Community Service Report
Dennis Orhtman, State Comm. Service Chair
Volunteer projects being carried out by our units are outstanding and so innovative! Keep up the good work!
Great news! We got a raise. The dollar value for an hour of volunteer service is now $22.14.
A worthy community service project is Idaho Food Bank's Backpack program. Every weekend, thousands of backpacks, loaded with food to supply 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2 snacks, are sent home with needy kids to help them have full tummy's while they are away from school. This is done with participating parents' permission.
It costs $6.20 per child per weekend. $28.80 feeds 1 hungry child every weekend for a month; $120 pays for half of a school year; $229.40 provides 1 hungry child with food every weekend for an entire year.
Mail your backpack donations to:
The Idaho Foodbank Gift Processing Department,
P.O. Box 5601, Boise, ID 83705-0601
