JRA Volunteer Food Packing

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

JRA needs help to pack boxes of food to distribute to low-income families in the Greater Philadelphia region. June’s packing shifts will include two different packing styles in order to respect individuals’ comfort levels while volunteering in the warehouse. Individuals can register in advance for the type of box packing they prefer using JRA’s sign-up form. Two shifts will take place (9- 11 a.m. and noon-2 p.m.). Advance registration is required.

Option A – Traditional packing: This is where we assign several volunteers to stand at stations of food stacked on pallets along the packing line and place items in the boxes, which are carried down the line by other volunteers.

Option B – Individual cart packing: Volunteers will pack boxes in an individual assembly-line style, where each volunteer will travel down the line with their own cart, pack their own items into the boxes, close up their own boxes and then hand them off to a volunteer who will stack them onto a pallet. Cart packing will be reserved for families with children under the age of 12, as the number of spots are limited for this type of packing.

Masks will be required at all times in the warehouse. Hand sanitation stations and gloves will be readily available for volunteers.
