Here's another chance to contribute to one of our most popular organizations that help our community! We'll do food sorting and packing in their warehouse and we hope to have a good crowd of folks.
A few things to understand before volunteering:
√ The work that you will be doing is in the warehouse packing food boxes OR in our cooler sorting and categorizing donated food product. We will be informed by their staff upon arrival.
√ Volunteer jobs are based on their current needs in and around the warehouse. Please come prepared to work in the warehouse or in the cooler (layers are recommended).
√ The warehouse is not climate controlled, so please dress accordingly. Jeans, shorts and t-shirts are acceptable.
√ YOU MUST WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES! Anyone wearing flip-flops or sandals will not be permitted to work the shift.
√ Cold water bottles are available for all volunteers.
√ Second Harvest is not responsible for lost or stolen personal items – please lock valuables in your car.
√ Please arrive on time and enter the building through the front door, remember to sign in and sign out and make a name badge.
√ If you need a letter or record for service hours, please notify the Volunteer Coordinator upon your arrival.

What happens when you put an evangelical minister and a lesbian comedian together in a van? An event for anyone who believes that love and laughter can change the world.
Expect a stand-up comedy show that stumbled upon a revival, and imagine it all happens in a bar. Bakker’s message of love and acceptance, balanced with Becker’s comedy often referred to as "bawdy and bold, served with a slice of southern charm" promises to be a night to remember.
Loosening the Bible Belt will not only serve as an entertaining night, but will also help create awareness for LGBTQ groups fighting the good fight in these southern states. A portion of proceeds from shows will be donated to groups working so all southern citizens have equal rights.
Overcoming the Fear of Death
- When: Wednesday, July 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

Death is inevitable. But what is it?
There are four belief systems about death:
• No belief in the afterlife
• Afraid of heaven or hell
• Looking forward to heaven
• Belief in past lives.
This event will cover overcoming the fear of death through virtue and understanding, fear of the process of dying (pain and suffering), fear of punishment, near-death experiences, fear of eternity, solutions to overcoming the fear of death and all of its related fears.
The speaker is Kelvin Chin, the executive director of Overcoming the Fear of Death Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people improve their quality of life through an approach that is grounded in understanding death. It is grounded in understanding death more clearly and aligning that understanding more accurately with each of the belief systems.
