Torch Club volunteers at Food Bank

Sedro-Woolley Torch Club ‘Tweens hear about the Helping Hands Food Bank.

Torch Club members from the Sedro-Woolley Boys & Girls Club volunteered at the Helping Hands Food Bank on Wednesday, October 10th. Pictured here is Food Bank Director Michael Frazier starting their visit with information about the services the food bank provides for over 500 families each week. The 13 club members were grouped into two teams to bag rice into family-sized portions from giant boxes of frozen rice. Director Michael suggested the teams have a friendly competition and the work started out as a contest, with all the members hustling and bustling through the work, with great attitudes and big smiles. As the boxes filled up with their bags of rice, both teams soon realized their hard work was very helpful to the Food Bank, so their goal became to bag up the entire 2000 pounds of rice, which they accomplished in just 90 minutes! The Torch Club kids enjoyed themselves immensely and learned about an important resource in our community. They are adamant they will become regular volunteers at the Helping Hands Food Bank, so thank you to the Food Bank Staff and Volunteers for allowing them to help.
