The Second Harvest Food Bank needs your help and we have received 15 volunteer slots for the South Bay Urban Professionals to help with a Food Sort at Second Harvest, San Jose on Saturday morning, 6/7/2014, at the Cypress Center.

Our group's size can not exceed 15.

TO maintain this limit we have created a Facebook event page.

If interested, you need to also RSVP on the facebook event page so that we can keep count. But first you need to join the FB group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SFSouthBayUrbanProfessionals/

There are 8 RSVP's already on Facebook. Therefore there are 7 spots left. Please only RSVP if the RSVP count has not reached 15 on the event page.

Additional info from the food bank:
All volunteers must bring completed and signed forms with them to the Food Bank. The form is at this link. http://www.shfb.org/docs/volunteer/vol_agreement.pdf

No shorts and no tank tops are permitted. Closed toe shoes and long pants are required. Please leave all valuables in the trunk of your cars. No purses or backpacks.

Please consider bringing donations of non-perishable food items. High protein items such as tuna and peanut butter are greatly appreciated or meals in a can like stew and soups. One can or one case does make a difference!

    I pleaded with SBUP to allow us bring everyone who RSVP'd come (beyond our 15 slots). And they've finally granted that request. Yay! So all the folks who were on the waiting list, you are now confirmed. The Volunteer event is this Saturday 6/7 at 9AM. Come early as doors close at 9:10. Remember to print and sign your disclaimer form. No shorts or tank tops (for safety). Only closed-toe shoes. Bring canned food donations if you can. Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Hi Tony! Unforunately, I just moved yesterday and will no longer be able to attend and help out this Saturday as I am still in boxes. Please open my spot for someone on the guestlist.

    Thank you!
