Short-term Volunteer Opportunities
If assisting a committee is not your interest, there are areas we consistently need assistance:
* Fulfilling “needs requests” at the storage unit and prepare for distribution: Sometimes these are of an urgent nature, so flexibility and sometimes very little notice. You can be included on the email distribution when these requests arise. You can choose to accept or pass dependent on your schedule.
* Distribution: We get “needs requests” all over the Greater Seattle area. Pick-up the items from the storage unit (ideally, already pulled and packaged) in Bothell then deliver to the family. You can be included on the email distribution and be notified when these requests arise. You can choose to accept or pass dependent on location and your schedule.
* Tech/Backend Support– Assisting with the website (WordPress), editing, adding or removing content, inserting video/photography
