Amazing volunteer turn out at Regional Food Bank

What a tremendous turn out. Cornellians of all ages came out in force, joining with other members of the community, to prepare for shipping some 4-5,000 pounds of goods for regional families in need. Cornell’s Public Service Center informed us that Cornell Cares 2013 had programs in 33 cities with over 740 participants total. Good work!

Hats off to the Regional Food Bank for all the good work it does and to today’s volunteers for pitching in. It felt good to give a little something back to the community, didn’t it?

Here is the crew hard at work:

Information for food bank volunteers

We received the following information from the Food Bank regarding the volunteering exercise on January 5:

I have attached a picture of the volunteer entrance as well as a map- when you come in you will want to drive all the way around to the back of the warehouse (past the trucks) to park. You will see a “Volunteer” sign painted on the building with an arrow pointing to a ramp that leads to the door.
