Food Pantry Volunteer

Radiant Health Centers (Formerly AIDS Services Foundation) is committed to providing quality care, education and advocacy to men, women and children in Orange County affected by HIV disease. We serve more than 1300 Orange County residents living with HIV by providing services such as food pantry, transportation, housing, emergency financial assistance, family programs, mental health counseling, support groups, and HIV education and prevention services. Food Pantry Volunteers are needed to package food items for our clients who are living with HIV/AIDS, low income, and disabled. Other duties include stocking shelves, de-bulking dry foods, calling delivery clients, verifying authorizations, entering data into client track, and maintaining client files. Our food pantry operates Monday through Friday. Although most of our food Pantry volunteers come in once a week to volunteer, the schedule is flexible. A current TB Test (6 months for dermal; 12 months for chest x-ray) is to be on file for all our volunteers. Dress code is casual but closed toe shoes are required.

EVC Trainings 2019

The OneOC Emergency Volunteer Center is a program that supports emergency response officials throughout Orange County by engaging and safely deploying spontaneous volunteers to respond to critical needs and/or long term recovery. The devastating nature of disasters finds us at our most compassionate and spontaneous as we look for ways to be involved in disaster response and recovery. Orange County residents have always been moved to support their local communities in times of need, even showing up on the front lines or in places where victims are being treated – which can be ineffective and dangerous at times.

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

The Festival of Books began in 1996 with a simple goal: Bring together the people who create books and the people who love to read them. The Festival was an immediate success and has become Southern California's major literary event, now in its 24th year! The 2019 Festival will be held on Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 at the University of Southern California and we would love to have you join us as a volunteer. Last year over 150,000 people attended the Festival, which featured more than a hundred ticketed author events, children’s storytelling, poetry readings, book signings and more than 400 exhibitor booths. The Festival’s success has been due in part to the generous participation of volunteers who welcomed attendees, assisted with registration, staffed author events, supervised book signings and much more. Time Commitment: Volunteers sign up for one or more 3-4 hour shifts on one or both days. Requirements: The majority of volunteer activities require being on your feet for most of your shift. Please wear comfortable shoes and khaki or beige pants or shorts. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. (However, volunteers aged 15-17 can attend if they are volunteering along side a parent or guardian). **You cannot bring children under the age of 15 with you during your shift. Benefits: Volunteers will receive free parking, shuttle service from the parking lot and lunch. We will provide t-shirts for volunteers to wear and keep after the event. *Please sign up as soon as possible as space fills up quickly and the final deadline for pre-registering as a volunteer is April 1, 2019 After you express interest in this opportunity, we will send you further instructions on how to complete your volunteer registration. *This project is created, organized and managed by our nonprofit partner.
