Dear Interested Volunteer,
Thank you for inquiring about becoming a Dinner Donor! Our volunteer Dinner Donors play a crucial role in our organization and we are always seeking Dinner Donors to join our team. Today, more than ever!
Our emergency homeless shelters for women and children rely almost exclusively on caring community members like you to provide evening meals for shelter residents. This not only eases Building Futures’ budget, it’s also a great way for the community to show shelter residents that they care. Our Dinner Donors purchase, prepare, and deliver a balanced meal for 30 women and children and deliver it by 5pm on their designated day. You can do this on a regular basis (weekly, monthly or quarterly), or “one time” or whenever your schedule allows.
Here is a link to the Volunteer Packet for you to download. Included in the packet is a two-page form for you to fill out, indicating your preferred days of the week to donate meals. It also includes information about what is expected of our Dinner Donors and a confidentiality agreement. Once you have filled it out, email it to us and we will be in touch with a specific date to put you on the schedule. We will answer any questions you have about the meal itself and or drop off logistics.
Ana Maria Mahiri
Director of Development and Communications
