Category: Gulf Coast East District

Join the TOTA members of the Gulf Coast East District for socializing and volunteering at the Houston Food Bank

Date: October 15, 2022
Time: ​Start 8am - 12pm 
Where: Houston Food Bank. 505 Portwall St., Houston, Texas 77029

Purpose: Engage in community volunteerism as OT practitioners demonstrating commitment for individuals to be able to explore their occupations. Food insecurity is seen by many in the community we serve as OT practitioners, and this is a great way to give back to the Greater Houston community by showing our commitment to decreasing food insecurities. 

Audience: OT/OTA students,  and practitioners (family members will be considered at a later date)

Parking: If space permits, you can park in front of the building. If there is a huge volunteer turnout, you will be directed to park at the back of the building.

Group Leader: Aichen Chih (GCED Legislative & Political Affairs Chair)
Tasks: Varies with the makeup volunteers for shift. Most of the projects at the warehouse involve inspecting, sorting, and repackaging of donated food items for community distribution.

• Closed-toed shoes, long pants (preferred), T-shirt with sleeves (wear an OT shirt), and work gloves if desired. Dress in layers so you will be comfortable during your shift.
• No personal belongings are allowed inside the facility due to a limited number of lockers.
• Volunteers MUST be at least 6 years old and supervised by a parent or guardian throughout the shift.
• All volunteers under the age of 18 also need a completed Youth Volunteer Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian.
A copy of the form can be downloaded by clicking the RESOURCES tab on your Volunteer Profile page.
