On Monday, more than 400 kids and their families rolled up their sleeves and packed, sorted and labeled food to help provide for those in need as part of Bring Your Child to Serve Day, in honor of MLK Day. By the time the last volunteer shift ended, 25,830 pounds of food was packed—the equivalent of 19,869 meals!
It was inspiring to see so many youth excited about giving back to their community and helping others. Thank you to all who volunteered, and we hope to see you again soon! We’d also like to thank our sponsor Bremer Bank for making the day possible.
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.
