General info and a sign-up sheet coming by October 2024

-Hospitality Organizers: Will be first to arrive each day and unlock the building. Get coffee and hot water started each day; purchase and bring up food each morning for volunteers.  Will be needed from about 7am - 8:30am M-Sa of distribution.

Fairgrounds Support and Clean-Up Committee Head:

This person is the contact with the Fairgrounds staff.  He/she is responsible for any organizational issues around the Fairgrounds.  He/she lets the Volunteer Coordinator know how many people are needed for Saturday/Sunday “wrap-up” - handling the return of any undistributed food items to either the stores for credit or to FISH for a receipted donation, packing up chairs and tables, etc. 


Volunteer Organizers:  We need some people to handle outreach at a number of places:  the domestic violence shelter, the Shelter Services on Oak Street, and our Fairgrounds Operations during distribution.  Some jobs involve meeting with shelter managers and registering clients; at the Fairgrounds you help make sure volunteers know where they're assigned and get them set up.
