Silverbackks is a local grassroots organization that helps members of our community in various ways. One of our ongoing programs is SilverSupper. SilverSupper provides free meals to children ages 0-18 four nights a week through 3 different community centers in town. The volunteer commitment is about an hour an evening and people can volunteer as often as they like. All they need to do is sign up online and then show up to fulfill their commitment. It's a very safe environment and perfect for students!
The online signup is located at silverbackks.ivolunteer.com and there is a sign up for each of the locations around town.
This is a super easy and fast opportunity to gain those required hours?
