We Need You Here!

Senior Food Bank Volunteering

Heritage Villas, CA, is an affordable mobile home park for seniors 55+. Jamboree’s Community Impact Group provides onsite programs and services designed for seniors. Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month we host an onsite food bank for our seniors. Seniors receive produce and pantry items. Volunteers help sort and deliver the food to the seniors doors at the property. This position may require heavy lifting. COVID-19 Guidelines: Jamboree’s top priority is to keep residents, volunteers, employees, and their families safe and healthy. Please be sure to bring and wear a face mask to your shift since supplies are limited. Make sure to take your temperature prior to coming to your shift. A fever is considered 100.4°F/38°C or higher. If you have a fever, are sick, or show signs of COVID-19, stay home and do not volunteer. Volunteers who are well but have been in the proximity of someone with COVID-19, or who is awaiting diagnosis may not volunteer.

ON-SITE NEED - Food Sorting/Packing

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Orange County Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) has been activated to support immediate volunteer needs, including hands-on and virtual opportunities during this disaster. Grandma’s House of Hope is committed to improving the quality of life for Orange County’s most vulnerable, underserved and socio-economically disadvantaged community members by providing housing, food and trauma-informed supportive services. GHH’s mission is to Empower the Invisible Populations of Orange County by targeting those who truly slip between the cracks of other programs, with a specific focus on serving those who are ineligible for or who have significant difficulty accessing other organizations’ services. We accomplish this through three core programs: GHH’s Rescued and Restored Housing Program, Nana’s Kidz program, and HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center program. More than 20 percent of children living in Orange County – roughly 153,490 kids – are living in households that are considered “food insecure.” 49% are eligible to receive free or reduced-price school meals. Many times, these children go to bed or to school hungry. Our Nana’s Kidz Food Distribution program helps lift that burden for 3,500 children each year. Due to COVID-19 Grandma's House of Hope is in need of volunteers to help pack food bags for our Nana's Kidz program. We urgently need volunteers to help pack food bags for our Nana's Kidz program. Now more than ever the children in our program are relying on us to help provide weekly meals to them. We have tripled the amount of food bags we are making in order to provide meals to the children. That is why we urgently need volunteers to help us! Hours are flexible! We will provide a mask and gloves if you do not have any!
