Sign Up Genius Link: tinyurl.com/PoPFoodPantry08-22 (Coming Soon!) The Prince of Peace Food Pantry Distribution is deemed essential by Orange County and the City of Orlando and will happen. To minimize the risk of any transmission of the coronavirus, we will be vigilant in the practice of social distancing, seeking to limit any contact between those helping in the distribution and the guests who come. Gloves and masks will be provided. All guests will be instructed to stay in their cars for distribution and the food will be placed in their trunks. Those who walk up to the distribution will also practice social distancing. We will need additional volunteers for this distribution. All volunteers must be healthy, without preexisting conditions or risk factors which would make them susceptible to the coronavirus. Volunteer roles include taking bags of food to a guest's car, helping direct traffic in and out of our campus, and taking required information from guests upon arrival. If you are able to help, please RSVP through the Sign Up Genius link and sign up for a position. Please arrive by 7:30 so that instructions can be provided our doors open. Closed toe shoes are required as well as any red shirt to designate you as a volunteer. We promise that you will have a rewarding morning filled with putting food into the hands of those in need. If you have questions, please email [masked]. For more information visit our website: http://www.poporlando.com/event/foodpantry
Link: https://www.agiftforteaching.org/event/back-to-school-drive/ As the new school year begins, thousands of students will not have the essential tools they need to learn. The deep impact of COVID-19 in our community has forced local families to continue to make difficult decisions each day between food, utilities, and now, supplies for their children to be prepared to learn in the new school year. Regardless of where students are learning, equal access to school supplies impacts their self-esteem, interest in education, and class participation. Knowing this, teachers often purchase supplies out of their own pockets to help their students reach their fullest educational potential. You can make a difference. Help us help them! Host a Virtual Supply Drive, a Traditional Supply Drive, or Make A Donation to A Gift For Teaching, now through September 16th!

We are requiring face masks to be worn on-site to all volunteer shifts. Please bring and wear your own face mask if volunteering for an upcoming shift with us. Face Masks are required. Please bring and wear your own mask to your shift. Volunteer shifts are limited to no more than 20 volunteers at a time. Volunteers are then split into groups of 10 throughout the warehouse. Volunteers are being checked in by our front desk team instead of tablets. Volunteers are no longer writing their names on volunteer stickers. Volunteer orientations are no longer being held in the break room. This will help avoid large gatherings. There are hand sanitizing stations located throughout the facility. We are asking anyone that is sick, has been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, and/or anyone that has recently traveled to a CDC level 3 affected Country/Area to please refrain from volunteering. Come join the fun and help hungry neighbors at the same time as we sort and pack food for the needy of Central Florida. We will meet promptly at 1:00 for a short training and then get to work!
