Volunteers are the Backbone of the Work We Do at Borderlands

Do you want to volunteer? We have an opportunity for everyone, whether you are on your own mission to give back, or your entire group wants to take part. Without volunteers Borderlands would not be able to do the work we do, so thank you in advance for your interest!

Currently we have the most need for volunteers at one of our weekly Borderlands' P.O.W.W.O.W. locations. Volunteers help with setting up our market locations, pre-boxing, traffic control, clean-up and other similar tasks. No prior experience is needed to jump in and become an amazing volunteer!

All volunteers who sign-up for a 3 hour shift will get a FREE produce box.

Volunteer Shifts Available

5:00am to 8:00am - DoorDash Box Makers

Several of our locations are participating in FREE delivery through DoorDash. Volunteers who sign-up for this shift will help pre-box orders to be picked up by DoorDash drivers. All boxes must be packed and ready for pick-up by 8:00am. Each location will need 5 volunteers to make these boxes

5:00am to 8:30am - 1st Shift

During the first shift volunteers will help set-up the location; taking boxes off of the pallets, setting up tables and sorting out perished produce. Depending on the style of the location, volunteers will either begin pre-boxing produce or displaying produce on the table for supporters. Some volunteers will assist with loading produce into supporter cars, or helping carry to their cars.

8:00am to 11:30am - 2nd Shift

Similar tasks as the first shift; volunteers will help sort produce either onto table for supporters, or directly into boxes to be loaded into supporter vehicles. This 2nd shift will also help with cleaning up the market location as we near the end.

Our mission is to supplement meals in Arizona communities with fresh nutritious rescued produce while reducing food waste and methane gas from landfills
