Last night I had a great opportunity to volunteer at SHARE. A food distribution for those in need. Located in Monticello, MN SHARE was able to give out enough food last night for 450 families. They are able to help so many by receiving food and money donations from Businesses around the state. Some of the items included last night were propel water, ginger ale, blueberry juice, evaporated milk, grapefruits, combos, assorted cheese products, lettuce, gifts for boys and girls, popcorn, peanuts, candy, soy milk, frozen veggies, energy drinks, tonic water, protein shakes, girl scout cookies, and much more!
I was surprised to see how many families showed up to recieve food, AND how many volunteers were needed to help make sure everything runs smooth. I had a great time handing out food and getting to know some of the volunteers. Here are a couple pictures from the night:
