Freeze it Forward (food bank)
The Freeze-It-Forward initiative was started for the purpose of supporting College families walking through difficult or challenging seasons, by providing them with home-cooked meals and meal hampers. The Freeze-It-Forward initiative has touched, helped, and encouraged many families in need of support, and we are looking to continue to bless others in a BIG way through this initiative.
We are currently seeking a handful of volunteers in Junior, Middle, and Senior School to cook or provide meals in order to stock the Freeze-It-Forward fridge at the College. No Masterchef skills are required – just a serving heart and willingness to help College families in need of support.
If you’re interested in providing meals for the Freeze-It-Forward Initiative, please contact:
Volunteers are needed to make a difference in Junior School classrooms. Whether you can offer your time on a regular basis or just occasionally, your presence can make a significant impact on your child’s class. Jemma Robbins – email@example.com (Junior School EA)
