START THE YEAR OFF HELPING OTHERS
The Glebe Community Service Committee proudly presents the “Start the New Year Off Helping Others” – a Fundraiser for Food for Others [Food for Others ], an award-winning nonprofit that fights hunger in our community by distributing donated food to NoVA residents and their kids.
Why: There are children in our community who do not have enough to eat during the weekends when they are without access to school feeding programs. Your family can help by providing “Power Packs.” (And it is as easy a clicking on an Amazon wish list – really – see below.)
What: A Power Pack is a bag that supplies children with two sets of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks of pre-selected non-perishable foods that are easy to make and consume over a weekend.
How: Three ways to Help – Consider any One or All Three!
1. Go to our Amazon Wish List [Amazon Wish List] and order from the food items listed there as soon as possible and no later than January 3rd. (We cannot accept individual donations of food for this fundraiser due to the need to have an exact balanced count of all of the items mentioned.)
2. And/or you can donate money to the Crowdrise page created to support this event. [Crowdrise] Every dollar makes a difference!
3. And/or your family can help assemble the Power Packs with other Glebers on Sunday, January 7th in the Glebe Multipurpose Room from 3-5 pm.
When: Now through Sunday, January 7th when Power Packs are assembled (we need lots of hands on 1/7).
Who: Glebe students and their families as well as friends in the community are welcome to donate and/or assemble Power Packs on January 7, 2018 (Kids 3 and up can also provide help with parental supervision.)
