Bean counters wanted to help the hungry | Community Spirit
You may not have to literally count the beans, but the Food Bank of North Alabama would like volunteer sorters to help bag local beans for those in need.
September is Hunger Action Month, and the Food Bank is holding this "Local Bean Drop" as a fun and easy way to contribute and help those who don't have enough to bring to the table.
The Bean Drop will take place at the Space & Rocket Center on Tuesday, September 10, from 7 a.m. until noon. Volunteers can show up at any time during the event and chip in. Organizers recommend you bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen and water.
In case of bad weather, the event may be rescheduled for Wednesday, September 11.
For more information, you can email the Food Bank's Community Relations department or call 256-382-0296.
