Volunteer Kit Packing Session – Okemos
January 9 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
The New Year is here and for Volunteer Kit Packing sessions this month there are many of us that have renewed our efforts to be healthy and fit. Improve your physical health by coming out to help pack weekend food kits at Okemos Community Church. At the same time you are doing something good for the children and the community! While you are participating at the kit packing session why not share your fitness and other goals with your fellow volunteers? If you are new to volunteering be sure to download the photo and liability release form, print it and fill it out to bring with you to the volunteer kit packing session. We will keep it on record and then all you need do is sign in the next time you join us to volunteer. Also be sure to fill out the volunteer tracking form to record your hours of service – this is very important to us at Weekend Survival Kits – major funders look at the kind of volunteer support an organization gets as part of their consideration about making a gift.
The kits packed at Okemos Community Church for Weekend Survival Kits help children in Lansing/East Lansing and the surrounding communities such as Dewitt and Williamston. We also pack up the monthly Weekday Survival Snack boxes which some of our schools have opted to receive. This additional program benefits each participating school by making sure there is a supply of healthy snacks for children unable to bring snacks from home or have simply forgotten their snacks. This is all part of our efforts to help children remove barriers to their academic success!
The Volunteer Packing Session – Okemos is very popular with volunteers. If you are organizing a group to attend and it is more than 10 people, please email Crew Leader Gina Brick firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know. Also, another great location to volunteer is at the Harry Hill Center just south of Lansing. This is coordinated by the Northwest Initiative and they would be so grateful for the help!
