Volunteer Kit Packing – Okemos Evening Session

November 20, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is a recent Volunteer Kit Packing Session - Okemos

November is a time to give thanks.  We are so grateful for the help and support for our Volunteer Kit Packing Session – Okemos to benefit the Weekend Survival Kits program. All month long we will be reflecting on how grateful we are to be blessed with so many volunteers (both new and regular) that is why we will take a few minutes to acknowledge some very special volunteers at each session.

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 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!
