I think this will be my last post of the year. Things are getting crazy, and will only continue to get crazier for the next three months or so. But it's a good note to go out on. The Chebucto Connections Timebank has sent around some volunteer opportunities if you are staying in town over the holidays. Have a good one, everybody.
The food bank located at St. Paul’s church needs volunteers Tuesday, December 17th and Wednesday, December 18th to help with unloading turkeys, putting together food boxes, and transporting food boxes.
Tuesday, December 17th
8:30-12:00: Volunteers to lift turkeys and hampers or put together food boxes
Wednesday, December 18th
9:00-12:30: Volunteers to lift hampers or put together food boxes
12:30-3:30: Volunteers to lift hampers, put together food boxes, and drivers with vehicles to help deliver food boxes.
