HFO maintains a core team of over 350 delivery volunteers to deliver groceries and spend quality time with emotionally or physically isolated clientele. New volunteers come onboard and receive training that covers basic administrative information and cultural sensitivity, as well as recognizing signs of emotional or physical need in their clients.
HFO encourages young people to give back to their community by hosting monthly “Packing Nights.” Local school groups, youth groups, and community organizations (usually 60-80 kids at a time) volunteer to pack our countless grocery bags on a monthly rotation. Prior to the “packing frenzy,” students receive a brief training, which introduces them to the concepts of civic responsibility, youth philanthropy and the importance of community engagement. Our Youth Pack Night coordinator for Westchester County can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. For Putnam County, our Youth Pack Night coordinator can be reached at email@example.com.
We reinforce their volunteer efforts and encourage all of these young people to continue getting involved – to make a difference in their world by helping those in need. Through their experience with Hillside Food Outreach, each and every one of these young people has an opportunity to experience a very “real-world” example of giving back.
