Home Delivery Packing Specialist

Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank in Lake City!

To counter these barriers, North Helpline provides home delivery to homebound individuals every other week on Thursdays. We pack on Thursday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with dietary needs and restrictions in mind. Due to this and the particular needs of some neighbors, attention to detail is a key attribute needed to help pack these boxes. Dietary knowledge for needs such as diabetes, gluten intolerance, and food allergies, as well as the ability to lift up to 35 pounds is also a plus. Interested in working with us? Please email volunteers@northhelpline.org or call us at (206) 367-3477 for more information. We hope to hear from you soon!

Medical Professionals Needed for COVID-19 Testing Clinic Support

Are you a medical professional with a heart to serve your community's most vulnerable? Come volunteer with Medical Teams International as we respond to this global pandemic by helping to make sure all have access to testing and that our communities are safe. We are seeking medical volunteers to help administer COVID-19 nasal swab tests at mobile clinic sites and provide patient intake. The clinics will operate throughout King County and serve some of Seattle’s most vulnerable populations - i.e. communities that live in congregate housing facilities, shelters, encampments, and transitional housing units. The clinics will be split into two shifts from either 9am-1pm or 1-5pm and volunteers can serve during either the morning/afternoon shift or for the entire day. As you are aware, this is a rapidly changing situation and we may need to either expand or scale down operations as we look at how best to support local health systems and safely serve beneficiaries during this time. We greatly appreciate your willingness, patience, and understanding. If you are interested in applying, please follow the link below. Select "Mobile Dental | Care & Connect" as your main area of focus. https://www.cognitoforms.com/MedicalTeamsInternational1/VolunteerApplication Thank you for considering serving with Medical Teams International!

Dental and Medical Volunteer Support with Mobile Dental Clinics

Left untreated, dental problems can lead to pain, difficulty eating and increase the risk of debilitating health conditions. Two significant obstacles prevent people from receiving dental care - cost and access. Medical Teams International is committed to breaking down these barriers by delivering free dental care to patients on our fleet of Mobile Dental vans. We’re proud to serve our neighbors with the largest volunteer-powered Mobile Dental program in the United States. Are you a dental or medical professional who’d like to serve vulnerable neighbors in your community? Dental professional volunteers are the backbone of the Mobile Dental Program. In five to seven hours, you can see around eight patients who are in desperate need of dental care. Our clinics provide extractions and fillings with an occasional specialty clinic. We are always looking for dentists, dental assistants and registered dental hygienists to volunteer. Commit to one day a week, month, quarter, or year. Volunteers choose which day and how often. Additionally, in light of COVID-19, we are also seeking medical professionals to provide basic medical screenings as people arrive to the clinics. These clinics operate through King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties. Apply today by clicking on the following link: https://www.cognitoforms.com/MedicalTeamsInternational1/VolunteerApplication Select "Mobile Dental | Care & Connect" as your area of focus.
