|Every Mother's Day weekend the postal carriers have a food drive. This is where Loving Hands gets most of their food to distribute throughout the year.
Saturday, May 11 Loving Hands will have 16 straight trucks going to various post offices to collect food and return it to the food warehouse. This will consist of well over 10,000 cans of food. The cans then need to be sorted into categories (soups, green vegetables, corn, etc).
You have two opportunities to help:
We are still in need of at least 4 drivers on May 11 to drive one of the rented straight trucks to a post office and pick up the food. It will probably be from around 4pm - 10pm with coming to orientation around 11am at the food bank.
Help sort cans! For the 2 weeks after collection we will be scheduling times to come in and sort cans. As it get closer I will be posting dates and times on the board. It will be some evenings and Saturday, May 18 and if needed Saturday, May 25.
* I have been involved in sorting cans for 7 years. This is a great family service project. We are asking that kids younger than 5 not participate. Any child 5 or older is welcome to come and help. There is no childcare available.
For more information about the food bank, check out their website at aurorafoodbank.org
If you can't help but would like to help financially that would be fantastic. Loving Hands has run out of certain foods and has been buying much of their food to get them by until the food drive. Any financial help would be greatly appreciated.
