Mission Statement: "To gather and provide resources to hunger-relief partner charities serving individuals and families in Crawford, Erie, Huron and Lorain counties."
Join Threads of Wellness at Second Harvest on Dec. 2nd for a beautiful opportunity to give and receive this holiday season. Participate with us in our volunteer efforts to serve extra resources to our communities and/or for a donation based class immediately following. <3
What: Participants have 3 options to get involved:
- Volunteer two hours of time to sort out and repackage donated items in the warehouse receiving department. Register HERE.
- Participate in an All Levels Yoga class (chair modifications provided) for a suggested donation of $10. Register HERE.
- Both! Serve with a friend or group from your work, then flow through a delightful yoga session with plenty of de-toxing and de-stressing movements and still postures that set you up for a blissful Holiday Season! Be sure to register for both of these events separately so we can plan for you! <3
When: December 2nd, Volunteering 10AM-12PM, Yoga 12PM-1PM
Details for volunteers: Reserve your space to volunteer. We will help organize items to be sent out or picked up by over 100 partnering charities across 4 counties: Lorain, Erie, Huron and Crawford. Check out Second Harvest online for details of their many services.
Details for Yoga Students: Reserve your space HERE. Arrive at 11:50 to get set up for class and make your donation. We suggest a donation of $10 but please donate according to your heart and ability. Class will accommodate all levels of students from advanced (Powerful Flow) to those preferring to move while seated on a chair (Chair Yoga).
Why: 1 in 5 children face hunger. Second Harvest strives to end hunger in our 4 county area within the next 5 years. Their measurable outcome of your time in volunteering is seen in the ability of over 100 distribution centers/partner charities ordering and picking up specific needed foods to deliver to their local communities. The measurable outcome of your 10 dollar donation will be 50 meals (!!) served to our local community members that would otherwise go hungry. How awesome is THAT?!
Be sure to register for which ever event(s) you plan to attend. You will have to individually register for volunteering and class to attend both portions of the day. We look forward to serving and flowing with you at Second Harvest! <3
"As we review our past, we are humbled to report that we’ve been able to distribute over 118 million pounds of food, which is almost 99 million meals. Just as we know that this would not have happened without the help of so many caring and generous supporters, we realize that to reach all those in our area who are food insecure, we need your help. We believe that together we are doing even more than just feeding people. We are Growing Hope." ~ http://www.secondharvestfoodbank.org/about-us/mission-and-vision
