Also, we will be collecting shoes for donation to Share Your Soles. All shoes are accepted - they will take the sturdy shoes to Africa and sell the others in their shoe sales. Contact Julie with questions.
We assist in the Food Market of the People's Resource Center. The Food Market is where underpriviledged families receive groceries. It is set up like a grocery store and the clients can "shop" for their food. We sort food, stock shelves, and assist clients with selecting their items.
Please dress comfortably and casually. Jeans and gym shoes are fine. It can get a little cold in the food pantry in the winter, so please dress accordingly.
Please do not park in the parking lot directly outside of the building. Street parking is available.
We will probably go out for lunch after this project.
PROJECT RECAP: When we first arrived we helped store donated bread and put potatoes into easily accessible bins. Then Leslie and Kathy helped prepare carts for the clients. Julie helped clients select vegetables, Mike helped them select frozen meat, and Lindsey and Dan were outside in the cold helping clients select bread and potatoes.
Afterwards we went to a great Irish pub in downtown Wheaton that was suggested by Mike.
