Community Service Opportunity Sept 27 and 28

Cora, of the Lincoln County Health Offices, needs your help.  Friday and Saturday, September 27 & 28, she is spearheading a mobile packing event at the Ruidoso Convention Center.

You may recall from an earlier post, Cora has been (and continues to!) collecting donations of hard-to-recycle products for the non-profit, Feed My Starving Children.  Both Charity Navigator and Guidestar have reports on the organization, if you are interested.

This is the Mobile Packing Event alluded to back on June 17th.  The short video below introduces you to what to expect.  It is also part of a longer playlist about Feed My Starving Children.  Please contact Cora to let her know how many volunteers (or how many hour(s) and which day(s)) you plan to attend.

Mobile Packing events need at least 500 volunteers to sign up for 2-hour shifts to pack at least 100,000 food packs (which is a lot of fun and not as much as it sounds).  So log in and sign up soon, to let Cora know it is possible.  If you wish to register as a family or group, great, and ballpark estimates are acceptable, not written in stone.  There are minimum child-to-adult ratios, but all ages are welcome.

Please visit the website for information about jewelry (probably don't wear optional items)allergies (such as soy, rice, or potatoes) or any other questions.  For a flyer to explain the program, check here. Seated jobs and stations are available, as are volunteer opportunities for blind.
