Heartland Hope Seeks Volunteers for HyVee Stuff a Truck to Help Families

During the third week of October, Heartland Hope Mission (heartlandhopemission.org) will host the Hy-Vee Stuff a Truck event. Volunteers are needed to serve 2.5-hour shifts between Thursday, October 15 and Sunday, October 18, giving shoppers entering Hy-Vee an opportunity to purchase a $5 or $10 bag of food to help feed families in need this holiday season. Sign up to volunteer for Stuff a Truck by emailing info@heartlandhopemission.org.

This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity, as parents with kids of all ages are welcome to serve together and help build awareness about food insecurity in their own neighborhoods. Food items donated and funds raised during this event will go toward providing Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families who rely on the Heartland Hope Mission’s pantry to make ends meet.

Heartland Hope Mission operates one of the largest food pantries in the state but is “More Than a Pantry” because they help families work toward self-sufficiency. They primarily serve working-poor families and those who may be facing a crisis situation with a week’s supply of food, clothing, diapers, job resources, and community referrals.
