RUBY'S PANTRY VOLUNTEERS

We appreciate you!  Will we see you in on May 15th? 


Thank you, thank you! You have helped our distribution become very successful! We serve many bundles of food and we couldn't do this without you. You are a great group of people and are so thankful for all you do! We welcome more volunteers to join us as we serve our guests continuing under the guidelines we've been using.  Please consider volunteering in May and ask your friends or neighbors if they would like to help serve with you. 

Join us on Saturday, May 15.


We are looking for 50+ volunteers and have a health screening process that we are asking volunteers to go through.  If you are in the "at risk" category, please consider the risk and then decide if you want to help… we want you safe and healthy! Your health is important to us and so is the health of others. 


Please read these  guidelines:

● If you are sick or have any abnormal symptoms on Saturday, May 15 - PLEASE STAY

HOME!

● If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have a family member who was exposed within the last 10 days - PLEASE STAY HOME!

● We will have PPE and hand sanitizer available for you to use.

● We are requiring everyone wear a mask per the CDC recommendations. 

● There will be times due to the nature of the work that you will be working with others and social distancing will be more difficult.

● There are 3 time slots where we are asking people to serve. They are listed below.

● Be ready to work when you arrive and be prepared for a possible health screening as well.


Time slots where volunteers are needed:

● 6:00 – 7:00 am | Unload truck and sort pallets

● 6:30 - 7:30 am | Assemble boxes and set up tables with food

● 7:30 – 9:30 am | Distribution process of pre-loading bundles/shares and loading in vehicles and clean up. Or just come for all three... we are usually done and out by 10:00.
