Will your church be one of them?

It’s really getting close now! You don’t want to miss this. JULY 6-13 IS THE WEEK. Faith-based groups are beginning to reserve their times to volunteer. Will your church be one of them?

The once-a-year Full On Faith Week is time set aside by the North Texas Food Bank for faith-based groups to take over all their volunteer spots—and that is a lot of volunteers! The time slots on Saturdays fill up first. It’s even better if you have a group that can come on a weekday. Shifts are 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. If your church is in one of the counties served by NTFB, then this is your opportunity! Sign up now if your church is in Collin, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Lamar, Navarro, or Rockwall counties. Go to www.ntfb.org and click on the volunteer tab.

Your volunteer hours can be credited to an NTFB-affiliated food pantry in your neighborhood. Just put the name of the pantry on the card when you sign in. Each hour provides $1.80 credit toward that pantry’s future purchase of food.

Just as a reminder, the requirements for volunteering are:
