The following e-mail announcement was sent by Amy Monsky to the SHL News and Updates mailing list:
I would like to invite you to a special volunteer opportunity with the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry. Normally, we have one project per month, but this month we are offering two. This opportunity will not be on the regular Saturday morning, but on Tuesday EARLY! morning instead. We are gathering a group of people to help assemble meals for Charleston Basket Brigade, a 501c3 non-profit that
assembles and delivers ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal to 100,000
hungry people in the Charleston area.
I will be heading up a group of SHL members to work together assembling Thanksgiving meals on Tuesday, 11/25. I would love to have your help! In order to stay together as a group, we must go in together as a group, so I'm asking everyone to arrive NO LATER THAN 6:45am. I know it's early, but you can do it! We are meeting outside exhibit hall C. There will be over 400 people assembling that day, so
you can call me on my cell phone at 843-291-8248 if you are having trouble finding us. Assembly of the 3,300 meals usually takes until 11:30am or so, but you can leave whenever you need.
If you can't get there at 6:45am or don't want to work with the group, there are other options. You can assemble meals on your own - plan to arrive by 7am. You can deliver meals - plan to arrive by 8am. You can donate - $30 feeds a family of 4-6. For more information, including how to donate, please visit their website at www.charlestonbasketbrigade.com.
Where: North Charleston Coliseum, Exhibit Hall C
When: TUESDAY, 11/25 6:30-6:45am, outside exhibit hall C. Please DO NOT BE LATE if you want to work with the group.
One final note, and this is for parents: This is a GREAT opportunity for your kids, even your littles.
There is not an age requirement for the assembly, but I would not
recommend it for kids under 12yo or so. It's fast-paced and kids are
likely to be in the way. However, delivery is an excellent way to
involve even the smallest kids. You can control how much or how little
you deliver, and how close or how far, so you can tailor your route to fit the needs and attention span of your children. If you want something to do with
your kids, don't miss out on this very worthwhile opportunity.
Let's go help feed some families!
