Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
Volunteers needed for our Winter Collection at Tesco Park Road, Tesco Mather Avenue and Tesco Woolton on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th November. We are hoping to have a good presence at the stores, as we know donations are greater then, and would like 2 volunteers each hour between 10 and 5 on those days. We know that social distancing is still important – we’ll provide masks and gloves.
Corona-virus update and our volunteers
During the current pandemic we are working closely with Liverpool City Council, other foodbanks and other local charities to develop and implement plans that will help us through this crisis. In conjunction with North Liverpool Foodbank, we continue to support those who are struggling.
Our response to the corona-virus has meant that we have had to make changes to the way we do things. When someone arrives with a voucher we hand them a parcel of food and, at the moment, that is all we do. (Normally one of our volunteers would spend time with each foodbank user sharing a cup of tea, offering what other help we can give and signposting.) This way of doing things minimises the contact we have with clients but also means that we need far fewer volunteers than we usually would and we can manage with the help we already have in place.
The present situation is volatile and day to day we do not know what the future may bring. If you are interested in volunteering please e-mail us at [email protected] and we will respond if and when the situation changes and we are in need of your help.
Thank you so very much for considering helping at our foodbank. We really value our volunteer helpers and appreciate all that they do.
