Speakers will be from 9 - noon. There are two different tracks - one about children abd one for adults.
Two more items to add to this event
1. We will be collecting food for the GF food pantries. Please bring anything that you can to help. Snack bars, Mac and Cheese, Noodles, and lunch items are especially helpful right now
2. I am so excited to tell everyone that North Hills Community Outreach is
providing GF Thanksgiving dinners to low income families through their food
pantry for the 2nd year!!!! This is a direct result of their experience with
the Gluten Free food pantry that was started 3 years ago. They anticipate
serving 15-20 families based on their service demand!
They have a donor who is supplying all the GF "fixings". They need cash donations to provide gift cards for the families to purchase their turkeys. You can support this wonderful project by donating on their secure site at http://nhco.org/donation_form.cfm and designate “GF Thanksgiving” on the line for how the gift should be used.
Or if you are coming to the conference on Saturday, you can bring a check made out to North Hills Community Outreach with a designation of GF Thanksgiving on the memo
line. It will be delivered to NHCO with their food donations next week.
What a wonderful gift to low income families who need to eat GF!!
And we still need a lot more volunteers!!! So please consider offering 2 hours of your time to make this event a success.
This is always a great event. Please mark your calendars! More details to follow!
