Volunteer Opportunity!!! You have an opportunity right here in southwest Iowa to make a huge impact on global hunger and all it takes is two hours of your time. Just give two hours, either Friday morning, Oct 13, or Saturday morning or afternoon, Oct 14, to pack over 100,000 meals that will be shipped to starving children all over the world. Please watch the video. Then go to the Feed My Starving Children website to register for the "Southwest Iowa MobilePack" (it's happening in Harlan, Iowa) in the time slot that will work for you. You absolutely won't regret it. My 10 year old has done this three times and each time she is sad when the shift is over because it's such fun. Let me know if you have any questions!

Registration is now open for families to register for the On Their Own and OK program, offered on May 11th, 18th, and 25th at the Shelby County Extension and Outreach office in Harlan.
U.S. Census data shows that 7 million school-age children across the nation are left home alone after school and during the summer months.
Youth left home by themselves without self-care skills may find ways to occupy their time that parents or guardians may not support. Some young people may truly be fearful of staying home alone without adequate education from parents, teachers, and community partners. On Their Own and OK builds skills in youth, as well as incorporates ways for parents or guardians in the home to support this step toward independence.
On Their Own and OK is designed for children in fourth through sixth grade. Families can register their children at https://iastate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0jrw1gJufOi2YiG . There is no cost to attend, registration is required. Limited space is available.
Questions? Please contact Mary at Shelby County Extension and Outreach at [email protected] OR 755-3104.
