SUBJECT: Fishline Market Reopening, Volunteers Urgently Needed

Good evening, all,

The Fishline Market team would like to inform our volunteers that we received notification that a volunteer tested positive for Covid-19, after working in our downstairs Market for several days. Fishline is taking immense precautions to ensure the safety of our volunteers, staff, and clients. We closed the Fishline campus on Wednesday, 1/20/21 for professional sanitization and cleaning. We have also begun to create daily shifts for volunteers to avoid volunteers working on overlapping days and/or within overlapping programs. Our market staff (Market Manager and Market Assistant) are taking precautions by getting tested for Covid-19 and will return to the market after receiving a negative result. 

Fishline will re-open tomorrow, Thursday, January 21, 2021, and we need your support to run the market. If you were not onsite on January 12th, 14th, and/or 19th, please review the dates below and let our Volunteer Manager know as soon as possible if you are willing and able to help us get food to our clients!

Volunteers are needed on the following days, THIS WEEK AND NEXT:

  • Thursday, 1/21
  • Friday, 1/22
  • Tuesday, 1/26
  • Thursday, 1/28

The following shifts are needed. Please visit our volunteer page for more information regarding the positions.

  • 4 volunteers from 8:00am – 11:30am to sort produce, bread, assemble market delivery bags
  • 4 volunteers from 11:45am – 4:15pm to distribute food at the door/assemble bags for the next day
  • 2 volunteers from 4:30pm – 6:00pm to assist with clean up and preparation for the next day’s food distribution (Thursday, 1/21 only)
  • 2 drivers, 6:30am – 8:30am
  • 3 market delivery drivers, 11:00am – 1:00pm

We know these are uncertain times, and we appreciate your continued support of our work. We could not serve the needs of the community without our volunteers. Please call or email our Volunteer Manager at 360-208-0102 to sign up for a volunteer shift and/or if you have any questions.
