the organization of the process occurs rapidly. The night before, from the district social services, social workers cannot cope with the greatly increased workload, the request for help. Volunteers who have expressed a willingness to engage in carpooling, immediately United in the chat called “1000 sets”, where you negotiate with someone who is working on the same crew. The next morning, troops of volunteers loads into the car trunk box with the products (in sets cereals, pasta, canned goods, milk, sugar, flour, candy and so on) and travel around the locations. For the first day of the food sets were delivered for 230 locations.

volunteers work in social service and the opportunity to relax from the implementation of complex applications, and new experiences, and emotional discharge.

– I am equally as nice to run traditional applications for the purchase of food and medicines and to deal with deliveries of sets, – says Ksenia Cheremkhina, CEO-tour operator in regular life and a regular volunteer now. Orders is a quest and puzzles. To get the celery stalks, then buy smelt on the street, but at the same time manage to provide for her check. And conveying is always gratitude. Especially great when they bring the food set retired, which has already had the opportunity to meet, fulfilling his request, and see that he is doing well.

– it is important For us all. And execution of orders, and social service – it’s all who really need the many – continues to volunteer Anastasia Kindzerskaya. – I have one set from social services gave a reason (some of the recipients were in the country), I took it particularly needy grandma. She walks very badly, so I laid out for her products in separate packages, so she was easier to carry them to his room in a communal apartment… And the children of one large family, where we brought food, gave us their drawings. It is very nice!

delivery of food packages, though originally not part of the range of volunteer activities project #Myvesta, but now is a pretty big part of their job. A significant part of charity sets at odds from the warehouses of the Foundation of food “Rus”.

In April we with the help of volunteers distributed to the needy 45 thousand food packages, says Diana Capatina, head of the regional branch of the Fund in the northwestern Federal district. The recipients – mostly needy pensioners and families with children. The address list is formed on the bases of social services, as well as the applications which are received directly to the Foundation of our social pages. Only in the last two weeks we were approached with a request for assistance 3600 Petersburgers. We do not require documentary evidence of “need”, but in conversation with the applicant trying to figure out if he needs help and what kind. It is important that people get the right products you need. So for example, we are very happy that I can now distribute large sets with tomatoes and cucumbers – the vegetables were provided by one agricultural holding. And today we received two trucks of baby food – cereal and purees. Accordingly, in the near future will help families with young children.
