There are other ways to help
Spread the word on social media
Many of you have been very responsive to our Social Media posts over the past several months...and have, understandably asked, can I volunteer? When is your next event? In February, we decided to explore some new directions as an organization -- then COVID19 came. Due to a clear need in our community, we partnered with Palm Beach Harvest. We have consistently provided (cooking) services to help prepare THOUSANDS of meals in these trying times. SO....Why all the same faces? Simply, in an effort to ensure food safety and comply with CDC guidelines, our Board members and their spouses have paired together in TEAMS to alternate cooking days. Health and safety of our families and our community has always been a priority! These small teams have prepped and cooked HUNDREDS of pounds of meat and help feed THOUSANDS of people. As for volunteers, we look forward to the day that we all get back together again! Please know we miss you. We look forward to seeing you again. If you feel like supporting our efforts through donations -- to offset costs -- it is always appreciated. Even in a pandemic, Big Heart Brigade is COMING TO THE RESCUE!
Here’s what you should expect when you volunteer:
Can students or others get community service hours?
Yes—students or others looking to receive community service hours need to bring filled out paperwork provided to them that will be signed once the volunteer has completed their work for the day.
Can I bring my pre-schooler?
We're happy to have family friendly shifts for young children ages 6–12, so long as they are accompanied by an adult. Strollers aren't permitted on site & children must be supervised at all times.
Do you feed the volunteers?
We don't provide food for volunteers as we've designed the shifts to be no longer than 4 hours long.
Should I bring my own water?
Water is provided, but you are welcome to bring your own as well.
Will I be working outside?
Yes—for day shifts, plan on sunscreen and a hat.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are a must. We cannot permit anyone onsite with sandals.
What will I be doing?
Various jobs will be assigned when you arrive. Please come with a spirit of cooperation and realize that even if the assigned job doesn’t seem like much, it's necessary to the success of the event.
Can I work more than one shift?
Yes—please sign up for all shifts that you wish to work.
Should I bring canned goods for donation?
No—this year we will not be collecting unwrapped Christmas toys/gifts or food.
Where will this take place?
This year we are serving multiple locations within our region. Please view the specific locations on our Sign-up.com page.
