Families In Action & FaithWorks
February 08, 2020
Providing opportunities for families with children of all ages to serve together in our community. This month we will be participating in Adopt a Valentine and A Simple Gesture Neighborhood Pick-Up.
Adopt A Valentine
When your family signs up to "Adopt A Valentine," please indicate how many "valentines" you would like "adopt." Families In Action will then contact you with a name and contact information of a widow from Westover that you will have the opportunity to make a special card and or/little gift to remember her on Valentine's Day (or during the week.) We try to match you up with someone close to your home if possible.
A Simple Gesture Neighborhood Pick-up
You will be emailed a list of homes and contact information a week before the pickup date and are asked to call or email the homes to remind them you are coming. Volunteers will meet at Westover on Saturday, February 8th at 8:45 to get their bags, and head out at 9:00. The concept is simple, when you pick up a bag, leave an empty bag (if they have 2 or 3 bags, leave the same number of empty). Donors leave their bags on their porch. Your route will end at Out of the Garden Project, our partner pantry for February. When you drop off you food, come in and let us know you arrived. A team will unload your car and sort the food while you check-in. 100% of the food collected will be given to children in Guilford County.
