Making CARES Packages

 
Assemble food bags for clients of Nashville CARES. This is an important service that helps people living with HIV/AIDS to manage their lives more effectively and have access to proper nutrition.
 
Volunteers will pack several hundred bags of dry food (canned, boxed, bagged). We are sent this food in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, and pack it every week in order to feed our clients. The clients who receive this food are HIV +, and with limited resources. Often they are older, medically fragile, currently unable to hold a job due to medical conditions, or they have a limited food budget due to medical bills. Our weekly food bags are one of the several nutrition programs designed to keep them happy and healthy! With consistent food, clients are more likely to stay healthy in other ways, including taking their medications.
 
This project is open to volunteers age 16 and older.

This project does not qualify for court ordered community service hours.
