Are you getting excited? We are only two days from the Old Bridge Meal Packing Event at McDivitt Elementary School.
I apologize that the video did not work for some of you in the email that was delivered yesterday. If you missed it, you can watch the video here: oldbridgemealpack.org/why-are-we-doing-this
We currently have 257 volunteers signed up for the first shift at 10am. We have 197 volunteers signed up for the second shift. That is a total of 454 volunteers set to serve! While the registration for the first shift is now closed, we still have spots available for the second shift at 12pm. Sign up to reserve your spot before the second shift closes.
We are excited to welcome Jessica (see picture) from Numana who will serve as our event leader. She will be traveling from Kansas, where Numana is headquartered to be with us. So make sure to welcome her and all the Numana staff who will be with us. We will also be welcoming a member of the Mission of Hope, Haiti staff.
For those of you who are signed up, make sure to arrive a few minutes early to receive your hair nets and aprons (don’t worry, you’ll look great in them). Be sure to wear casual clothing and comfortable shoes. Please do not bring any food or drinks to the packaging area.
If you plan on packing with a group of people, try to arrive together. You will not be taken to a packaging station until your entire group arrives. We will encourage fun, cheering, and spontaneous dancing throughout your time; be prepared to have a good time!
Our “Green Shirt” Leaders will be wearing blue shirts for the events. I know it is confusing, but that is how we run. Anyway, if you have any questions after you arrive, just look out for one of our “Green Shirt” leaders in blue.
We have the same shirt in orange that will be available for purchase at the event. All funds raised through shirt sales will go to fund next year’s meal packing event. The shirts will be $10 each.
