HugPacks – A Way to Give Youth Entering Foster Care a Hug!
If you are fully vaccinated and want to help support youth who are about to enter the foster care system with very little, if anything, to call their own, do we have a day of community service for you!! Having only been able to do one of our four yearly packings to date due to the coronavirus, we will complete in one day , on June 3, the remaining three packings. Each shift will be held at the Compton YouthBuild facility, 1108 N. Oleander Ave., Compton, CA 90222, about a 25 min. drive from Long Beach.
Sign up for one shift, or stay for additional shifts – it’s up to you!
Shift one: 9:30 - 11:30 am, 3rd - 5th grade
Shift two: 12:00 - 2 pm, Middle school
Shift three: 2:30 - 4:30 pm, High school
Note that all precautions will be in place: gloves and masks (we will have some supplies on hand), temperatures taken, and release form signed, and we will pack in a ventilated, 5000 square foot room. There will be a half hour between shifts so that supplies for the next grade level can be appropriately placed on the tables which allow for 6 ft of distancing. If you decide to stay for multiple shifts, please bring your own lunch; however, we will have on hand bottles of water and individually wrapped snack items. We welcome only vaccinated volunteers for one shift or more.
Please email Linda Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (657) 235-2511 to say you will volunteer or for more information. Let’s make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable youth!
