PRLog - April 22, 2012 - VENICE, Fla. -- April has begun the migration North for many of our Volunteer staff. Drivers, Substitute Drivers and Office personnel are taking off for other destinations and we are facing our "Summertime Volunteer Exodus". Can you help us with a few hours each week? We could really use your help until October or November when many helpers return.
Peter Norrman, Transportation Officer
Drivers deliver from 7 to 15 meals between the hours of 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on one scheduled day each week, Monday thru Saturday.
Substitute Drivers are on hand to step in when a regular Driver is unable to perform due to illness or vacation.
Office Managers help to set up the Meal distribution system on one scheduled day each week, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., Monday thru Saturday.
Data Entry Volunteers typically assist on the computer to update our information database and work for a few hours once or twice weekly.
Every Volunteer is important to our Venice operation. Every Volunteer helps to make this outreach program function successfully.
