POP-UP EVENT!! We have a special need for volunteers this Labor Day Monday to pack relief supplies to send to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our group will help from 9-10am. Hygiene kits include essential items such as toothpaste, washcloth, soap, and shampoo, which are critical to help keep people healthy and prevent the spread of illness.
DONATIONS: The need for medical supplies is critical during this time and Heart to Heart is asking for a $20 donation. Please give if, and what, you can. If you can not attend, but want to donate please visit the HHI website.
REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers must be 18 years or older to volunteer independently. Youth are encouraged to volunteer, but require parental supervision. Please wear comfortable closed toe shoes and clothing appropriate for warehouse work.
The warehouse does NOT have air conditioning but fans will be running and there is plenty of cold water for volunteers. Various warehouse activities may include lifting, standing, walking, assembling hygiene kits. We can accommodate requests if certain activities do not fit with an individual, including sitting activities.
LIMITS: 20 volunteers, 1 guest per Serve KC member please.
