Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the Brigade. Your time, talent and treasure are an exceptionally large part of the reason the Brigades feeding program works so seamlessly.
We created a volunteer application because we found many of the necessary volunteer tasks are accomplished by too few people. We’d like to share the wealth and lighten the load for all our hard-working volunteers.
Many of the above tasks can be performed at home with a computer. And some tasks could involve creating a small team to work together to facilitate
Every task will involve as much training as the “trainees” want. We’d like to believe we could offer enough training that several people would be familiar with any given task.
We are so thankful for our wonderful volunteers!! This program would not be possible without the gift of their time, talent and occasionally their treasures!
Rotating, weekly teams of volunteers pack Backpacks (and during the pandemic instead packed "Take Home" Bags and deliver them to each elementary school. We use COVID-19 precautions, including masks, social-distancing, vaccinations and of course hand-washing We deliver over 2,000 pounds of food to the eight elementary schools served every week during the school year!
From arrival at our "pantry" (space donated by the Bremerton School District) to delivering backpacks to the schools, volunteers serve about two hours a week, once a month. We are always seeking out new volunteers in our community to help us grow and serve.
