15th ANNUAL COMMUNITY ROUND-UP Drop Off
"Join the Community Drop Off (AKA Round Up) this year! It's a Neighborhood Thing, and our neighbors need us more than ever before."
It may look a little different, but the Community Drop Off will be Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 9:00-12:00. Groups made up of families will be stationed at CRHS to unload and pack your donations to be delivered to our local food banks. During these hours, community members are encouraged to bring any donations of food, toiletries, paper goods, pet supplies, grocery gift cards, or cash to CRHS and drop them off to our volunteers. If you would rather mail in a monetary or gift card donation, please send them to Strong Middle School (address below). All checks should be made out to the Local Wellness Coalition. This community project has been an annual Durham and Middlefield event for the last 14 years and has filled both towns’ food pantries each year. Additional food items are also delivered to the Amazing Grace food pantry in Middletown . Last year 15,022 food items and over $4,663.00 in cash and gift cards were collected!
Families can register for one hour time slots to volunteer through Parent Square, by Wednesday, November 25, 2020. In accordance with our local Health Department, we will follow all safety guidelines. All volunteers must work only with their immediate family, and an adult must be present. Unlike the past, the number of volunteer slots will be limited in order to ensure socially distant work stations. Volunteers must also wear a mask at all times.
This cross-age project, co-sponsored by the Local Wellness Coalition and Youth & Family Services, provides an opportunity for students and adults to work together and experience the true spirit of the holiday season. Now, more than ever, our neighbors need our support! For further information, please contact Rebecca Sinusas Co-chair at the Strong Guidance Department (860-349-7255).
