SHSG needs volunteers to staff a special COVID-19 response project. Many metro areas have a 211 information line that citizens can call to get referrals for assistance. South Georgians don’t have access to that type of service, but Second Harvest is stepping up to help by establishing a temporary referral line.
We are transforming our lobby into a call center to field questions from folks in need in the communities we serve. Our volunteers will refer them to the appropriate group for help. Whether they need food, rental assistance, mental health services, etc., we will point them in the right direction.
This center will be open Monday – Thursday from 8 am – 4 pm until further notice. We are seeking 6-12 volunteers every week to help with this project. The ideal volunteers will have great communication skills, knowledge of the area, and be able to commit to at least one week of half or whole day shifts. Social workers, teachers, and recent college graduates are examples of some good fits for this project. Volunteers must be able to pass a basic medical screening. We will provide lunch each day.
