KidSafe: Call for Volunteers for Food Pick-up and Delivery

During spring break, Crofton House School will be a food distribution hub for KidSafe, and they need your help. KidSafe is looking for volunteers to pick-up lunch or food and supplies from CHS and deliver to a local elementary school. There are also opportunities available to pick up from one of their other food distribution hubs and deliver to a local elementary school. Deliveries are low to no contact. Support from the CHS community has made a significant impact on KidSafe’s ability to provide programming, meals and food supplies to families in need (read the thank you letter from KidSafe). For more information, or to volunteer, please visit the sign-up page.

A huge congratulations goes out to all of the talented cast and crew of Puffs for an amazing production with a timely message: “We're all important … And we're all unimportant. We're all heroes.
