Minutes, February 16

This Saturday we will be volunteering with Saturdays of Service and the College Democrats at the Philabundance Food Bank.
"Philabundance is the region’s largest hunger relief organization. They serve low income residents at risk of hunger and malnutrition, of which 23% are children and 16% are senior citizens. Philabundance provides a reliable source of food to 9 counties in the Delaware Valley."

Last year for this project we put together packages of different non-perishable food to be delivered to homes. It was a lot of fun! Email us if you are interested in attending. We are leaving at 8:30 from Parrish Circle and arriving back at Swarthmore at 12:45.

This weekend we are working with Saturdays of Service at the Cupid's Chase National 5K Run. This event is being held by Community Options Inc., which is a national nonprofit that develops community based homes and employment for people with disabilities.
We will be helping with registration, water stations, and other duties for the run.

This project will be from 9 am-12 pm this Saturday, February 12th, so send us an email if you can make it. We will meet at Parrish Circle, and drive to Philadelphia from there.

We are continuing to table for the blood drive this week at Essie Mae's as well, so if anyone can donate blood, (especially in a morning time slot) sign up!
