Kids and Families Fight Hunger on MLK Day

January 24, 2014 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import


On Monday, more than 430 volunteers, including 200 youth, their families and community members, rolled up their sleeves and packed, sorted and labeled food to help provide for those in need as part of Bring Your Child to Serve Day, in honor of MLK Day. By the time the last volunteer shift ended, 30,720 pounds of rice were packed—the equivalent of nearly 24,000 meals!

It was inspiring to see so many youth excited about giving back to their community and helping others. Thank you to all who volunteered, and we hope to see you again soon! We’d also like to thank our sponsor Bremer Bank for making the day possible.

And remember, the need for volunteers and donations is year-round at Second Harvest Heartland. Please check out our website or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to hear about opportunities to continue to help.
