A Volunteer Saturday

Many Hands Make Easy Work

Oh. My. Goodness!  I can't believe it is June 30!!  Time just flies by!  And it looks like we had one post on May 1 and now one on June 30.  Yikes!  And my volunteer Saturday actually happened before Easter.  😲

Back on April 2 Little Zion hosted a volunteer event partnered with Caring for Friends to pack 500 snack bags.  While waiting for the truck and our guide to arrive we started another project...filling Easter eggs.

Once the truck arrived, we set up the lines, opening the boxes of snack supplies.

Then I helped Xyra.  She was the runner to keep the supplies up and the lines moving.  The team worked so well we packed all 500 bags in an hour!  There weren't a lot of us either; only about 20.

Check out this pile of cardboard!  The contents of all these boxes are bagged up and will be given to 500 people so they have healthy snacks to help them through the day or week.

We took all the cardboard home and put in the recycling bin.  

It was a great day!  Do you like to volunteer?  What kinds of things do you do to help others?

Thank you for stopping.  Your continued support means a lot to us during these blogging lulls.  

Warmest wishes!  Stay safe and well!
