Ingathering 2017



November 18, 8 am – 12 pm

New Schedule this Year: First shift 8 – 9:45 am, Worship for all at 10 am, Second shift 10:15 am – 12 pm.  (The break in the middle allows the AR Foodbank to reset the amount of food for volunteers to sort.)

T-shirts and sweatshirts will be sold this year to raise money for additional food and to have more activities for the volunteers.

Please Note:  Youth group leaders will not be able to sign the volunteer liability waiver forms for their youth.  AR Foodbank requires signatures from a legal parent/guardian for all youth under the age 18.
