Hello ICARE Volunteers!
We are grateful to our two cosponsors for this project that will generate Thanksgiving Fixings and donate this food to the Monument Crisis Center who will distribute it to people in need:
- Unity Center of Walnut Creek
- Islamic Center of Walnut Creek
Now we need YOU: committed volunteers to help with donating and receiving donations. Please sign up and the cosponsors will contact you (or you can contact them) for details.
These Thanksgiving Fixings bags (see below for details) will be distributed at at Monument Crisis Center's Thanksgiving distribution to 1,000 at-risk, underserved families before Thanksgiving.
You and your volunteers can either buy and assemble Thanksgiving fixings bags or buy individual items, like 10 boxes of mashed potatoes or a case of corn or cranberries--whatever is preferred. All the fixings that are not in complete bags will be sorted by other volunteers and assembled at a later date.
Congregational Co-Sponsors will coordinate the buying and assembling of bags. Volunteers can drop off their donations at either of the co-sponsoring congregations that sign up for the project and then congregation hosts can drive the bags over to the center.
Anyone can sign up to volunteer. The need is great. We need lots of volunteers for this event.
