On Saturday, February 8, 2014, up to 250 volunteers from throughout our community will come to CUMC to prepare 25,000+ packets of Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS).
* People ages 13-15 are welcome to help in the testing/packing area!
Shifts: 9 am-11am; 11am – 1pm; 1:15 pm–3:15 pm
How Do I Sign Up?
Register by January 27 for the shift(s) you are interested in working!
What is the ORS mix?
What is Required?
Volunteer your time. On Saturday, February 8, at 9 am volunteers will gather and sit at long tables for the first shift. They will work in assembly-line fashion—with each person measuring one of the 4 ingredients into a cup. Another person will pour the cup of ingredients into a self-seal bag, and the next person will seal the bag. After that, the bags will be counted, packaged in sturdy boxes…and be ready for shipment.
Volunteers will sign up for 2-hour shifts (9 am-11am, 11 am-1 pm, and 1:15 pm-3:15 pm). They are welcome to stay longer if they wish. The work is done while seated, refreshments are provided, and free parking will be available. We ask that volunteers filling packets be 16 years old. There will be a number of other tasks that must be done during the day as well so people who are willing may be asked to do those. Volunteers are asked to sign up by January 27. (We can use the help of 13-15 year olds in the testing/packing/counting area.)
We hope you will embrace the privilege of working on this project with great joy. The effort may save the life of a child--and change yours.
