About the event

Please read the details below, BEFORE signing up for the event.

1. For our Holiday event, prep will include both meals and gifts. Depending on the meal and the amount of volunteers, we will spend about 2 hours assembling meals, sorting, organizing, and wrapping gifts. Prep usually runs from 10:00am to 11:30am THERE IS A SEPARATE SIGN UP FOR MEAL DELIVERY.

2. Delivery:Those wishing to solely help distribute meals will meet us at the prep location at 11:00am and be prepared to drive to designated locations. At this time most volunteers will be driving to the families we have sponsored for the year. All locations are in the Greater Charlotte area (includes Fort Mill) but are typically within a 10 mile radius of the prep location.

Time Commitment: This is dependent on how many volunteers we have and how many meals we need to prep. We typically plan for 1.5 hours.

Safety: Masks are required to be worn by all. We will also require hair nets and gloves depending on if we are directly handling food.

Important Things to Remember:

    - Wear clothing and shoes that you are comfortable moving in and getting dirty. Though not required, we do recommend wearing a Moms Making Moves shirt.

    - Though all events are planned and thought through, please be prepared for some organized chaos.

    - Depending on the month there may be season appropriate items to sort and organize as well.
