Event Thank You: MLK Day Power Pack-a-Thon
We hosted two shifts for this year’s Power Pack-a-Thon which took place at our Mayerson Distribution Center located on Tennessee Avenue. We had a great time assembling over 5,000 Power Packs with the support of over 100 volunteers and a generous donation from Panera Bread. Thanks to all of you that came out to support the Power Pack program!
On the Horizon: Mark Your Calendars
Come one, come all, bring your family, friends, school or work group to volunteer at our Giving Fields! Volunteers of all ages and group sizes are welcome! Stay tuned for the season’s opening date sometime in late spring and volunteer needs.
Check Out Power Pack
Can you spare 15-20 minutes per week to support the Power Pack program? Do you shop at a local Kroger store? Volunteers are needed to assist with maintaining placards and tear coupons at 60 local Kroger stores. This is an ideal volunteer opportunity for students looking for community service hours, families with little ones, and those who work full time but want to get involved and volunteer. More information to come very soon!
