VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION PICNIC
We invite all of our volunteers to join us for our annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic! Come for the great food, music by Suburban Hearts, fun, and camaraderie! The picnic will be held on the street in front of AFAC, 2708 S. Nelson Street, rain or shine. Spouses, partners, and children are welcome! RSVP here.
Have a tasty pumpkin recipe? Participate in our second annual Pumpkin Cooking Contest.
You’ve probably seen the shelves of canned pumpkin when you come to volunteer. Let’s have fun with them. Please cook your favorite pumpkin recipe (soup, bread, cookies, cheesecake, etc) and bring it to the picnic. Our Volunteers of the Year will serve as judges. The winner will receive bragging rights and a fabulous prize. Contest Rules.
