A big “thank you” to Gemma Keremedjiev for organizing the October group of volunteers! Our next gathering is the 11th where we will be sorting foods.

    MAY 2017

    Our next opportunity to help at the Hillside Community Food Bank will be on May 13th! It is a wonderful time of working with fellow DCC members/friends and meeting others in the area who are working beside us! At our last gathering our group of 8 members along with another group worked on putting “Kid Packs” together. These are boxes of food to help children have something to eat over the weekend. In less than 2 hours we had put 1402 boxes together! What an awesome team of workers! Thank you!!


    Our assignment for May 13th is “Bulk Packaging” ; repacking, sealing, labeling and boxing bulk food products into family-sized servings. We are still in need of volunteers at this point in time!


    The Community Food Bank is a well run and organized operation and I’m sure you will discover that helping others will bring you joy!


    We will gather in the front parking lot at 8:15a for departure and return no later than 12 noon! You need bring only your smile and a willingness to help others. Please contact Gabriele to get your name on the list.
