Description

Join Project Helping as we partner with Jewish Family Services Hand Up Food Pantry in supporting military families. As space is limited, make sure to register before attending this awesome event!

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

Volunteers will distribute food on base to military families. The food is generously donated through the Jewish Family Services. Volunteers will be expected to lift at least 25 pounds, help offload a truck, separate and organize food, then pass it out in an orderly fashion.
