Store Greeter*

WHAT: Store Greeters encourage shoppers to give financial gifts and to purchase and donate food items. They are stationed at the entrances of King Soopers in Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette, and Gunbarrel (see map). This is a great opportunity for groups and families, as well as individuals!

WHEN: Shifts are 2.5 and 3 hours long, between 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6. Choose from 9:00-11:30 AM; 11:15 AM-2:00 PM; 1:45-4:30 PM; and 4:15-7:00 PM.

Driver

WHAT: Volunteer drivers transport food donations from King Soopers’ stores to a drop-off location.

WHEN: Shifts are 3 hours long, available Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6. Choose from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM; 1:30-4:30 PM; and 5:00-8:00 PM.

Truck Loading Assistant (New!)

WHAT: Help load food donations while stationed at our truck. We’re looking for strong volunteers (ages 16+) to unload bags of food from drivers’ cars and store greeters’ carts into our collection trucks. This requires walking up stairs and lifting heavy bags of canned and other non-perishable food items. Two King Soopers locations available: Hover Street in Longmont and South Boulder Road in Louisville.

WHEN: Shifts are 2-3 hours long, available Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6. Choose from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM; 12:45-3:45 PM; 3:30-6:30 PM, and 6:15-8:30 PM.

*If you’d like to reserve store greeter shifts for your corporate or community group, please call our volunteer department at (303) 591-0516. Volunteer sign-up is on a first come, first served basis. We are thrilled to receive such great support from local groups; due to the high volume of interest, we cannot guarantee that your desired shift and store location will be available.
