As requested, here's a repeat opportunity to attend the Nicholas House Tour and Orientation. It turns out the tour and orientation are not required to volunteer with Nicholas House, but I highly recommend it! Their mission to empower families with the support and tools to become, and remain, self sufficient is inspiring! Nicholas House was recommended by one of our members, Thomas. (Thanks Thomas!!)

Did you know 1 in 5 Georgians are facing hunger today? Let's do something about it! Forget the gym - time to work out for the cause. Join the fight to end hunger with a high-energy session of food sorting at our Atlanta warehouse. As a Product Rescue Center volunteer, you'll sort, organize and pack recently donated food and personal care products for distribution to over 600 local partner agencies. The music is loud, the packing is fast-paced and the personal reward of making a difference can't be replaced. General Volunteer Guidelines: Dress Code: Closed-toe shoes are required. Sneakers or work boots are recommended. Volunteers not wearing closed-toe shoes will not be allowed to enter the warehouse/participate in the event. Age Requirements: Volunteers must be age 8 or older. All volunteers under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult (age 18 or older). Chaperone Requirements: Every volunteer group with children must follow the chaperone ratio: 1 adult per every 4 children (age 8-12) and 1 adult per every 8 youth (age 13 and older) *Chaperones are required to remain with underage volunteers at all times. Volunteer Eligiblity: PLEASE NOTE: Court mandated or "pre-court hearing" service hours are not available for this service shift or any Volunteer Services Department service shifts.
Description: Packing involves portioning food into individual containers and snack bags on our packing assembly line. With over 5,000 meals to package every day, your help is essential. This is a great project for individuals and families, and a great team-building exercise for school, business and church groups! Volunteers are expected to stay for the entirety of their scheduled shift. Dress Code: Tennis shoes or nonslip/slip resistant shoes are required; no heels. Absolutely no jewelry of any kind. This includes but is not limited to rings, bracelets, watches, step-trackers, necklaces, earrings, gauges, cartilage, nose, and permanent piercings. Long pants are required. No sleeveless shirts or tank stops. A short sleeved t-shirt is fine. (The packing area can be a little chilly and a light jacket is recommended.) No headphones, ear buds, or Bluetooth earpieces may be worn. Age Requirements For individuals or families of less than 5 people: Volunteers must be age 11 or older. All volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult for the entire volunteer shift. For groups or families of 5 or more people: When a group or family has 5 or more minors, the minors must be 16 years or older.
