In honor of Hunger Action Month, Chatham OutReach Alliance (CORA) is hosting a three-day service project on September 7th, 8th, and 9th. Thanks to the inspiration and partnership with ML 23 CLT, a volunteer group working with Gratitude Training that is dedicated to building better communities, CORA is going to be buzzing with lots of activity the second weekend in September with their Legacy Project. This three-part project includes a community-wide food drive, a CORA facility and grounds refurbishing project, and a Chatham OutReach Alliance community day with tours, educational presentations, and volunteer projects.
Beginning on August 28th, various partners will be collecting food to stock the shelves of CORA’s Food Pantry. This includes local businesses, grocery stores, and churches. Here is the complete list of drop off locations. In addition, for a complete list of most needed items, check out this LIST.
CORA Facility and Grounds Refurbishing Project
On September 7th and 8th, CORA will be hosting nearly 50 volunteers who will be giving their time to help CORA look and feel brand new again. Projects will include deep cleaning, painting, landscaping, and constructing new compost and food waste receiving bins.
Community Education Day
On Sunday, September 9th, CORA will welcome all members of our community for a day of gratitude, service, and education. From 1pm – 3pm, there will be opportunities to tour the Pantry, learn about volunteering opportunities, and participate in informational presentations and activities on topics including gardening/harvesting, reducing food waste, and the benefits of composting and recycling.
