Casselberry Elementary - Mentoring and Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

Dana Kobosky

Exciting things have happened with the summer flunch program at Casselberry Elementary!  The summer program which included feeding homeless and/or low income children throughout the summer has now been extended into the school year.  The Casselberry Taskforce has obtained a portable trailer which has been converted through donations from the Casselberry Home Depot into a permanent food pantry for those in need living within the Casselberry Elementary community.  So much has been accomplished already but we need YOU to help keep the program growing and successful!

Want to be a part of this program that is transforming a local community?  There are two great ways that you can be involved: 

1) Volunteer at the Pantry - Volunteers are specifically needed on Mon, Wed and Thurs from 8 to 10 a.m.  and from 3 to 6 p.m. on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Friday. Volunteers will assist with stocking shelves with food donations and handing out food to families in need.  For more information on volunteering please contact Charlene at

2) Become a Mentor - This is an opportunity for a caring, committed adult to change the life of a student in need through one-on-one mentoring sessions.  Volunteers will spend 30-45 min once weekly (day and time is flexible)  on campus building a meaningful relationship with a student at Casselberry Elementary.  The mentor and child will meet once weekly throughout the school year.  Mentors will focus on helping the child with goal setting, academics/tutoring and positive values and behaviors.  Background check is required of all mentors.  For more information on becoming a mentor please contact Charlene at

We hope that you will prayerfully consider becoming regularly involved with serving in this amazing community effort!
