We are a group of volunteers from the Utah Valley and Salt Lake Valley areas who pick up and deliver groceries for families and individuals who are unable to shop themselves. We especially seek to help those at risk from or affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to serving those who are able to purchase their groceries, we partner with local food pantries to deliver food boxes to those in need, and also purchase groceries for those we serve when funds are available. What you will do: After signing up on our website and getting trained, you watch/listen for a delivery-request notification on our Slack channel, claim a request that matches your location and schedule, receive details from the service coordinator, pick up and deliver the groceries to the recipient. Additional Information: Volunteers must be 18+ years old, healthy, sanitation conscious, and able to make deliveries in your own vehicle. http://www.utahcrisisfoodresponse.com

At Granite Park, we partner with the University of Utah Reading Clinic to deliver one-on-one tutoring to a number of students each day through the implementation of a structured curriculum. In order to serve more students, we are looking to recruit volunteers who can come on a consistent basis. Essentially, those interested in participating would be trained through our Reading Clinic Coordinator and would then be asked to volunteer twice a week (either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday) working with the same students each day to help improve literacy. The clinic happens as a part of afterschool programming, so the time frame would be 3:00-4:30 each day (volunteers could stay later and help until the end of program at 5:30) and will run until the middle of May.

We are hosting a volunteer open house so that potential volunteers can learn more about our program before they decide if they would like to commit. When: September 14th, 6:00-7:00 Where: 9035 S 700 E ste 100 Sandy, UT What: Join us in learning about what it would mean to volunteer for Easter Seals - Goodwill in our Peer Connections program and LEGO club! As a volunteer in the Peer Connections, you will be helping teens and young adults with high functioning autism and other social/communication disorders learn social and work skills. Volunteers will be paired with one student in the program and will support them in their weekly goal(s). Volunteers and their paired students are stationed in the science lab where they are demonstrating experiments or in the engineering lab where they will be teaching guests how to build projects such as paper airplanes or rubber band cars. As a volunteer for the LEGO club, you will be assisting elementary aged children with Autism and other social communication disorders in learning how to communicate effectively with their peers as they complete LEGO-based communication activities. This opportunity is great for individuals who are interested in special education, disabilities, at-risk youth, mentoring, and helping others develop confidence. The minimum age to volunteer is 16.
