The Skyline College Drive-Thru Community Market has distributed over 1.2 million pounds of free groceries since we launched in September 2020, but we couldn’t do it without student volunteer support. Help us recruit volunteers by sharing these details with your students!
Why: Of course, volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, but it is also a great way to get exercise while also safely spending time with friends and family in the fresh air.
Who: We are recruiting students, but we encourage you to forward this information to anyone who might be interested. We welcome small groups, and volunteers can pick up free groceries as well!
When: Every Wednesday, 10:00am-1:00pm. We are currently recruiting volunteers for May, June, July, and August.
Where: Volunteers enter Skyline College through the Sharp Park Rd entrance and follow signs to Parking Lot J.
How: Volunteers must pre-register here. Sign up for one event or for the whole summer.
Duties: Distributing groceries, traffic flow, or registering families (Spanish speakers are definitely needed and appreciated).
Safety: Volunteers must wear gloves (provided by the District), masks (provided by the volunteer) and maintain safe social distancing. Participants will remain in their vehicles.
