Family Food Distribution Day
Samost JFCS and Golden Slipper Clubs and Charities hosted the first-ever Family Food Distribution Day in Voorhees on Sunday, June 3, 2012. For volunteers - toddlers to senior citizens - the day represented a way to give back to the community, family style! Volunteers helped to pack and deliver supplemental food boxes to over 220 families in need in South Jersey.
Starting the day bright and early at 8:30 am, 155 adults and 98 children arrived ready, willing, and able to give back to those less fortunate. As far as the eye could see, a long line of yellow volunteer shirts weaved throughout the property - each person with a smile, a heart full of giving, and an arm full of food. Children, while not busy packing food, were able to enjoy a special craft activity about food and charity.
The day was as meaningful to the volunteers as it was for those who received a box at their doorstep. Family Food Distribution Day was a huge success, and JFCS is already planning to host another in the near future, so stay tuned for more information! Until then, take time to enjoy our memories of the day below...
