Community Service at the Central PA Food Bank

I'm still waiting on the official details from the food bank but I wanted to get this on the calendar.  We have the opportunity to help people in need this holiday season by getting involved with the Central PA Food Bank.  Unfortunately, I did not get my act together quickly enough so this year our ability to help is limited.  However, I plan to add more of these next year. 

Basically, they have an opening for 10 people to come in and help with food sorting, organizing, etc.  While I wish we could get more of us in there to help, I figure this is a good way for us to get our feet wet and I can plan larger volunteer opportunities in the new year.  Once I get official details on our specific areas of service, where to park, what to wear, etc I will post those.

Since we will only be able to have 10 people come, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you keep your RSVP up to date.  Since this is a community service event with a very limited attendance, I will not tolerate anyone who says they are coming and then doesn't show up.  The food bank is expecting us to have 10 people there, please do not disappoint them.  There will be a waiting list available for this event.  Since this for community service, there will be no $1 meetup fee for this event.

    I like going to the food bank. I am a volunteer right now. I have limitations, though, physically. I hope I am helpful, though. I don't remember signing up for this meetup though. I must have forgotten. I don't drive and don't have transportation for tonight. I would have made arrangements, if I remembered I had signed up. Thank you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
