NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
Our goal is to be the place where newer & longterm residents come together in support of feeding insecure neighbors in volunteer projects which aid members of our community struggling with economic change. Serving meals is only the beginning...
North Brooklyn Angels is 95% volunteer-powered! Everything from driving the truck to cooking the meals is done by amazing volunteers. We rely on people every day to help us cook & clean in the kitchen and to serve meals from the Angelmobile. In addition, we need help with admin tasks, fundraising, and outreach for volunteers and to promote the meals.
In order to be accessible to all our neighbors, we try to utilize all the ways to get people involved in our programs and signed up for volunteer shifts. We use our website, email, apps, social media messaging, text, phone, and in-person methods to get people linked into our program.
IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO PUT YOUR NAME ON THE VOLUNTEER EMAIL LIST BELOW. If you are interested in becoming a regular weekly volunteer, we encourage you to stop by the kitchen or Angelmobile and get to work!! We send out bi-weekly emails with updates to our volunteer schedule. You can contact us with questions about volunteering through any medium - phone, email, messaging, etc. Follow us on INSTAGRAM, like us on FACEBOOK, link with us on TWITTER. Besides fab photos, we use social media to post last minute & emergency volunteer needs. If you like to use apps, we use an app to schedule some shifts -- sign up with DEED in order to sign up for shifts from your phone. (This app is not just for Angel stuff but we actively post volunteer opportunities, especially our weekend cooking shifts via this app)
