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.
Get READY! It’s Marathon Time!
Once again, Sedona Women will be staffing a tent at the finish line of the Sedona Half Marathon, this year the morning of Saturday, February 5. This fun and exciting opportunity involves cheering on runners when they start, and handing out finish line medals to runners as they cross the finish line. Needed are ten women for the first shift –from 7am to 10:30 am, and six women for the second from 10:30 am to 2 pm. This is an outside event, and though a small tent is furnished, plan to dress warmly for the morning.

February Diaper Drive!
Because our January meeting will now be held online on Zoom, please bring diapers to the February meeting! The Sedona Food Bank needs baby diapers, especially sizes 3 – 5, baby lotion and soap, and adult lotion and soaps. If you cannot make it to the February meeting, or you have diapers purchased that you wish to donate right away, please drop off diapers and related products to the Sedona Food Bank, 680 Sunset Drive, Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am to noon.

In February, the Sedona Women are needed to staff the See’s Candy Wagon in the Bashas’s parking lot for Valentine’s Day sales. Needed are volunteers January 28 - February 14. Monday - Saturday 11 - 4 and Sunday 12 - 3.

Thank you to all who have volunteered to staff the See’s Candy Wagon over the holidays. Our Food Bank counts on your help.
Food Bank Donations
The grocery donations you drop off at the Sedona Food Bank on Tuesday mornings no longer need to contain an assortment of foods. Whatever non-perishable items you select will be gratefully accepted. Every month TSW will suggest a couple of specific items for you to include in your donation if possible. These are things that are always in demand.
This month, special needs are for single peanut butters and shelf stable milk. Jif makes the peanut butter in a small size similar to a single serving. The shelf stable milk is made by Horizon or Hersey. Both items can be found at Walmart, Fry's, or any grocery store. These two items are used weekly in our backpack program and the Food Bank supplier cannot get them at this time. Also, Progresso soups, crackers, nuts, granola and granola bars are wonderful to receive as a donation.
The donations by our members are making a crucial difference in the ability of the Food Bank to provide for those in need. Please bring your bag to the driveway at the far side of the church building at 680 Sunset Road any Tuesday, between 7:30 am and noon.
