Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

I am excited to tell you about our upcoming Mighty Mom events.  We are so blessed to have such faithful committed supporters and friends like you guys.  So many of you have contacted us wanting to know how you can be a part of serving the hungry in our community and we can’t wait to meet you!

April 6 & 7

Our Spring Break Mobile Pantry (our free grocery store) will be held at Immaculate Conception Church on April 7.  We L O V E this outreach project.  We typically do this 3 times a year when the kids are out of school for extended breaks.  This is a way for MightyMoms to serve those families in need for extra groceries while the kids are out of school.  We ask churches and small groups to collect specific items for us to give away that morning.  We will also give away hygiene products and have our “free” mini garage sale.  Gently used clothing, baby items, etc. are given to those who need them.  This is always so much fun for the giver and the receiver.

We need volunteers to help us sort and load our trucks and vans on Monday April 6  from 1-3 at our MM building in DS.  We also need people on Tuesday…the day of the pantry…from 930-1.  We will set up at 930 and “open” the pantry from 1030-1230.  Usually, everything is given away and we just pack up our tables and clean up a little and we are done.  Yes!  Kids are welcome to serve with us that day.  We ❤️ kids helping kids!

April 18th

Our 2nd volunteer opportunity in April is our Full Tummy Project Food Drive at Sams in Denham Springs on Saturday April 18 from 10-1.  We need a couple volunteers each hour to help us greet the many Sams customers that day.  We will sell Jambalaya and baked goodies too.  If you like to bake, would you help us by baking some of your delicious homemade cookies, brownies or any sugary treat and bag them for us to sell that morning?  Thank you bakers out there.  Our Full Tummy Project grocery bill is somewhere between 8-10K a month.  If we could receive the food/money we need to finish out the FTP school year on this one day….it would be a huge help to us.

Please check your calendars and get back to us.

We are so thankful for all of you who have the hands to serve and the hearts to love.

XOXO,

Dawn Birdsong
