Cardozo Family Volunteer Event

November 12, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Volunteers are needed on the second Tuesday of every month, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., to help distribute food at Cardozo Education Campus. These free food “markets,” are sponsored by Communities in Schools in partnership with The Capital Area Food Bank. Volunteers help with registration, unpacking the food, assisting the families, and cleaning up. The job is easy and fun: you get to chat with numerous people, and you can wear comfortable shoes! The next market is on November 12. For more information, contact Livy More.
