EVENTS HAPPENING IN YOUR AREA.
VOLUNTEER NEEDS – MARCH 20
Many of you have asked how you can help volunteer during this time – thank you!
To protect the health of our volunteers and staff, we have made changes to our warehouse volunteer program. We will have short session volunteer opportunities to help us repack food to distribute to people in need. This will enable us to reduce the number of volunteers at each shift, spread projects out and focus on essential projects at this time.
In an effort to ensure we follow social distancing and avoid large gatherings, we ask that only volunteers who have registered show up for a shift. We genuinely appreciate all support; however, we cannot accept drop-ins.
If you would like to sign up for one of our shorter shifts, please do so here. We will be offering up to six daily sorts that will help support our agencies and Mobile Market by packing bulk product and building emergency food boxes. Thank you for your support!
The health and safety of our volunteers, clients, partners, staff and entire community is paramount. In keeping with CDC guidance, we ask that adults 65 or older, people with serious underlying conditions or who are exhibiting symptoms of any illness, anyone who has traveled internationally, and/or is in any other high-risk group stay home at this time.

You may be familiar with the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday — those days when the focus often turns to shopping and bargains. However, there’s another day on the calendar that embodies the true spirit of the season, and one that we truly celebrate: Giving Tuesday. It just happened and is a day when people from all walks of life come together to give back. This year, it made a profound impact on our community, especially for people facing hunger.
We are grateful to Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) for their generosity. For the second year in a row, they extended support with an extraordinary $15,000 matching gift, inspiring people like you to pause the purchasing and press play on impact.
As we reflect on this year’s turkey drives, we want to share our gratitude. A community of volunteers, food pantries, agriculture partners and donors joined hands to distribute 6,800 Thanksgiving meals to neighbors in need in Spokane, the Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley. To each of you, we say thank you.
Thanksgiving, known for bringing together cherished ones over a festive meal, embodies not only the joy of togetherness but also serves as an occasion to express and spread gratitude. As we reflect on gratitude, we at Second Harvest want to send heartfelt thanks to the pantries and meal programs that tirelessly serve our communities.
