We are in the initial stages of preparing to set up a large scale food packing program through our Centers for Food Action and the Community Food Bank and Bergen County government. I going to test initiatives to get out a major request for volunteer packers at some point in the next few days.
Has anyone already set up an initiative for COVID - 19?
If so, I would love to see or hear what you have done so far.
Hey Debbie -
We have an initiative and a resource page for COVID-19.
The initiative is specifically for our food distribution program https://volunteer.loveoutloudws.com/need/?need_id=508767&need_init_id=3011
The resource page https://volunteer.loveoutloudws.com/covid/ is where we are posting the late-breaking needs - we're finding many of our community partners to not have time to update their profiles among the work they're doing - we're helping (and suggesting to those with time) to post COVID specific updates on their profiles "what we do" in bold red - and to send us their needs to post here. It's been incredibly successful for our community and helps us make sure we're getting real-time (or as much as possible) information to the many volunteers and leaders working on this.
Thank you Liz. Keep well and safe. I will keep posting as our program moves forward. So nice to be able to share.
