Food Drive Day at the Alameda County Fair
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Once again, Alameda County Community Food Bank has been invited to participate in a food drive event at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton on Wednesday, June 26th.
This food drive yielded over 39,000 pounds of food last year which helped us to assist struggling families during the summer months when the need for food resources spike.
Volunteers will work in teams, interacting with fairgoers at 3 enterance gates, and collect canned food donations in exchange for entrance to the fair. (There will be tables, chairs and a tent at each entrance or gate.)
In appreciation for their service, volunteers will receive a free admission ticket to the fair to use any day in the future, along with free parking for the day of the food drive. The fair runs through July 7th and is open every day except Mondays. Additionally, on this day - Wednesday, June 26th, all rides are just $1.00 each!
All volunteers age 17 and under must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
Volunteers are needed for the following shifts:
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
1:00 pm - 4:00pm
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
7:00 pm - 9:00pm
Please select the shift you'd like to cover above and complete the registration form. Each interested volunteer must sign up individually. If you have any questions please contact our Food Drive Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support of the Alameda County Community Food Bank!
