Once again, we have been given the opportunity to volunteer at the New Hope Food Pantry in Southgate.  We have been volunteering for the past few years and each year our number of volunteers has grown.  We are very excited to be able to help those in need and hope you are too.  We will help distribute food items for Thanksgiving on November 19th and Christmas December 17th..  We encourage parents as well as students from grades 3 through 8 to participate in sharing your time with this community.  You may volunteer one day or both.  We know that some students will have basketball games on these dates so we will adjust volunteer times once the schedules are published.  Every year there are groups of volunteers that have arrived a little late or need to leave early, and everything always works out fine.  Any time that you can help, even an hour is extremely helpful.  We normally begin by 8:30 and finish around Noon.  In the past, we have served up to 180 families, so we need all the help we can get.  We also welcome alumni to come join us!  
Please read and mark one of the responses below and return to school by Friday,

October 28th.  Plans can change, we understand.  Right now we are looking for an approximate number of volunteers to give the food pantry so they know if additional volunteers are needed.  Additional information will be sent home to those who participate on the Monday before the volunteered day.  If you have any questions, please let us know ~~ Mrs. Twehues and Mrs. Dee
