School Year Program Weekend Sacks Packing

Volunteers are needed to pack weekend sacks of food. Packing takes place on Wednesdays at 6pm at the GBP Headquarters located inside the New Hope Community Church (16800 W 9th Ave, Golden, CO 80401) at the corner of 9th and Salvia, and takes less than an hour. Each packing session is capped at 9 volunteers due to the limited space available for packing.

Three times a year we also do a double packing to help the kids through the school holidays. Therefore, additional packing will take place at 6pm on a Monday prior to these holidays. Please sign up to volunteer using our Golden Backpack Program app. Select “Packing” under the School Year Backpack Program in the Sign Up tab of the app to see the specific dates we will be packing sacks and how many open volunteer spots are available for each date.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

We utilize volunteers to help with food deliveries for our School Year Program and our Fresh Food Co-op, as well as to provide other help in running the Co-op. These opportunities require a recurring volunteer commitment and special training. Please contact us for more information.
