Kern County Cares! Gleaners Canned Food Drive
Canned and Non-perishable food drive to benefit Golden Empire Gleaners
Pizza Party Contest with Bragging Rights
It is that time of year again to collect non-perishable food for the Gleaners. Clean out your cupboards, take a trip to Walmart, but do your best to bring in many pounds of food to ease hunger in Kern County. Bring your donation to the extension office by or before December 21st. We will weigh it and have you fill out a paper candy cane to show the world that you care. My goal is to cover Gordon's window with candy canes. The club who brings in the most food (by weight) will get bragging rights and certificates for 4 large carry out pizzas from Santa Barbara Pizza. Depending on the size of your club this will be at least a start to a fun pizza party. Remember that this is considered a community service and you can record it in your record book. Teenage members need to do a little more than just participate to get credit. They can do the organizational part for your club. They can get the younger members all fired up to do their part, document and keep track of the progress made. Let’s make this a good competition and a fun activity. See attached flyer for contribution suggestions.
