Oxford-Orion FISH is in desperate need of volunteers to collect food donations at this year’s Renaissance Festival in order to restock its pantry and feed those in need. All the food goes directly to FISH’s pantry shelves.
Volunteers will be expected to collect food donations from festival-goers, sort and box the items on site, then load them all into a truck bound for Oxford. As always, it’s been a busy summer for FISH as unlike the rest of us, hunger doesn’t take a vacation.
In June, the group provided 15,240 pounds of food to 187 households consisting of 450 individuals. FISH gained 13 new clients that month. July, FISH gave 14,394 pounds of food to 178 households consisting of 455 individuals and gained 17 new clients.
Those interested in volunteering to help FISH at the Renaissance Festival are encouraged to call 248-628-3933 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
