Second Harvest Food Bank is partnering with the Mast General Store for their “Be a Sweetheart” candy promotion. For every pound of bulk candy they sell, Second Harvest will recieve a dollar.
Second Harvest needs volunteers on Saturday Feb. 9th from 11 am - 3 pm and on Sunday Feb. 10th from 1 pm - 5 pm. Volunteers will be inside the store to collect donations and answer any questions about Second Harvest. Once volunteers arrive for their shift, they will check in with the store manager to get set up.
As a favor/dessert for Second Harvest's event, No Empty Plates, each guest gets to take a cookie home. The cookies have a “story” attached to them about a food bank recipient. Our volunteers will cut out the stories, punch a hole in them and tie a story with string to each cookie.
Volunteering is fun, big time.
Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun.
You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do. Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.
Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can start something amazing. So why not apply to be a Big today. There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
