WIE Seattle 2019 Volunteer Event - 02.27.19

WIE Seattle 2019 Volunteer Event
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 – from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Location:  Food Lifeline, 815 S 96th St., Seattle, WA 98108

Join Seattle Women in Environment (WIE) for an exciting volunteer opportunity this February! We have joined hands with Food Lifeline (https://foodlifeline.org/) to organize a Fresh Rescue/Sort & Pack Evening at their facility in Seattle. This is a hands-on work session, and a great opportunity to give back and play a small role in reducing hunger in Western Washington.

No external food is allowed in the warehouse due to Department of Health rules, so plan to have dinner before coming. Also, please arrive about 10 minutes early and be prepared to stay for the entire volunteer session (2.5 hours).

The event is free, but please do register by Friday, February 22, as any unregistered spots will be released to the waitlist 5 days before the scheduled session by Food Lifeline. Please note that there are only 20 spots available, so register only if you are sure to attend. Note that in addition to RSVP-ing using our WIE link, you need to register directly with Food Lifeline using the link provided below.

Important:

  • Pre-registration is required to volunteer.

  • Parking is limited at the facility – carpooling and public transit are highly encouraged.

  • You could be packing in the cooler or breaking a sweat in the warehouse, so make sure you dress in layers and wear closed-toe shoes – this is mandatory to enter the warehouse.

  • Volunteers must be able to stand for the full session and light lifting and some bending may be required.

  • Please bring a completed parent/guardian consent form for any youth volunteers (ages 6-17) – this form will be good for the 2019 calendar year. Note that all volunteers must be age 6+.

WIE's mission is to further professional development and opportunities for women in the environmental field.  WIE fosters relationships, mutual respect, and diversity among environmental professionals through networking, education, and mentoring.
