Woman to Woman Weekend Repack in Hunts Point

As part of Food Bank’s Woman to Woman campaign, volunteers will be helping to prepare donated feminine hygiene and personal care products to be distributed to women and girls in need. Nearly one million women and girls live in poverty in New York City which means having to make impossible choices between purchasing essentials, such as tampons and feminine care items, and paying for rent, food or utilities. Food Bank’s Woman to Woman campaign aims to provide access to feminine hygiene and personal care products to all New York City women and girls. Some important notes: -- This project will take place at our Warehouse at 355 Food Center Drive in Hunts Point in the Bronx (6 train to Hunts Point, then Bx6 to Food Center Drive/Hunts Point Market.) -- Volunteers age 5 and up are welcome. (NOTE: High school students may attend independently if they bring Food Bank's youth volunteer waiver completed by a parent or guardian. Email volunteer@foodbanknyc.org to request a copy of the youth waiver. Youth in middle or elementary school must be accompanied by at least one adult per five youth.) -- Please wear sturdy closed-toe shoes and refrain from wearing jewelry that may slip off while working. -- While the project is indoors, some areas of our Warehouse are not temperature-controlled. Please bring extra layers to stay comfortable throughout your shift. Questions? Email volunteer@foodbanknyc.org. We hope to see you in Hunts Point!
