The Sedona Women - Community Service Opportunities
The Community Service Committee is excited about our upcoming calendar of events.
We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at one of our Volunteer Events below.
UPCOMING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Your Community Service Committee has been made aware of quite a few needs within the Verde Valley, and there are many opportunities for TSW members to help out. Given that Covid-19 has eliminated most in-person group projects for now, below are a variety of ways we can safely assist in filling community needs.

Our Sedona Community Food Bank Needs Help!
Please help our Sedona Community Food Bank by bringing non-perishable food items to the September 14 meeting. Many local families and fixed income seniors are struggling with hunger, with this year’s food inflation of 10-11% making it difficult to meet their daily needs.
In the past year, the Sedona Community Food Bank has served almost 800 unique families, with roughly 150 families shopping at the pantry each Wednesday and 30 homebound seniors receiving a large box of food delivered to their home every month. New families sign up for food assistance every week. During the past school year, the Food Bank also supplied 2,700 weekend emergency food packs to low-income children in our school system and provided 7,644 pounds of snacks for children in the after school and summer school programs.
At the same time that demand and prices have increased, food and monetary donations to the Food Bank have dropped about 20%. September is Hunger Action Month. Let’s help fill the gap by bringing food donations to the September 14 meeting. The Food Bank particularly appreciates the following items:
Donations can also be dropped off at the Food Bank any Monday, Tuesday or Thursday between 8am and 11am. The Food Bank is located in the lower level of 680 Sunset Dr, Sedona, AZ 86336.
