Urgent! Volunteers Needed this Saturday (We've filled the slots!)

By Mary Knighton-Brenner February 12, 2010

While many grocery stores have empty shelves and people struggle to get food during the snow storm, the Capital Area Food Bank will remain open this weekend. Your help is needed to help us pack food to distribute to over 3,000 children and seniors.
We will be open Saturday from 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 4pm to pack for our Weekend Bag and Senior Brown Bags programs. Our Senior Brown Bag program provides nearly 2,200 low-income seniors with food every month. The Weekend Bags program sends 5-7 pounds of shelf stable food home with children every Friday to supplement their family’s food for the weekend. Patricia Massey, a coordinator for the program, stated “children are especially in need since schools have been closed.”

It’s easy to help. Just email volunteer@capitalareafoodbank.org or call 202-526-5344, ext. 241 to sign up. You will receive a confirmation and directions upon receipt of your call or email. Thank you for your support!
