Pickup teams needed for Traders Joes

 3702 S Peoria Ave Tulsa, OK 74105

The Jenks Community Food Bank needs some strong, positive, SUV/truck/van owners to pick up produce at Trader Joe's on either Tuesday or Friday afternoon.  Their donation will easily fill one large vehicle, perhaps another. 

 

The pickup time at Trader Joe's is about 3pm.  When you bring the donation to the Jenks food bank, workers will be there to help unload and weigh it.  You should easily be finished before 4:30 or 5pm.

 

You may volunteer to do this once a month or more.  As the need for food grows in our community, so does the need for workers.  We serve at least 50 families each time we are open on Wednesday and Saturday.  We reached a high of 77 just last month.

 

Right now we have two men not affiliated with our church who go to the large food bank every Tuesday morning for us.  What a great time for friends to share!   They never see the clients, but we could not operate without them.  

 

You might make this a family event.  We have some mother/daughter teams who pick up from another store.  It is not picking up produce boxes, but the clients LOVE the deli bags.

 

A Newspring team serves clients every second Saturday of the month.  Join us for a great time!!!

 

Pray about it.  If God lays this on your heart, find Dan or (click to email)  Evelyn Williamson at church.
