Volunteer Packing Session – Evening – Howell
February 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Welcome to the February Volunteer Packing Session for Weekend Survival Kits! In honor of Valentine’s Day, this month we encourage you to be on the lookout for someone you know who needs a hug! We are calling it Hug a Helper month. Hugs can be a sign of love or affection and they can also be a thank you for your efforts; an I’m proud of you; a sorry about that; or just because! Since we have been hosting the volunteer packing sessions, we have noticed how the bonds of friendship continue to grow, especially among the regular volunteers. Our team members always leave the session feeling enriched by all the wonderful people like you who offer support for this very important mission. Consider yourself virtually hugged! Thank you for your service.
As a Weekend Survival Kits volunteer, there is no better option than to help pack weekend food kits for local school kids. Weekend Survival Kits is active in five counties, serving nearly 4000 school kids.This year our focus is two-fold, first – increasing the number of children participating in the schools we are currently serving by reaching out to school communities and the school staff to educate and engage. Our second focus is on our volunteers and enhancing their experience. Volunteering is a very important part of the model and makes it possible for us to continue to grow to meet the needs of children. Seriously, “Giving Hope to Hungry Kids” is our motto – will you help?
