Projects That Need Some Love

Sort and Serve at the Cleveland Food Bank

HandsOn volunteers help sort and repack donated and purchased food that is later distributed to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. Volunteers primarily work sorting donated mixed perishable items and packaged meat from the cooler room. Modifications to the project may be made to accommodate volunteers with limited mobility. Please bring a sweater or other warm clothing items with you just in case - you may be asked to work in the cooler room. Please Note during COVID-19 Volunteer shifts: Volunteers will be working in the repack area, working on Senior Boxes, Backpack Program or Emergency Food Boxes. The mission of the Greater Cleveland Foodbank is to alleviate hunger by providing food and support to community organizations that feed the hungry. Age Limits: This project is for volunteers age 16 and up. All volunteers under 18 must fill out and bring a youth waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Things to remember: Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes and if possible leave valuables in your vehicle. Gloves and jackets are provided if we work in the cooler area, but bring a sweater or other warm clothing items for an extra layer of warmth. This project may require heavy lifting. Where to Meet Your Leader: Meet in the main lobby of the Food Bank. Special Driving Instructions: Coming off the highway, the Foodbank is in the 2nd building (white) on right after E. 152nd St. light. Parking is available in the lot out front.

Worming Through the Stacks at Kids' Book Bank

Volunteers will sort and box children's books by age and reading material. Books sorted at the Cleveland Kids' Book Bank will then be distributed throughout the Cleveland area through schools, non-profit organizations and Little Free Libraries. The mission of the Kids' Book Bank is to foster literacy and a love of reading by providing free books to children in need. Since 2013 the Kids' Book Bank has placed thousands of books in the hands of children in need through 60 Little Free Libraries in Cleveland neighborhoods. In November 2015 the Kids' Book Bank developed a unique partnership with online bookseller Discover Books that enables them to bring hundreds of thousands of free children's books to Cleveland - books that would have been otherwise recycled. Things to remember: Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and if possible leave valuables in your vehicle. Age Limits: This project is for volunteers age 16 and up. All volunteers under 18 must fill out and bring a youth waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Special Driving Instructions: Parking is available off of Perkins Ave. Continue to the far end of the parking lot to Bay Door B. Call the Kids' Book Bank at the door to enter the building and continue straight down the hall to enter the warehouse.
