Many people don’t realize that the weekend means no food for many children. Local nonprofit kidsPACK aims to make sure that no child goes hungry—and EMERGE wants to help!
Join fellow members as we pack backpacks with food for homeless children in our community so they have the nutrients they need over the holiday break. It’s a great opportunity to practice servant leadership and connect with other like-minded members.
Make an impact in a child’s life, while building friendships and giving back. Register by Friday, November 29th.
Date: Saturday, December 7, 2019
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: kidsPACK Warehouse, 3725 Frontage Road, North Suite 1, Lakeland, FL 33812
No food or drink is allowed in the warehouse, but water will be provided. Volunteers must dress appropriately and wear close-toed shoes at all times. Your clothes may get dirty, and the weather affects warehouse temperature, so dress comfortably.
**Participants must be 16 years of age or older**
Welcome to EMERGE Lakeland!
As a new member, you may be thinking, “What happens next?” Well, it includes food—free food.
You’re invited to our New Member Luncheon where you’ll not only benefit from the above-mentioned free food, but you’ll also have an opportunity to meet other new members and our leadership team. We’ll discuss things like how EMERGE Lakeland can help you grow your network, develop professionally, create a deeper connection with your community, and how tasty lunch is (we’re sure it will inevitably come up.)
So come hungry and ready to get the most out of your membership!
See you there?!
