Sat, February 9th: North Helpline

Dear One Brick Volunteers: We are a small nonprofit that helps hundreds of community organizations each year. We run on a shoestring budget, but we have expenses like insurance, this website, and training materials. We also employ one person who makes sure the train stays on its track. We don't get any foundation or government grants. 30% of the budget is raised during the Annual Campaign going on right now. This year we need to raise $30,000 to keep One Brick afloat. Last year hundreds of volunteers donated $10 or $20 and it made a huge difference.

If you found One Brick useful this year, and you feel we are
making a difference, please consider making a donation.

Thank You

What we'll be doing

Volunteers will be performing various duties that include: food distribution, greeting, client check-in help, carrying groceries to cars, re-stocking food crates on the line, and sorting food. Volunteers may also assist with setting up and closing of the food bank.  Volunteers will learn about the great need for social service programs in their community and how families survive in difficult economic times.

What you should know

Volunteers must wear close-toed shoes and comfortable working clothes. Work is done in a warehouse, so dress warmly. Parking can be found one building south from our building on 33rd Ave NE. This parking lot is in front of several abandoned apartment buildings, next to the “Aqua Dive” building.

Organization: North Helpline

North Helpline is a non-profit organization that works to alleviate financial crisis for our community by providing basic human resources such as nutritious food, hygiene items, baby supplies, eviction prevention, utility shutoff prevention, and move-in support. Founded in 1989 by a community of citizens concerned about the welfare of their neighbors, North Helpline now serves over 2,500 unduplicated households each year and distributes over one million pounds of food through the our food bank. Since its inception, North Helpline has earned a reputation in the community as a place that serves the low-income and homeless population with dignity and respect.
