The 5th annual Belmont Serves day of community service will be held on Monday morning, Oct. 14, the Columbus Day holiday. An exciting part of this year's event is our partnership with the Joey's Park community build.
Projects include the annual food drive for the Belmont Food Pantry (it is the biggest giving day of the Pantry's year) a conservation project at Rock Meadow, and Joey's Park construction projects. Families can even split their morning between the food drive and Joey's Park; known as the "Pantry/Park Family Combo."
Belmont Serves also makes it easy to donate to the Belmont Food Pantry. Before the event, teams of volunteers will be distributing grocery bags door-to-door with instructions. Just fill up your bag with non-perishable items – canned goods, paper items, toiletries – and leave the bag on your doorstep Monday morning, Oct. 14, before 8:30 a.m. It will be picked up that day and delivered to the food pantry.
On-line registration and additional information are available at the Belmont Serves web-site: www.belmontserves.org
Headquarters this year is the Winn Brook School cafeteria, behind the Joey's Park construction site.
Last year, approximately 350 volunteers of all ages spent the morning making a real difference in Belmont, while also having lots of fun. Join the volunteers and invite friends to come along.
