How COVID has Affected SOC Programs


  • COVID 19 has had a major effect on the way Sunrise Outreach does our daily business. All Staff, Volunteers, Visitors and Clients are required to wear masks in the facilities and when distributing food.
  • The Food Pantries are operating on a drive through model in all sites except Yakima which is a walk up model. All food boxes are prepackaged and distributed directly into the clients’ car or given to them outside when they walk up to the food bank.  Only volunteers are allowed inside the Food Pantries.
  • At the SOC Main office only volunteers and staff are allowed past the sandwich distribution table unless a guest has an appointment to meet with staff.
  • All clothing banks are closed and we are not accepting donations at this time.
