Volunteer During Depend® & United Way Days of Action, June 15-24

Days_Of_Action-2015

Depend® and United Way are coming together to promote healthy, active and independent living throughout an individuals’ life, with a focus on volunteering.

Depend® & United Way Days of Action will support MeaningFULL Meals.

More than 56% of Guilford County Schools (GCS) students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. In the summer , when school is not in session, these children often do not have the same access to a nutritious meal and go hungry. To complement the work of GCS feeding centers, MeaningFULL Meals is a summer nutrition project by United Way of Greater Greensboro and The Volunteer Center of Greensboro to help feed hungry children in our community in the evening.

Volunteers are needed for the following:

Food Drive Host: Host a food drive at your work, school or place of worship. Download the Food Drive Kit.

Pantry Makeover Team Member: Help spruce up the food pantry at Wiley Elementary School!

Recipe Wizard: Create or research a delicious, healthy recipe to share with families who benefit from the MeaningFULL Meals program. Email your recipe to Dana Carter at United Way of Greater Greensboro.
