Volunteers Needed for Food Rescue Program
The Caring Center needs volunteers to pick up milk from the Lebanon Middle school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:45 pm as part of the food rescue program. It is normally one cooler full of milk, and The Caring Center will provide the coolers. Volunteers will transport the milk from the school to the Caring Center.

A food drive is a way for a group to collect items for the families that are at risk of hunger. A group typically collects non-perishables, such as canned goods, and boxed items from the community. This is a simple yet practical community service initiative. Here are the "Easy Steps for a Successful Food Drive."
