Help your neighbors. Even those you have not met. Yet.

Disaster Action Teams (where I started and still think it is among the more exciting things we do) provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.

CASA seeks volunteers to speak up for children in need

Hundreds of children in our community are in foster care because of abuse, neglect and/ or trauma. Lehigh County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is seeking dedicated volunteers to speak up for the needs of those children. Lehigh County CASA volunteers provide important work to build hope and opportunities for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. This volunteer opportunity is unlike any other volunteer experience. Lehigh County CASA volunteers are sworn officers of the court and are considered the “eyes and ears” of the Judge. CASA volunteers not only advocate for the best interests of the child in court, they also visit the child at home or in placement, monitor how the child is doing in school, observe visitations between the child and parents, and keep in regular contact with the child. The relationship they build gives a different perspective for the Judge to consider in each case, regarding what is in that child's best interests. For more information on how to get involved with Lehigh County CASA, contact the CASA office at (610) 782-3858 or email: CASA@lehighcounty.org.

Building a Community Garden at Catasaqua YMCA

Seeking skilled volunteers during Day of Caring to build a community garden to be constructed at our Greater Valley YMCA, Suburban North branch. The proposed area for building is 20 ft x 24 ft - which could potentially fit six (6) raised garden beds measuring 8 ft x 10 ft. This project would provide a benefit of food access to our community through a weekly “take one, share one” table at our branch to encourage Y members to eat healthy; we will partner with a local church who will prepare items ready to be cooked such as eggplant, zucchini and squash and they will be delivered to a local senior living facility in our community; we will engage our camp children and seniors to volunteer with planting, weeding and watering – which can reduce health conditions such as coronary disease, and type 2 diabetes and also prevent depression and promote mental health well-being.; volunteering in our garden will enable children and seniors alike to research, explore and develop a sense of pride in their environmental stewardship by making a difference in the community they live in.

Interior Painting at Haven House

The interior painting project would include repainting various clinical spaces at Haven House, a nonprofit outpatient mental health agency. Our building was renovated and painted in 2012 and with the heavy client use, over the last 7 years the therapy rooms and areas have become quite scratched, damaged, and worn. It is important that our building reflects to our clients that we want them to feel safe, welcome and very comfortable, and help reduce anxieties through the physical environment in the building. Repainting the rooms will help us to achieve this and maintain a really caring environment for our clients and the staff. Painting would include interior walls, and maybe some trim painting. We can provide the paint, paint tape, and floor covers. It would be helpful if volunteers could provide paintbrushes, rollers, disposable paint pans. If needed, we would purchase all supplies. We can discuss the items needed with volunteers interested in this project.

Cistern Consultant for Farm's original water source

Flint Hill Farm Educational Center dates to about 1850. The original source of water on the farm was through gathering water in the farm's three cisterns. One is near the barn, the other two are near the farm house. One of the cisterns is accessible through a well pump. The second was at the corner of the sun porch. During renovation, the access to that cistern was covered up. It is the desire of the Educational Center to resurrect that cistern and reconnect the drain pipes from the roof to it. The third cistern is supposedly under a wooden floor in what is now the tack room near the barn. Reclaiming these cisterns for their original purpose would be an excellent educational opportunity for students or a group in the community. The Educational Center, as a model of a sustainable farm to our local schools, would greatly benefit from having these again in working order. Individual or group would need to have knowledge of construction, use of tools, mason skills, and a willingness to be creative.

Cooking Matters: South Mountain Middle School 1260 Gresham St. Bethlehem, PA

Thank you for contacting us about volunteering. If you are passionate about healthy eating, cooking, and eliminating hunger through hands-on education, then you may be interested in volunteering with our program. Cooking Matters is a 6 week cooking and nutrition education course that empowers low income families to prepare healthy and affordable meals. Our volunteer commitment is 3 hours per week for 6 consecutive weeks. The volunteer team for each course consists of a culinary instructor, nutrition instructor, classroom manager, and a coordinator (a Second Harvest Food Bank employee). All volunteers go through a 2 hour nationally developed online training and a 1 hour in person training. Volunteers work out of a nationally developed curriculum. The curriculum includes goals, objectives, talking points, and recipes for each week. The curriculum is user friendly and practical for our volunteer base consisting of busy students and professionals, as well as retirees that are looking for a less demanding volunteer opportunity. Our curriculum is implemented with a facilitated dialogue style of teaching. This means we ask that you do not lecture but rather have participant led conversations around the weekly topics. All supplies including food, equipment, paper goods, cleaning supplies, and handouts are brought to the site by the coordinator. We ask volunteers to show up to class with their instructor guide, and ready to have fun with the participants and volunteer team! The class is 2 hours long and it takes 30 minutes to set up and break down. Each week the same 10-15 participants return to class. Class time is split into 3 main parts including cooking, nutrition, and meal time. We make 3-4 recipes during the cooking portion of class. We make enough for everyone to sample (not a full meal). Our courses are in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, and Bangor. We work in schools, faith- based organizations, food pantries, YMCA/YWCAs, boys and girls clubs, etc. Sometimes we have permission to work in industrial kitchens and other times we may be working on portable stove tops in a classroom. We have courses on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We have 5 curriculums including Cooking Matters for Kids (3rd-5th grades), Cooking Matters for Teens (middle school ages), Cooking Matters for Parents (18 and up), Cooking Matters for Adults (18 and up), and Cooking Matters for Families (parent child teams). Our course times vary and most commonly are from 10am-12pm, 1:00-3:00, 3:30-5:30, 3:15-5:15, 4:00-6:00, or 5:00-7:00.
