Dec. 2018 - Holiday Get Together & Bridging (members only)

12/10/2018 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm

Holiday Get Together and Kitchen Pack Drive to benefit Bridging

A Kitchen Pack Drive is a fun way to collect or purchase the necessary household kitchen items used to prepare and serve food. Think about the type of utensils you use to prepare meals every day: spoon, spatula, vegetable peeler, or can opener, for example. Imagine cooking a meal without any of these essential kitchen gadgets. It wouldn't be an easy task. A Kitchen Pack provides necessary tools to cook, bake, and serve healthy meals.

BASIC Kitchen Pack includes:

  • can opener
  • dish towel/cloth
  • mixing spoon
  • spatula

BONUS items may be added:

  • dish scrubber
  • hot pad
  • ladle
  • measuring spoons/cups
  • pizza slicer
  • vegetable peeler
  • whisk

Start collecting today!

Success Group

Location is chosen by the volunteer host for the particular meeting.
