Care For Kids Collaboration

LUBC is going to help Care For Kids, an effort coordinated by Connexion West to provide food boxes for kids in need. We need volunteers to join us. We’ll be serving General Sherman.

• Box packing will be Wed. March 25 from 3-5 and from 6-8 at Connexion West
• Distribution on Fri. March 27 at General Sherman from 9-11

Volunteers must be adults (older teens ok) in good health and NOT in a high-risk group.
To sign up, go to Connexion West’s website, and also email secretary@lancasterubc.org so we can track how many volunteers we’ll have.

If you can’t volunteer, you may donate money at Connexion West’s website or make checks payable to Connexion West. But to benefit Care For Kids it must be received no later than March 21 so they get in before they buy the food. If you donate, also email Aaron Begley at abegley@victoryhill.org.

Finally, be assured that they are taking everyone’s safety seriously. Here are some of the measures they are taking to keep everyone safe:

o Sozo Pediatrics will provide protective items for volunteers.
o Between the two packing times at CW site, facilities will be sanitized.
o Sozo Pediatrics will be taking our temperatures before entering the site.
o Churches will bring their own table(s) to distribute boxes. This serves dual purpose of having a place for the boxes to go, as well as creating a physical barrier between volunteers and recipients.
