SPECIAL REQUEST: HELP NEEDED!

Blessings, in partnership with the Community Food Bank, will be packing non-perishable items to feed 1,650 students for six weeks over two days. That’s 9,900 bags of food!  It will be a massive undertaking as the donated food is currently in boxes from surplus FEMA supplies. These boxes will allow the program to save an estimated $30,000 in food costs.

We will be breaking apart the pallets and repacking into bags so the participating children can transport them easily. We are seeking volunteers from the community to help with this packing. Any number of volunteers you may be able to provide would be welcome and appreciated. We will need assistance, opening boxes, packing bags, tying bags, pushing carts, counting bags, loading trucks, transporting bags and unloading bags at our pantries. We will need your help on the dates below:

  • Tuesday, April 3rd, 9-Noon– Packing for Elementary/Private Schools
  • Wednesday, April 4th, 9-Noon– Packing for Middle & High Schools
