US POSTAL SERVICE “STAMP OUT HUNGER” FOOD DRIVE – is just days away, read on to see how you can be part of this important fun event!
SATURDAY, MAY 11 – 11:00 AM until 5:30~ISH.
For those of you who’ve never experienced it, this is our single biggest food drive of the year.
Last year’s drive totaled 17,743 lbs of food to re-stock the food bank, which sustains us until the Holiday food drives begin each November.
In other words, IT’S AN IMPORTANT EVENT! What else is it, you ask?
It’s a BBQ (beer-soaked brats and all the fixings) It’s music! It’s fun!
And there are LOTS of jobs for everyone that we hope you can help us with – such as:
*Set-up & take-down teams *Route drivers ( 18 teams of 2) *Volunteer check-in table *Servers (of all the wonderful food!) *Unloaders (of the cars coming in filled with donations) *Weigh-table (to weigh and tally the lbs) *Sorters – LOTS of them *Storage organizers
DRIVERS: Start time: ~10:30am and 11:00 am. Teams of 2 follow postal routes and pick up food that donors have left by their mailboxes.
When their cars are full, they return to Fishline where teams onsite will unload, weigh & record the lbs they’ve collected. If necessary, those driver teams will go back out to finish the route they’ve been assigned.
ONSITE VOLUNTEERS: Choose from the jobs above. We’ll give you complete instructions, as well as your start-times. (Set-up usually begins ~9:00 am; take-down usually begins ~5:00 pm – to be confirmed.)
