Volunteer Opportunities 

Glendale Elementary School District Food Distributions

Every month, Glendale Elementary School District hold food distributions where they hand out 350+ food boxes to the community. The need for food boxes has increased steadily along with the need for volunteer support to get food to families effectively. There are two opportunities to help with each distribution; one day would be the packing of the food boxes and the following day would be handling the boxes out to the community. Below are the dates for the food distributions. 10-15 volunteers are need for each volunteer opportunity. To register, please complete the form.
