LYPA at God’s Pantry

Kick off the New Year with some volunteer time!

Join us to support God’s Pantry for a food sort session!

This is a hi impact, hi energy shift in our non-temperature controlled warehouse, as such please wear closed-toed shoes and dress for the weather. It’s also not a bad idea to wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit messy!
