Volunteers Needed for Valley Outreach

Dear Ascension members,

Our Church, along with a dozen other local churches, provides volunteers to staff Valley Outreach food shelf during the year. We participate quarterly by providing four people per day for three days to assist our neighbors in a free grocery shopping experience.

We are scheduled for Wednesday, Jan 17, and Friday, Jan 19, 2018. (Valley Outreach is closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King holiday.) Times are 9:30 a.m. – 12 noon. The dates for the rest of the year are: April 2, 4, 6. June 18, 20, 22. Sept 5, 7. Nov 19 ,21, 23.

As part of our participation, we are asked to bring grocery bags. Last fall, Kate and Erin Davis had a grocery bag drive and collected 400 bags for Valley Outreach! Congratulations girls! What a great mission project. We want to build on their success and collect bags prior to our volunteer week. Please bring bags to Church. Leave them in the grocery cart in the entryway to the Parish Hall.

If you would like to volunteer or need me to pick up bags, please call or email me. Thank you all for willingness to help those in our community who are food insecure.
