Got two hours? Join my Donate Dinner team!
I’m helping Meals on Wheels People, provide meals to local seniors by leading up a Donate Dinner team. I hope you’ll consider donating two hours to help us greet customers at the Jim’s Thriftway store on Sunday, November 24, 2013.
Donate Dinner is one of the largest fundraising events in the Portland metropolitan area, held the five days before Thanksgiving. Last year, more than 1,500 people volunteered for 2-hour shifts and the outcome was incredible – they raised more than $220,000 to support the Meals-On-Wheels program. That’s 60,000 meals!
We’ll greet customers as they come in to the store to shop for their Thanksgiving dinner, offer them a Donate Dinner card, and let them know they can buy dinner for a senior just by telling the cashier when they check out. Watch this video to see just how simple it is.
Please join my team for a 2-hour shift. Having volunteer greeters more than triples the amount of money that’s donated each hour. Last year, each volunteer raised an average of $225 per shift – That’s enough to feed 61 seniors!
Together, we can make sure that no senior in our community goes hungry or experiences social isolation. Click http://www.donatedinner.org/register1.cfm?team=RH1R to see my team’s current schedule and pick a shift that works best for you.
If you are not available on Sunday, November 24, 2013 to volunteer for my team, please go to http://www.donatedinner.org and see if another date and store are available. It takes a village to feed our seniors!
