Hi. If you are using the Meetup mobile app on your phone, look down a few lines below and tap the red-colored "Read more" to expand the description. TAP THIS --------- If you are using a computer or laptop/notebook, then you should be fine. Okay, everybody should now be able to see the full description on their screen. Reminder for everyone: If Meetup sends too many emails, then look at the bottom of their email and click Unsubscribe or Manage your settings or account page. Recommended for anyone new to this group or volunteering for the first time: https://www.meetup.com/LosAngelesVolunteers/events/218808844 ____________________________________________ FAQ Q: Why isn't the address posted? A: One member went before, but was turned away when she arrived. I don't know if she just signed up here on Meetup or if she also signed up with them. Their food pantry only needs a few volunteers or sometimes they cancel last minute, so I don't want anyone to show up to find out the event is rescheduled or they have too many volunteers that room isn't available for you. Registering with them will save you a spot with them and they can provide you with the address, parking info, instructions, and updates if anything changes. Scroll down for more info on how to register with them. ____________________________________________ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0XweS5A3wQ http://mannaconejo.org/about-us "Founded in 1971 by a group of people who felt that no person should ever go hungry in the Conejo Valley, Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank has been providing food assistance to our friends and neighbors in need for more than 40 years; and have made it our mission — 'To feed hungry people in the Conejo Valley'." "Manna is situated in a 700 square-foot house in the 'Old Town' area of Thousand Oaks, and serves, on average, more than 1,400 people per month. With holiday distribution programs, we help over 20,000 people each year throughout the 101 corridor cities from the Calabasas Grade to the Conejo Grade." Their food pantry may need help during the holiday season. They have their own registration process to help them manage # of volunteers (to avoid too many people). ____________________________________________ To help, sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409094eaaae2ca0f94-saturday6 Redundant Reiteration: Signing up here on Meetup is insufficient. Each person should also register with Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409094eaaae2ca0f94-saturday6 If the date is full or closed, maybe check back later as the date approaches in case others cancel last minute and space opens up. Note: Even though this is posted here, it's possible this event may be canceled/rescheduled, or they may have enough volunteers. So if anyone wants to participate, it's important to register with Manna Food Bank. They need to manage the number of volunteers. ____________________________________________ Minimum age to help is 14 with adult/guardian approval & supervision. "Due to the sporadic nature of donations and inventory your volunteer day may be canceled at the last minute if [they] feel there is no need for extra assistance." Questions can be answered by Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank - [masked] http://mannaconejo.org/contact-us ____________________________________________ The food pantry is located in a residential neighborhood. Street parking should be available. I could be wrong, but I think it looks like
