Summer Meal Volunteers and donations

Thank you to all of you who have volunteered to help make and deliver lunch on Wednesdays to school age kids in Charleston this summer.  Thank you also for those who have donated money or food items. We are pretty well covered for volunteers June 3-July 3 but have not scheduled volunteers for the remainder of the summer yet (Wednesday from 7/10 through 8/7), so it is not too late to volunteer!  It's always good to have people we can contact if we need subs also.  Volunteer by calling the office, writing a note on your attendance card, or contacting Judy Brown.

In terms of donations, we need juice boxes and individually packaged dessert items within the next 3 weeks, and after that will also need chips and applesauce/fruit cups. Please remember we cannot use items containing peanut butter!
