Volunteer with YPN at the Regional Food Bank
Monday, November 6, 2023 (5:00 PM - 6:30 PM) (EST)
The Young Professional Network (YPN) of the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce partners with local non-profits and community-based organizations to build a more resilient Capital Region through volunteerism and community impact.
Volunteers are needed at the Regional Food Bank Main Warehouse to support their produce sorting. Activities for the afternoon will include qualifying good product from bad, categorizing the product, and loading them into boxes and onto pallets to have them ready for fulfillment of partner agency orders.
Closed-toed shoes are required. Please dress comfortably for a warehouse setting.
