Volunteers Needed to Assemble ‘Holiday Hunger’ Packs for Students in Key West
With youth spearheading major movements on key issues facing our world today, Giving Tuesday is helping amplify the next generation to be leaders for a more generous world. United Way of the Florida Keys and SOS Foundation are joining in this by hosting the first Key West #GivingTuesdayKids event from 5:30‑7pm on Tuesday, December 3 at the SOS Community Kitchen (1010 United St).
UWFK and SOS Foundation are creating ‘holiday hunger’ packs for children and families in Key West. Volunteers 10 years and older are needed to decorate and fill 200 boxes. These will then be distributed at Gerald Adams Elementary to provide food to children who might otherwise be hungry without school lunches over the holiday break.
Families, individuals and community groups are welcome to participate. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring non-perishable, child-friendly food donations to be included, such as individually packaged granola bars, dried fruit, cracker packs, or easy rice. In addition to assembling the ‘holiday hunger’ packs, participants will learn more about local, national and international volunteer opportunities to continue to give back.
More details and registration information are available at KeysUnitedWay.org/UWFKGivingTuesday or at facebook.com/events/494765511112903/.
#GivingTuesdayKids is about encouraging young people to take action around the causes they care about most and will mobilize a million young people to give back on December 3, for a more just and generous world. Key West is encouraged to join the movement alongside UWFK and SOS.
