Volunteering: Food Shelf Holiday Program

Are you interested in participating in a fun service project that brightens the holidays for children in our community? GRAF members will once again be joining other volunteer groups to help pack the toys that accompany food boxes distributed by the Second Harvest Food Shelf in December.

It’s fun and doesn’t require any special skills or experience. Ellen Christmas, the program coordinator for Second Harvest, explains how it works before we get started. The annual project draws community-minded persons of all ages in a spirit of goodwill and holiday cheer. It usually takes about one-and-a-half hours. Last year our GRAF volunteers met for lunch afterwards; hopefully there will be interest in doing that again.

The event will be hosted by Zion Lutheran Church in Grand Rapids again this year. It’s on Saturday, Dec. 12th at 9:00a.m. Please join us if you can! I put it on the Meetup site, but you don’t have to RSVP–you can just show up.

If you have questions, please e-mail or call Amy (#259-1476 or fsm.gr.mn@gmail.com). Hope to see you there!
