August through May, the Orchard Knob Middle School (OKMS) distributes 50 food boxes to 50 families that are in need of additional food items to get through the month. The boxes are mostly filled by contributions made by TVA. The school has asked our parish to supplement the food boxes with one large jug of nutritional fruit juice. We are looking for two volunteers each month to purchase the juice (costing anywhere between $175 to $200) and deliver to the Middle School the day before the date of distribution. Juice should be delivered during school hours. Ideally, we will have enough volunteers that this would be a once a year commitment. It does take a bit of strength to purchase and deliver that many jugs, so keep that in mind. This is such a worthwhile opportunity for our parish and will make a difference in so many families that need additional support.
