Ruby's Pantry Volunteer RSVP
***IMPORTANT FEBRUARY DISTRIBUTION INFORMATION***
Distribution Date: Thursday, February 11, 2021 (Drive-Thru Distribution)
Time: Drive Thru Food Line opens promptly at 4:30pm and will be closing at 6:00pm, or earlier, if we are out of shares prior. Please enter on the East entrance to off of Hwy K. The line will not open BEFORE 4:30pm. Please enter on the East entrance to Grace Christian Church, off of Hwy K. Vehicles will not be permitted to park on either side of Hwy K, or at the Mausoleum, or behind our volunteers' vehicles on 4th Street. If you choose to come early and park at Holy Family Catholic Church you will not be guaranteed a place in line. Our team of traffic volunteers will not be held responsible or be in charge of guests or their placement in line who decide to come earlier than 4:30pm. Once our parking lot opens at 4:30pm, our line is first come, first-served. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We ask for your patience and understanding. The line will probably run at a slower pace due to the Covid health precautions our volunteers have to take inside the building while filling guests' carts with food.
Location: Grace Christian Church, 1596 Fourth St., Fond du Lac, on the corner of Fourth Street and Highway K. Grace Christian Church’s parking lot and building facilities will be closed to the public.
Online Pre-Registration/Fast Track Reservation: Online Pre-registration is now available: https://rubyspantry.org/location/71! Time slots open the day after our distribution, and close at 3pm the day before our distribution, or as soon as it's filled up. If you pre-register please come at the specified time slot you selected. Do not come early to the distribution. Your food is set aside and will be ready for you at your time slot.
If you have a Ruby's certificate, you can use it to pre-register for a share. Use the drop down menu and input the certificate number. If you are not pre-registering and would like to use a certificate, please print it out and bring it to the distribution or be able to pull up the certificate number from the e-mail on your phone.
What To Expect: Two food shares maximum PER VEHICLE. Please only have driver and other passenger donating for food share in vehicle with no extra passengers. Please remain in vehicle at all times. Vehicle’s trunk must be EMPTY. Due to the amount of food it's a good idea to have the back seat empty as well. Food shares will be pre-bagged and loaded in trunk by our volunteers.
Food List: We will try to post a list of food items on the Fond du Lac Ruby’s Pop-Up Pantry Facebook page 24-48 hours before the distribution.
Donation: $20 cash donation only per food share. (1 share equals 1 grocery cart of food.)
Volunteers: We are in need of volunteers at least 18 years of age who are physically capable of consistently lifting 10-20 lbs., being on their feet, bending, and moving at a quick pace. If you are interested in volunteering please go to www.rubyspantry.org and fill out a volunteer application. Masks and gloves are required and will be provided that evening.
The way the new website is set up, all applicants will need to have their own individual e-mail address, not share a family e-mail address to apply. (Example: if a husband and wife share the same e-mail, each will need their own e-mail address to apply; if a teen shares a family e-mail address, the teen will need their own e-mail address, not the family’s e-mail address to apply). If a shared e-mail address is used during the application, the application will not process, even though it may look like it did. The applicant will then be notified to fill out another application. We appreciate your patience and cooperation with Ruby’s new process. We apologize if you tried to register previously and Ruby’s website was down. It should be up and running now.
Applications and background checks must be approved BEFORE the night of the distribution in order for an applicant to volunteer. Due to needing a select number of volunteers for this distribution, we will be contacting the number of volunteers we need and will not be accepting any new volunteers on-site, the night of the distribution, at this time.
Please email email@example.com if you have further questions or concerns.
