Backpack Buddies Volunteers
Backpack Buddies Back to Pack, Buddies!
NOTE: We are no longer packing on Mondays. Please sign up to come pack on only Tuesday or Wednesdays.
The children of Pulaski Elementary School are back "in school" and 30 kids are ready to receive some extra meals for the weekends... this is where we come in!
Covid-19 Safety Protocol (*per First and CDC guidelines): Facial coverings that cover Nose and Mouth are required on church property and through the duration of all person-to-person interactions that represent First.
ONLY Tuesday OR Wednesday: Packers! Where: First. When: Tuesday or Wednesday coming in between 2 and 5PM. Your mission: to pack meals for the 30 students. (Don't worry - it's easy. I've made detailed instructions and I'll come if you need me!)
-- Covid: Packing happens on the church stage in Fellowship Hall. You will have access to the pantry off Stage Right. If you have someone who you feel safe packing with (ie: an unsuspecting partner, some lively little minions (aka kids), or someone outside your home who you are ready to spend time with) please sign up as a single entry and enjoy your masked-time together. If you feel that packing is not something you can do right now, it's okay.
Signing Up to pack Via SignUp Genius:
1. "Available Slots" appear available for the Tuesday of each week. You are signing up for your ENTIRE PACKING PARTY (group/friend/family) in the slot for the WEEK. You are welcome to arrive anytime between 2PM and 5PM Tuesday OR Wednesday (only one time each week) - you may leave anytime, even after 5pm. The door locks automatically, just close the door behind you. When you select the "Available Slot," click on the large "Submit and Sign Up" button at the bottom of the screen. Then, in the "Comments" please indicate which weekday you intend to come to the church. EXAMPLE: "Available Slot" Tuesday, January 5th. "Whitney & 6 Cute Packing Minions - Wednesday."
Please note: Packing 30 backpacks can be time-intensive without two people.
2. There are TWO SLOTS for the week leading up to Spring Break. (We get to send these kids home with some additional meals to get through their break! Hooray!) We need TWO PACKING PARTIES on TWO INDIVIDUAL DAYS for this week - please indicate your day when you sign up (IF you want to sign up to pack 60 backpacks that week, just sign up twice with your day).
3. You can easily tell SignUp Genius to add your signups to your calendar and even to send you a reminder of your sign up. I hope this goes smoothly, but... well, we all learned a lot in 2020.... Let me know if you have any problems and I'll help you through it. Whitney: 303-968-6996
In the midst of all this and whatever you feel you can do... Remember: You are missed. You are appreciated. Thank you.
