HELP OUT: Basic Needs Distribution Event

Home Start has worked with the Diamond Education Excellence Partnership (D.E.E.P) to select schools within San Diego Unified School District's central region with students that could use additional support. Their drive through distribution provides items such as fuel cards, food cards, children's books, diapers, and more for Home Start clients and families in need. 

Volunteers are responsible for managing traffic and assisting with the completion of client questionnaires and paperwork. Duties may include checking in clients, confirming information, and distributing basic needs items to cars.
