Pack Care Packages with Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement

Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House is a community-based nonprofit organization serving youth, adults, seniors, and families of Western Queens. It offers comprehensive educational, cultural, recreational, and social services to approximately 10,000 people every year. Jacob Riis Settlement’s mission is to help community residents realize their greatest potential and achieve economic self-sufficiency. Due to the current climate, we have developed a meal service program that will support over 200 hundred community members. We need volunteers who can pack packaged dry goods, help set and clean up, and are comfortable lifting up to 30lbs of produce. All packages will be delivered to homebound families who reside in Long Island City and Queensbridge.
