If you have a few hours to spare on two consecutive Saturday afternoons in May, Community Food Share can use your help. You’ll be helping to ensure the success of the Community Food Share’s Annual Fill-A-Bag Food Drive. If you’re a student looking for volunteer hours, round up a few friends and an adult driver and help deliver bags on May 7 and pick them up again on May 14. Service clubs, church organizations, and individual families can help us to ensure that no person or family in our community goes hungry this summer.
The concept is simple: deliver an empty grocery bag on May 7 to homes throughout villages in Dundas and Stormont Counties. Then go back a week later to collect the filled bags of non-perishable food items that residents have left at the front of their home, and deliver them to Community Food Share’s locations in Morrisburg or Winchester.
We are looking for teams of volunteers to assist us with distribution and pickup on an assigned route starting at 1 pm on both days.
If you are available to assist on either or both days, please contact our Team Leader at 613-898-0781 or email: [email protected].
