Don't Miss United Way’s Biggest Volunteer Project Of The Year, PackaPalooza

Calling all volunteers! We're looking for a few more awesome people who want to join us for all the fun at this year's PackaPalooza! If you haven't registered to participate yet, make sure you do so ASAP so you can grab one of these last remaining spots! This is a great project for people of all ages, from kids who need volunteer hours for school to seniors looking to get out and do something fun. 

PackaPalooza is a high-energy pack-a-thon where over 300 volunteers work together to pack over 100,000 meals for people in need right here in Lake County. There's music, dancing, friendly competitions, and most importantly a room full of people looking to give back to their community. Whether you've participated in the past or your a PackaPalooza newbie this is a project you don't want to miss.

PackaPalooza takes place Friday, August 10th from 9am to noon a the Avalon Manor in Merrillville. To register please click here.

In addition to packers we are also still looking for volunteers to help as line leaders and heavy lifters. Our line leaders and heavy lifters are the rock stars of the event as they keep everything running smoothly and keep the packing stations stocked. It is recommended that heavy lifters be able to lift at least 50 pounds. If you are interested in being a line leader click here. If you are interested in being a heavy lifter click here.
