Volunteer for San Francisco’s Million Meals Event

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

The Salvation Army of San Francisco and Numana, Inc. will be holding a Million Meals packing event in the Bay Area this Saturday, April 24 between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m., and they are still looking for plenty of volunteers to lend a hand!

It’s easy to sign up – just grab some friends (the more the merrier) and select volunteer time slots at The Salvation Army Golden State Division’s online registration.

This event will be unique to those previous because they will attempt to pack all 1 million meals in only 1 day! What better way to help those in need in Haiti by contributing a few hours of your time towards reaching this million meal goal? Plus, it’s a perfect opportunity to celebrate National Volunteer Week.

For more information about and registration for the San Francisco Bay Area’s Million Meals Event, visit The Salvation Army’s Golden State Division’s website at www.tsagoldenstate.org. You can also raise awareness by sharing their Facebook Million Meals for Haiti event page!

Saturday (March 12) marked the 2 month anniversary of Haiti’s destructive earthquake, and compassionate hearts continue to overwhelmingly volunteer their time and effort to help survivors.

More than 1,500 volunteers in the Los Angeles area turned out last Saturday and Sunday to package 1 million meals for Haiti, the latest of these community events coordinated by The Salvation Army and Numana, Inc. Meals contain rice, soy protein, seasoning and vitamin powder in specially-prepared plastic bags, ensuring Haitians receive the sustenance and nutrition they need as their country rebuilds.

The Salvation Army Western Territory has more information about the event and some great photos, so be sure to check out their blog! And THANK YOU to all the volunteers who worked so hard to package 1 million meals for Haiti. We couldn’t do it without you!
