HOW YOU CAN HELP
HELP NOW! Morning Food Box Packing and Sack Lunches
If you are getting cabin fever and need to get out, MLM can use your help! MLM is looking for 3-5 volunteers Monday – Friday morning, 8:15am-11:30ish am. Since MLM is deemed essential, you will not be breaking the Stay at Home order. You would be in the warehouse, using proper social distancing protocol, packing food boxes for the next day. Please contact Rebecka at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or to sign-up to help.
For an all-ages, in-home project, MLM is still in need of sack lunches. Contact Rebecka at the email address above if you would like MLM to come pick up completed lunches.
Please include the following items in each lunch:
- A bottle of water
- A protein source* (tuna, Vienna sausages, chicken, etc.)
- 2 snacks (chips, crackers, granola bars)
- Fruit (a fruit cup, or applesauce)
- A spoon
- A napkin
*The MLM clients who receive these lunches will have no access to a can opener so please make sure that the items are either in single-serve bags or have pull tabs on top of the cans. Thank you!
