Volunteers needed for Harvest Box program

Vibrant Abbotsford is seeking volunteers for its Harvest Box and Bulk Buying Club program.

The program, which runs twice a month, enables people to purchase fresh produce, as well as non-perishable goods and household items, at up to half the cost of buying them in stores. Volunteers are needed on the second and last Thursdays of each month from 3 to 6:15 p.m. to co-ordinate the distribution days.

The responsibilities include: setting up and packing up the distribution site, helping to unload boxes off the delivery truck, distributing the boxes to clients, collecting cash orders for the next round, and answering questions about the program.

Training will take place this month, and the volunteers will start in September. Those interested are asked to contact Alison Homer at alison@vibrantabbotsford.ca or 778-880-8516.
