Male Mentors are needed for fall programming in the following schools: Cass Tech, Harper Woods High, Pontiac High, and Community High in Warren….
Why more men are needed :
- There is a shortage of male mentors, students are looking for male role models.
- Many young people are coming from homes where there is an absence of a positive male role model for any number of reasons. Male mentors help to bridge this gap.
- Male mentors are needed to share their work experiences, knowledge and skills if we want to build a competent and skilled work force.
- Male mentors can help boys to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world of work.
- Think of the types of important talks you have had with other men. Now, imagine a young boy not having that opportunity. You can provide that for them.
How often are we provided a unique opportunity to “Pass It On” or to share the qualities that make each of us so special? Please consider this remarkable opportunity of pass it on!!! For more info call (586) 698-4536 or visit our website: http://www.winningfutures.org/.
Happy Summer Everyone!
Hope you’re having fun in the sun and enjoying this great weather!
It’s summer, and more than 315,000 kids who depend on school meals are at home and hungry. Charter One Foundation and other generous sponsors are matching gifts dollar for dollar so that we can provide 2 million meals to these children.
We have several projects happening at Gleaners Community Food Bank in the Detroit and the Taylor warehouses.
We are looking for volunteers to assist with all these projects.
Here is a list of volunteer opportunities and details:
Ÿ Office Volunteers: Scheduling, data entry, light clerical.
Ÿ Warehouse Volunteers: Pulling agency orders and packing for agency distribution.
Ÿ Pantry Pack Volunteers: Packing food items into boxes for families.
ŸMobile Volunteers: Packing and bagging food boxes for school distributions.
***Projects will be assigned depending on the priority of our warehouse needs.
Dates need to be filled:
July 30th 9-12noon and 1-4p.m./July 31st 9-12noon and 1-4p.m.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
We welcome individuals and groups of any size.
During the summer months we experience a lower number of volunteers and without your support it is very difficult for us to continue our mission “Nourishing communities by feeding hungry people.”
Please help us by scheduling a volunteer visit soon.
Please call me or send me an email so that we can schedule you or your group.
