United Way Seeking Help For Packing Food

9/22/17 – The United Way is looking for volunteers to help pack 50-thousand meals for those in need. The Chapters in Dodge and Fond du Lac counties are teaming up tomorrow for their 12th Annual Day of Caring in Waupun to stock local food pantries. Susan Jentz, the Executive Director of the United Way of Dodge County says this year they are packaging protein and vitamin fortified cinnamon apple oatmeal and tomato basil pasta. Jentz says the packages fill a vital need when food supplies are low during lean times of the year. Because the packages have a two-year shelf live they will be available year round for pantries to hand out as needed. The Day of Caring food packing event is being held tomorrow at the Union Youth Center in Waupun on Jackson Street. Pre-registration is requested at volunteerdodge.net.
