Davis Community Meals seeks volunteers

By
From page A4 | October 14, 2012 |

Davis Community Meals — a nonprofit, nondenominational organization whose mission is to provide low-income and homeless individuals and families with housing, food and human services to help them rebuild their lives — is recruiting volunteer help.

The agency provides three free meals a week, a resource center, emergency shelter and transitional housing programs, a permanent supportive housing program and a cold weather shelter.

DCM provides housing to more than 80 men, women and children each night year-round and provides meals and resource center services to more than 250 people each week.

Head cooks are needed for DCM’s Tuesday dinners and Saturday lunches. Volunteers must be comfortable cooking for large groups, flexible and able to direct other volunteers. Training is provided.

“We ask that you commit to volunteering one Tuesday or Saturday a month,” a news release said. “On Tuesday, you must be available on Tuesday mornings and late afternoons and on Saturdays, it is morning only.”

DCM also needs a volunteer to pick up food and canned goods each month from the Food Bank of Yolo County in Woodland. The morning duty, generally in the last week of the month, involves dropping items off at one to three locations in Davis. The volunteer should have a truck or SUV and be able to lift 50 to 60 pounds, alone or with an assistant.

A volunteer also is needed to do minor electrical, plumbing and carpentry repairs and maintenance at DCM’s various facilities in Davis. The work would be on an as-needed basis, about four to six hours a month.

Lastly, DCM seeks a volunteer to work in its administration office performing data entry, filing and other office tasks for one to three hours each week. Experience with bookkeeping and accounts payable is desired.

For more information, contact Harmony at volunteersatdcm@sbcglobal.net or 530-220-4089 or Bill at billpride-dcm@sbcglobal.net or 530-746-4008.
