We believe. We believe in our community who works together to feed children and help families.
Yet every once in a while we worry as each new challenge faces us. As of this evening, 11/25/18, for Christmas Delivery 2018, we have 337 families (55 not confirmed yet) and 946 children (221 not confirmed yet).
We have 8 people who have said they will help for Christmas Delivery on 12/20/18 and of course our Duke Energy volunteers! It is going to take at least 200 more Delivery volunteers.
We need lots of help. If you can help deliver, please let us know. We will start on 12/20/18 at 10 am loading for delivery at the 4H Fairgrounds in Brazil.
Packing for delivery will start at 5 pm on 12/19/18 at the 4H Fairgrounds and delivery volunteers can get their info that evening.
We need volunteers who can physically move food and load vehicles for both days. We need volunteers who can stay after on the 20th and help clean up and can help move any extra or returned food to where it needs to go.
Last Christmas the volume of food and deliveries took us by surprise. We are sure this Christmas will too but we are figuring it out together. We are at almost twice the number of last Christmas as of 11/25/18.
Too much information? Just let us know if you can help on December 19th or 20th. We need you.
p.s. If you are one of the families we served this summer, have not returned a form, not called the Y, not Messaged us and did not speak with a volunteer yesterday, our volunteers left delivery information, you would be one of the 55 families not confirmed yet.
