WDT Feeding South Dakota Backpack Program Volunteer Event
October 23, 2018 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmCalling all Western Dakota students and employees! Would you like to help feed more than 1,800 Rapid City at-risk, chronically hungry school children at no cost to you?
You can make a difference by volunteering less than two hours to help Western Dakota Tech form a "production line" to place already purchased food items in sacks at Feeding South Dakota. We need at least 15 volunteers to participate in this activity, from noon to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23. The more people who volunteer, the quicker we complete the sack filling activity.
Feeding South Dakota will deliver the sacks we fill to Rapid City area schools to place in children's backpacks to help feed them for a weekend.
This is a fun, social, teambuilding event! Just ask those in the photo above who have kindly volunteered to participate in an earlier Backpack event at Feeding South Dakota.
Feeding South Dakota is located at 1111 N. Creek Dr.
There are three ways to sign up to participate in this event: 1) Send an email to project coordinator Pam Stillman-Rokusek, 2) fill out the sign-up sheet on the Student Success Center bulletin board (students, employees) or in the Mail Room (employees), 3) call Pam at (605) 718-2970.
