* Good Food Box Program Volunteers Needed
The Good Food Box Program has been supported by our club for about 9 months. We
stepped up when another group of volunteers could no longer help out.
We need consistent volunteers to be available on either the 3rd Tuesday or Wednesday of each month.
We require 2 pairs of volunteers per day, each with a vehicle to transport the boxes.
The boxes weigh about 10 lbs each when full. You could be delivering 5 or 15 boxes.
Timing depends on when the produce truck delivers. Arrive at 10:00 am in Welland, and finish about 1 - 2:00 pm.
Please let me know if you are available. If you are not sure if a monthly commitment is what you are ready to make, come out and see what you think.
We will need spares!
