Wednesday, January 27th, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, we will be volunteering at Harvesters in lieu of our Wednesday Night Service. If you can attend, please let Tracy know. All volunteers must meet before 6:00PM at Harvesters (3801 Topping Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64129) or arrange your own carpool. Also, you must wear closed-toed shoes and be dressed for warehouse labor. We’ve had a lot of fun at this volunteer activity in the past, and I look forward to another opportunity to fellowship and help our community.
Also, we will be collecting in-kind and monetary donations to take with us that Wednesday. There are 3 ways to give: 1) donate online at http://colberncofchrist.harvestersvfd.org/, 2) write a check payable to Harvesters – Community Food Network, or 3) bring in-kind donations to church or Harvesters. The most needed in-kind donations are: Canned vegetables, Canned fruit, Boxed meals – (Hamburger Helper, Pasta Roni, and Mac & Cheese), Canned meat/tuna, Peanut butter & jelly (no glass jars), Canned soup, Cereal – hot and cold, Soap, Shampoo, Deodorant, and Toilet Paper.
Harvester’s advertises, “If every volunteer brought just one can of food when they came to volunteer, we could provide an additional 4,166 meals per month.” So I encourage everyone to give at least one can of food to this drive.
Hope to see you there!!
