United Way of Muscatine has joined #GivingTuesday by holding a meal packing on Tuesday, November 28th beginning at 4pm and going until all food is packed. The meal packing will be held at Faith United Church of Christ, 3307 Mulberry Ave.
Almost 4,000 people in Muscatine are food insecure (according to feedamerica.org) and over 1,700 of those are children. The Muskie Lockers will receive the food being packed to send home with children who don’t have the resources for evening and weekend meals. To learn more about Muskie Lockers, please visit their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Muskie-Locker-1143776895709005/
#GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment that is dedicated to giving around the world.
Volunteers are needed to help with food packing. Volunteers can help for one hour, or stay until all food is packed! All help is appreciated! Please call Lori at our office at 563-263-5963, or email Lori@unitedwaymuscatine.org to sign up.
