Food Bundling Assistant for Sanford Community (55+)
Volunteers for Community Impact
The Picnic Project, pre Covid, provided groceries that those in need could come pick from. Due to the higher demand for food, packing the food to hand out is more feasible. The group packs on Thursdays (sometime on Saturday depending on need) and pass out on Friday and Sunday. The day they need the most help is Thursday from 11:00am-3:00pm. Mask are required and social distancing is adhered to as close as possible.
The Picnic Project is part of the First United Methodist Church in Sanford. You do not have to be a member of the church or Methodist in order to volunteer. Volunteers do need to be 55 or older.
