Volunteers Needed for Day of Action 2017 - June 21, 2017
The United Way of the Brazos Valley’s Day of Action is needing 85 volunteers from the local community to assemble a record 3,000 Baby Bundles this year, to be given to local hospitals. A Baby Bundle is a tote packed with a board book, handheld toy, and helpful information on family budgeting and community resources. Baby Bundles will be distributed to families through the labor & delivery departments of area hospitals just after the baby is born.
Day of Action is an opportunity for communities to come together and address the issues that matter most to them. This year, United Way is fighting for access to education and early literacy for babies in the Brazos Valley. The Day of Action 2017 will take place on Wednesday, June 21st in two shifts this year.
The first shift is from 9:30-11:30am and will focus on filling the bags with the items. We are looking for 70 volunteers.
The second shift will be from 2:00pm - 4:00pm and will need 15 volunteers. The volunteers in this group will be doing more heavy lifting and storing of the completed bins of baby bundles, and transporting them to an offsite storage facility.
Both morning and afternoon volunteer shifts will occur at the St. Joseph Catholic Church Activity Center, at 700 E 26th Street Bryan, Texas.
