Intown Collaborative Ministries (ICM) Food Pantry Needs You
In addition to financial support and food donations, Glenn had been asked to help support the ICM Food Pantry by signing up volunteers to work at the pantry on Saturday mornings. You are welcome to sign up as individuals on any given Saturday, but Glenn will send a large group of volunteers 4 Saturdays in 2013. The dates that Glenn is responsible for are January 19th, March 9th, May 4th, and September 7th (which is Good Neighbor Day). We need 12 volunteers to help each of these Saturdays from 10:15 to 12:30ish. The food pantry is located at Druid Hills UMC, at the corner of Ponce and Briarcliff.
You may also help ICM by volunteering to pack special packages of groceries each Friday afternoon. 2-3 people are needed to come to Druid Hills United Methodist Church after 2:30 pm but before 4:00 pm. The team will package approx. 20 bags of groceries which will be distributed on Saturday morning. The exercise will take about 1 hour. If you are interested, send your name and email address to the Pantry Leader, Gene Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't have to be available every Friday to participate. This is an ideal opportunity for a team of friends who might like to volunteer together once a month or more often. Youth are welcome with an adult. Families are always welcome, too. Perfect for those who can't come on Saturday!
