Opportunity Details

Hunger & Homelessness

Age Minimum (with Adult): 18+, Minimum Age:18+

Sanitation Volunteers Needed at ROOTS Young Adult Shelter during COVID-19

Evening Sanitation Shift (6pm-8pm, everyday):

Volunteers routinely commit to just one day a week! (e.g You volunteer on Fridays from 6pm-8pm every week)

ROOTS is seeking additional volunteers during this critical time. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had over 50% of our volunteers temporarily step down. 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 operations tasks but most importantly volunteers will provide social support to the folks who stay here and build meaningful relationships. We are in great need of additional volunteers at this moment. You must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer with us.

All volunteers will be provided with gloves and strongly encouraged to wear masks.

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.

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.

Please wait... spinner
