Harvesters Food Sort

This is a great way to give back to the community as Harvesters is the area's only food bank. Their network includes over 620 nonprofit agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes, etc.  http://harvesters.org

Space has been reserved for us from 6 to 8 PM at their warehouse location at 3801 Topping Avenue.

We will be working in a warehouse so please dress casual for this event and no open-toed shoes are allowed inside.  Also be sure to bring some water, you'll need it.  This can be vigorous work but it is also a very casual atmosphere centered on teamwork.

Please check in at the front desk, then join us in the volunteer lounge. There will be someone on staff at the facility to show/instruct us on what they need done for that day.

Children ages 6 and older are welcome to attend provided they are accompanied by an adult.  Harvesters can also accommodate volunteers with special needs if we let them know in advance.

Please share this opportunity with your family, friends, and coworkers!  You are allowed to bring up to 5 guests and we can usually arrange for bigger groups if needed.

Harvesters will always accept any food donations too so bring them with you when you come.  Thanks for considering this opportunity to Serve Kansas City!

 

** Please be firm with your commitment when you RSVP.  The agencies plan our work based upon the number of people we tell them we have going.  If your plans change we understand, just please change your RSVP. **

    What a hard-working (and FAST!) bunch of people I worked with filling backpack bags! Time flew! Unfortunately, NO ONE I worked with was from Serve KC, and I would REALLY like to get to know some of you at events! :-)

    My sincere apologies to all for my missing last night's event. I accidentally put Harvesters on my calendar for the 16th. Please put me down for the 23rd if that is the correct date.
