Volunteers needed for Resource Fairs & Fresh Produce Distribution

Every spring at our rental communities, Homeport hosts Resource Fairs to our residents where we invite community partners to the sites to provide information and resources to our residents of local services and resources that are available to them. In conjunction with these resource fairs, some of the sites will also be hosting a large fresh produce distribution to the residents where thousands of pounds of food from Mid-Ohio Food Bank are available for our residents to take home with them for their families.

We are looking for volunteers for the following events:

  • Thursday, May 30th - Pheasant Run Apartments - 2:00pm - 6:30pm
  • Wednesday, June 5th - Marsh Run Apartments - 2:00pm - 6:30pm

We also have two events that are strictly produce distribution:

  • Wednesday, May 22nd - Linden area - 2:00pm - 6:00pm
  • Friday, May 31st - South of Main - 2:00pm - 7:00pm

Volunteers are needed to assist with the setup of the event, welcoming our partners, welcoming residents, completing paperwork with residents receiving produce, distributing produce, breaking down boxes after produce has been distributed, doing activities with the children while the parents are receiving information and other similar tasks. Volunteers are also asked to stay and help with clean up after the event.

Please contact Rachel Ernst, Manager of Volunteer Services, if you are interested in volunteering for any of these events. She can be reached at rachel.ernst@homeportohio.org or at 614-545-4817.
