I love that we get to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a practical way, by preparing Food Bags for our friends at Carter-Lawrence Elementary School. Please check the times listed below to see if you can volunteer to set up, pack bags, and/or deliver bags.
If you've helped pack bags before, you know how nice it is to arrive at 6pm, ready to pack bags with the items sorted nicely in columns down the back foyer. We're able to do that because we have volunteers who do the prep work and move those cases of food into place ahead of time. (Mr. George is usually here at 4 pm, working with our Master's Commission Students to get things going.)
We know that most of our folks work regular business hours, but if you home-school, have a flexible schedule, need volunteer hours, or have youth or young adults in your household with free time after school, we could use your help!
Also, please note that if you want to help deliver food bags to the school, you will need to bring your driver's license or another photo id, as the office runs background checks on all of us before we're allowed in the building.
Packing: Wed, May 15
Delivery: Thursday, May 16
