Thanks to all who participated in yesterday’s KARE 11 Serving with Sunrise volunteer event at our Golden Valley location. More than 50 volunteers showed up on another frigid morning to join Kim, Tim, Sven and the rest of the Sunrise team to help pack more than 3,000 pounds of pasta—enough to provide more than 2,300 meals to those needing food in our community. Now that’s a great way to spend a morning!
As with all of our volunteer events, we were humbled and inspired by the stories we heard—from the father/daughter duo who traveled more than 80 miles to help pack food, to those spur-of-the-moment volunteers who walked through our doors at the last minute wanting to help out.
As the need for food assistance continues to increase in our community, the generous support of our partners and volunteers are crucial. Sincere thanks to the KARE 11 Sunrise team for their generosity and support of our hunger relief efforts.
And remember, the need for volunteers and donations is year-round at Second Harvest Heartland. Please check out our website or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to hear about opportunities to continue to help.
