Whitfield's Community Service Club is encouraging the school community to participate in the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center's World Food Day Commemoration on October 15-16, 2010. Volunteers are needed to help package more than 200,000 rice/soy protein meals for the starving in sub-Saharan Africa. After the packaging, volunteers will tour the Danforth Center and its greenhouses and learn about long-term health and hunger strategies (and meet those who address this challenge every day).
If you would like to volunteer along side Whitfield students and parents, please register for either the 1:00 pm or 4:00 pm time slot on October 16. If those slots are filled, please select another time that afternoon. To register, please visit:www.brownpapertickets.com/event/120492. Volunteers are asked to contribute $15 per student and $20 per adult to the Danforth Center to help cover the cost of ingredients, packaging and international shipping.
Madison Beckmann '11, Jourdan Blackwell '12, Isabella Chiodini '14, Ava Prokop '11 and Molly Smith '14 were selected to the Danforth Center's Junior Board and helped plan this event.
