Today, over 30 volunteers came from US Cellular to give us a hand in the warehouse. The warehouse was running like a well-oiled machine!
Many of the volunteers are busily working away at sorting the food we received from Stamp Out Hunger, last week. The other volunteers are dividing the sorted food into variety boxes. Today they’ll make 100 variety boxes for our Feed the Kids Project.
Feed the Kids provides groceries for the low-income families of the children in our Children’s Birthday Project. The project ensures they’re able to eat nutritiously during the summer, since they cannot receive school lunches during this time. Each family receives at least four 25 lb. boxes of non-perishables, a variety of fresh breads, 7 varieties of frozen meat, 9 varieties of fresh fruits, 9 varieties of fresh vegetables, and snacks tailored to kids’ tastes, totaling 250 lbs. per month, or 750 lbs. for the summer.
We are so thankful US Cellular came in to help us with this huge project!
