Professional Development - OFB Leadership Roles Available

Grow your skills and help to feed thousands of Rochester families!

The Operation Food Basket volunteer program is in its 38th year. The majority of its volunteers are active, retired or former Xerox employees. Three leadership roles are available for the Operation Food Basket 2018 Campaign.

If interested, please email Gary Mroczek at!

Leadership Role 1

Two volunteers needed to work with Bernie Durman on the food packing and procurement and warehouse operations. These volunteers will work with Bernie and take on the roles of recruiting/coordinating/directing over 100 volunteers to support the food packing/delivery day, and support food procurement and delivery operations. (We purchase, pack and deliver over 65,000 pounds of food totaling $50,000). These two individuals will need to participate in our team meetings and take on responsibilities defined by Bernie over the next 3 months. I estimate their work would require an average of 3-4 hours of effort each week. Bernie can provide more detailed information as required.

Leadership Role 2

One volunteer needed to assume responsibility for interface with Xerox Webster warehouse management and staff to complete all required planning/actions for the food packing operation to be conducted. This individual will attend our team meetings and spend an average of 3-4 hours per week over the next 3 months. Larry Lloyd can provide details of the role to the new volunteer.
