Give time during the holidays

Give time during the holidays

November 1, 2016 in Get Involved Harvest Time Newsletter

Join Ozarks Food Harvest’s mission to Transform Hunger into Hope with your gift of time. Individual and group volunteers are needed to sort donations, assemble Weekend Backpacks and build Senior Food boxes.

Check with your employer to see if they will allow you and colleagues to volunteer during business hours. Some employers will even match your gift of time with a monetary donation to Ozarks Food Harvest.

Volunteers make it possible for Ozarks Food Harvest to feed 30,000 individuals each and every week. Every hour donated by a volunteer provides 105 meals for those in need. Your help is needed to keep pantry shelves stocked through the holiday season.
