1. NOVEMBER 15TH, 11AM
GROCERY BAGS FOR SENIORS: Meet fellow Gibbons parents at the warehouse to sort and pack fresh produce into individual grocer bags. Once packed, we will deliver all the bags to a senior living community (location TBA) and will walk door to door to deliver the produce. It is a wonderful way to connect with seniors, deliver healthy produce and say some kind words! This job typically takes 1-2 hours and is not dirty, nor physically demanding.

TEACHING FARM HELPER: Meet fellow Gibbons parents at the IFFS's vegetable and animal farm to assist with that day's chores. Work could range from harvesting vegetables, to prepping the fields, to working the compost bins, to assisting with the farm animals (think chickens, goats, etc.) If you like farm life, this is a great morning!
