Home Delivery Packing Specialist

Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank in Lake City! Some neighbors do not have the ability or connections necessary to shop for themselves at our weekly food distributions. To counter these barriers, North Helpline provides home delivery to homebound individuals every other week on Tuesday and Thursday. We pack on Tuesday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm and Thursday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with dietary needs and restrictions in mind. Because of 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!

Home Delivery Driver

Some of the people who need to access services the most are unable to come to us - so we go to them! This program is special and has volunteers working one on one with our neighbors. We anticipate that neighbors and volunteers will form a friendship as they get to know each other. With our Home Delivery Program, volunteers pick up pre-made boxes from our location in Lake City to deliver to neighbors in the area. This is a weekly or bi-weekly volunteer position that requires some training and at least a 9-month time commitment. Additionally, volunteers are required to have a valid driver's license, a personal vehicle with plenty of storage space, be comfortable lifting heavy boxes upwards of 20 pounds, and be available on Thursday afternoons between 1 and 5 pm. Interested in working with us? For more information, please email volunteers@northhelpline.org or call us at (206) 367-3477. We hope to hear from you soon!

Mid-Morning Grocery Rescue

Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank! Our local grocery stores supply us with weekly donations to distribute to our neighbors. Grocery rescue volunteers would ideally adopt a store and regularly pick-up these donations. After each pick-up, they would return any donated food to the food bank for weigh-in and sorting. Volunteers are required to have a valid drivers license. It is ideal that volunteers will have their own vehicles with plenty of storage space, but we have vans to borrow if your own car is unavailable. Volunteers should also be able to lift more than 50 lbs and grocery runs typically take about 2 hours. Interested in working with us? Please email foodbank@northhelpline.org or call us at (206) 367-3477. We hope to hear from you soon!

Client Services Volunteer

At North Helpline we assist neighbors with more than nutrition. Our Client Services team invites neighbors to access personal and household items including haircare, dental care and laundry & dish soap to further alleviate financial pressures. The Client Services volunteer positions prepare the personal and household items for distribution. This typically involves parcelling out laundry & dish soaps, creating hygiene packs for neighbors experiencing homelessness, repackaging diapers, menstruation products and stocking hygiene items and is based out of our Lake City site. Volunteers interested in Client Services are invited to join us for distribution first to have an understanding of the needs of this position. Because this position will work inside the Client Services office, volunteers often work independently, with another member of their own household or a Staff member. We keep volunteer crews small to help with social distancing. To meet our neighbors needs we ask for everyone to arrive on time for their scheduled shift. Our current Client Services volunteer opportunities are: Tuesday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm 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!

All overnight volunteers are supported by Overnight Supervisors and an Overnight Counselor, in case there are any questions or concerns during your shift. Volunteers work directly with our guests and help ensure the emotional and physical safety of the space. Overnight Volunteers are responsible for assisting in walk-arounds of the room every 10 minutes, being available for guests who require emergency assistance, and completing guest laundry. Overnight volunteers will spend most of their shift sleeping, and bedding is provided. We also provide dinner in the evening and breakfast in the morning to our Overnight Volunteers. We ask overnight volunteers to commit to one night a week. Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather, have had recent contact with anyone demonstrating COVID-19 symptoms, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms within the last 14 days. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions are discouraged from pursuing our in-shelter Evening and Morning volunteer roles at this time. Our Sanitation role, which maintains a greater level of social distancing, is still available to everyone. If you can help during this time and are healthy enough to do so, fill out an application on our website at http://www.rootsinfo.org/get-involved/volunteer/volunteer-application/ for your own welcome packet and all the information you will need to volunteer with us.

ROOTS In-Shelter Sunday Evening Sanitation Volunteer (Interim Location)

Evening Sanitation Shift (6pm-8pm, Sunday) ROOTS is seeking additional volunteers to help out at our interim location in Queen Anne at 157 Roy St. Seattle, WA before we move to our new home back in the U-District. Beginning on the night of Thursday, December 17th, all shelter operations will take place at the Queen Anne location until at least the end of January 2021. Typically, we suggest making a 6 month commitment but welcome anyone who is able to help at our interim location in Queen Anne for any length of time. You must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer with us. ROOTS is a young adult emergency shelter that is almost exclusively volunteer run. We are open 365 days a year, with up to 45 guests per night between the ages of 18-25. Volunteers are needed to help with operational tasks but most importantly volunteers will provide social support to the folks who stay here and build meaningful relationships. While time has gifted us with new volunteers, we are still in great need of additional volunteers at this moment. We require all volunteers and staff to wear gloves and face masks throughout the duration of their shift. Volunteers are free to bring in their own face masks or other PPE, and we can provide gloves and disposable face masks on-site. The wellbeing of our volunteers is of the utmost importance, and we only ask you to commit to volunteering if you are safely able to do so. Upon arriving to each shift your Volunteer Supervisor or other staff will ask you questions listed on the ROOTS COVID-19 screening guide and will take your temperature. Staff and guests are screened in the same way upon entering the space. We appreciate your understanding in this process. Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather, have had recent contact with anyone demonstrating Covid-19 symptoms, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other Covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions are discouraged from pursuing our in-shelter Evening and Morning volunteer roles at this time. Our Sanitation role, which maintains a greater level of social distancing, is still available to everyone. The King County Health Department made a visit to our shelter and completed a health assessment of which we scored an impressively high score for social distancing maintenance, cleaning, and sanitation. This is all thanks to our amazing volunteers! However, in order to continue this level of sanitation and safety for our guests, volunteers, and staff, we are in need of additional volunteers at this moment. Evening Sanitation Shift (6pm-8pm): Volunteers will come in before the shelter opens to disinfect all shelter beds and deep clean the shelter space. We work to limit the number of volunteers during the Sanitation shift to help maintain social distancing. If you can help during this time and are healthy enough to do so, fill out an application on our website at http://www.rootsinfo.org/get-involved/volunteer/volunteer-application/ for your own welcome packet and all the information you will need to volunteer with us.
