4. Hello, Otelia.
    We received both your messages about helping out in the salvage room and completing your community service hours by April 25th. Mary Mazur, one of our Volunteer Coordinators, will follow up with you directly. You can also reach her if you want at volunteers@regionalfoodbank.net. Thanks so much.

  5. I am interested in volunteering for the food bank
    During the day a few times a week

  6. I’d like to volunteer for the salvage sorting on Tuesdays from 1 to 4pm and can start next week, January 13.

  7. Hello, Gilda. Thanks for reaching out! I see you also completed a volunteer application online and received a response from Laura Martin, one of our Volunteer Coordinators. I’ll check with the Director of Warehouse Operations (Joel Winkler) to see if Tuesday afternoon shifts are available on a regular basis. The staff there works until 3:30, not 4:00, so the shift would need to be from 1:00-3:30 or 12:30-3:30. I’ll get back to you once I hear from Joel and we can go from there in terms of the exact times of the shift. Thanks so much!

  8. Hello, Gilda. We would love to have your help in the Salvage Sorting Room on Tuesday afternoons, starting January 13. I added you to the schedule for 12:30-3:30 since our warehouse employees’ days end at 3:30. I hope that’s OK! Be sure to dress warmly, in layers. It can be cold in the warehouse!

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks again,

    Tracey Martin
    traceym@regionalfoodbank.net or 518-786-3691, x227

  9. I would like to help out in the salvage room in the morning on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings. However, I cannot get there by 8:30. I CAN be there at 9AM.

    However, I cannot lift 50 lbs. IS that a problem?

    Please let me know.

  10. Hello, Anne. I am checking with the Director of Warehouse Operations and will reply directly to your email address once I hear back from him. Thank you!

  11. Reading your article helped me a lot and I agree with you. But I still have some doubts, can you clarify for me? I’ll keep an eye out for your answers.
