Costumed Volunteers Needed

We need 25 volunteers to help make the Oct. 31 food distribution happen! Can we count on you?

Volunteers are needed from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to:
– Direct traffic
– Load food boxes into waiting cars (must be able to lift 20-30 pounds)
– Move food boxes from pallets to the car line (must be able to lift 20-30 pounds)
