Volunteer Kit Packing – Okemos Evening Session
October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
At our Volunteer Kit Packing Sessions for October we are breaking out the Cider and Doughnuts to enhance your volunteer experience! At our first October packing session show your sports-team spirit by wearing articles of clothing or hats that show your team spirit. (This is entirely optional – but it could be super fun to divide the teams up at different tables and create a little friendly competition. Don’t have any team spirit? You just might develop some more spirit for Team Weekend Survival Kits when you learn what is in-store for you.
Remember, there are all sorts of tasks that you can take on at a packing session – pick the one that is right for your fitness or skill level. Ever wonder what happens to those hundreds of kits once they are tied up in the Delta Dental bags? With the help of our hosts, Okemos Community Church, the kits are staged for pick-up and delivery to the participating schools being served by this packing session center. There are volunteers who have made a commitment throughout the year to be a school liaison. This is generally a two times per month commitment during the school year. Interested? Email, team member Gina Brick at Gina@weekendsurvivalkits.org
First time joining in on a packing session? Be sure to stop at our Volunteer page to fill out a volunteer interest and availability form…based on that information we will customize our messages to you. Also, be sure to download the Photo and Liability Release form – fill it out and bring it with you. (Printer ran out of ink? No, worries – we will have some copies available.)
Note: The evening OCC Packing Sessions are very popular with families. If you are thinking of bring a group of more than 10 Volunteers please coordinate with Gina via email so we can plan accordingly.
