Giant food drive Oct 2015

The Giant Food Drives are back and we need your support!  Help collect food at Montgomery County Giant Grocery Stores over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend!  
Gather family, friends, clubs, work teams, scouting groups, faith-based groups, sports teams, etc. to help your neighbors in need and honor the service of Dr. King.
Saturday and Sunday, January 16th & 17th
11am - 2pm, AM Shift
2pm - 5pm, PM Shift
11am - 5pm, Full Day Shift
We will send you an email confirming availability for your preferred store, date, and time. 
Please note: This volunteer opportunity requires a firm commitment due to the limited number of volunteer spaces available for each shift.  Please double check your calendar to confirm your availability prior to registering.   
Due to limited space at the stores, Giant requests that we limit the number of volunteers, at any one time, to a maximum of 5 (including the adult supervisor).  At least one adult supervisor (21 or older) needs to be present at all times.  Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  We typically assign one Giant store to a family or group but two smaller groups may be assigned together.
