South Calgary Community Church is again a designated Shoebox Drop-off Centre for Southwest Calgary. Shoebox National Collection week is coming quickly - Monday, Nov 14th to Sunday, Nov 20th.
We definitely need your help greeting people and receiving shoeboxes. Think about helping us for a 2 hour time slot during the drop-off schedule on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (the busiest day!). Volunteers will be teamed up. At least 2 greeter/volunteers will work together in each time slot. Lynn or Kathy look forward to talking to you about scheduling a time to greet and receive boxes.
Volunteer time slots available:
Wednesday, Nov 16 (4:30–6:30pm)
Friday, Nov 18 (12:00–2:00pm and 2:00-4:00)
Saturday, Nov 19 ( 12:00pm-1:30pm and 1:30-3:00pm)
Sunday, Nov 20 (10:00am–12:00pm, 12:00-2:00pm, 2:00-4:00pm)
Reminder: empty shoeboxes are available in the church lobby to take and fill.
