6th Grade Meals on Wheels Service Hours Opportunity

Does your child need service hours? We would like to offer your family the opportunity to participate in a unique service project. Hastings partners with LifeCare Alliance to deliver Meals on Wheels. Our adopted route lines up perfectly with the 6th grade lunch time. You can pick up the food, then pick up your child, and deliver the meals together. Your child will be excused if they are a few minutes late back to class. Each family can choose their delivery dates, and most families sign up for one or two dates in a month. Your child earns service hours, and has the opportunity to spend extra time with you doing good work for others. Training will be provided.
