volunteer while social distancing 

Volunteers like you are an essential part of our organization! Your help with the day-to-day tasks, maintenance and organization of our Packing Center warehouse is invaluable and keeps the mission going strong! Individuals and groups of up to 10 volunteers, ages 12 and up are welcome to sign up here to register for a Public Volunteer Workday. All upcoming Public Volunteer Workdays are listed below, scroll down to register for a specific date.

 

You must register if you'd like to volunteer, that way we can let you know if a workday is rescheduled or canceled. After you've registered, please fill out the Volunteer Release & Waiver of Liability.

 

Please read all the information below and let us know if you have any questions. We can be reached Monday-Friday 10a-3p at 623-934-3274 or by email at info@packagesfromhome.org. Companies and groups can sign up groups of 10 or less using the same process.

What to Expect:

When you come volunteer with us there are many tasks you might perform including, but not limited to: 

 

  • organizing donations

  • sorting donations

  • quality assurance/control and inventory of incoming donations

  • proofreading letters

  • light cleaning/dusting and trash removal

  • running errands

  • assembling care packages, as needed*

  • *CARE PACKAGES ARE PACKED SOLELY AT THE DISCRETION OF PACKAGES FROM HOME, BASED ON OUR MILITARY MEMBER CARE PACKAGE WAITING LIST AND AVAILABLE FUNDING.

What to Wear: 

We ask that you wear comfortable clothing with close-toed shoes and leave valuable belongings at home. While we do provide lockers for you to store your personal items, Packages From Home is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items. Water fountains are available in our warehouse and office space. 

 

Physical Requirements:

We ask that general volunteers be able to lift 20-50 lbs at a time. We also have lighter duty volunteer tasks that do not involve lifting or carrying heavy items, upon request. One example of a lighter duty volunteer task would be letter proofreading or data entry. Volunteers needing lighter duty tasks should identify themselves to their volunteer coordinator on the day of the event to seek out appropriate tasks for their limitations.

Packages From Home cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment. Please be aware that we ship, store, and handle peanuts at this facility. 

 

Age Limitations:

Volunteers must be 12 years of age or older and supervised by their parent/guardian at all times while volunteering.

Please finish registering for the event and complete our required volunteer waiver at www.packagesfromhome.org/volunteer-release prior to arriving. This waiver only needs to be completed once in your lifetime.
