Volunteers Needed For Food Packaging Event

United Way chapters in Dodge and Fond du Lac counties are teaming up this Saturday for a food packaging event. It’s hoped the 150 volunteers for the event will be able to put together 50,000 packages from 10 a.m. to noon at the Union Youth Center in Waupun.  Fond du Lac Area United Way Executive Director Amber Kilawee notes the food is more than nutritious. The food contains vitamins, minerals and proteins that will fill a family up. The food will be distributed evenly among the counties, but they still have a need for volunteers to put the packages together. They need about a dozen volunteers to man a table. Anyone who would like to volunteer can call the United Way at (920) 921-7010. The outreach food packaging event will benefit nine different types of food pantries in Dodge and Fond du Lac counties.
