HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

At Community Servings, we believe in the power of food to heal and bring hope to our clients who are critically and chonically ill. These folks cannot get to the store or cannot prepare food for themselves or their families. That is where you come in! We need volunteers and their families to help deliver a week's worth of food to our clients. You are not only preventing them from going hungry, and bringing them delicious food, you are showing that they are not forgotten and that they are important to society.

DESCRIPTION

Do you like brightening someone's week? Help us deliver meals to our community members who are suffering from illness. You will deliver to them a week's worth of delicious food and snacks that they can enjoy all week long. Our clients cannot physically get food or provide meals for their families, so we provide them with comforting meals. You and your family can do this activity together. 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Parent or guardian willing to drive a vehicle for deliveries

2. CORI background check/form for the volunteer and the parent/guardian
