“Thousands of people in the Miami Valley don’t know where their next meal is coming from, according to a new report from the nonprofit group Feeding America.”
-Dayton Daily News; May 4, 2017
Food insecurity has hit the Miami Valley hard. This year, Generation Dayton, the chamber’s young professionals organization will focus their volunteer efforts on fighting this problem during the group’s biggest outreach day of the year. Generation Dayton Day gives young professional volunteers the opportunity to ‘Get out and Give back’ at area non-profits. After a day of giving back, participants will celebrate with an after-party which includes food, drinks, and raffle prizes for volunteers.
Nonprofit organizations Gen D will be serving:
- House of Bread
- Dayton Food Bank
- Ronald McDonald House
- United Rehabilitation Services
- East End
- The Victory Project
The Food Drive:
Each volunteer should bring a canned food item to the Kroc Center in order to receive their Generation Dayton Day shirt. A special prize will be awarded to the one who brings in the MOST food items.
The After Party:
Those who are not able to participate in the volunteer activities are welcome to join the after-party, which is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm at Old Scratch Pizza. If you’re just joining us for the celebration, no registration is required.
