Do you want to do something different with Dad this weekend for Father's Day? What about volunteering this Saturday, June 16th, to help assemble close to 300,000 meals to deliver to Haiti? Well, you can do that this weekend in downtown Phoenix, at the Phoenix Convention Center. Hundreds of volunteers have already registered, but to assemble all the meals needed (285, 120, to be exact), they still need several hundred more. Won't you consider being a part of this fantastic opportunity this weekend?
(Volunteers at a recent event, assembling close to 300,000 meals)
There are three shifts, all broken down into easy two hour segments - from 9am-11am, 11:30am-1pm, and 2pm-4pm. Children as young as 4 years old are welcome and encouraged, to make sure the whole family can participate in this volunteer activity.
Excellent sponsors like Stop Hunger Now (who make sure the meals get where they're supposed to go), Arizona Ford Dealers, Ewing Irrigation, and WeTopia are all involved to help make sure these meals are completed and shipped to Haiti after Saturday's 'packing party,' so to speak.

Hunger is a prolific problem, affecting not only those in our own community, but around the world. And if we can give a few hours of our time to help make sure hungry people are fed - no matter where they live - then we should do it. It might not feel like one person can make a difference, but you can - you really can.
Want to volunteer? Pre-registration is MANDATORY, and you can do so here on the website. The form is simple, but must be completed for every person - so if it's going to be you, Dad, Mom, and your children, make sure you fill out a form for each person in your party. Again, this "Hot Meals for Haiti" event will take place downtown, at the Phoenix Convention Center, in Exhibit Hall F. (The Convention Center is located at 33 S. 3rd St, Phoenix.) This is happening from 9am-5pm on Saturday, June 16th, but you can volunteer for a single two hour shift.
Get out there and volunteer!
