Staff Appreciation

To our Awesome Fry Staff Appreciation & Hospitality Volunteers,

We've put together a sign-up genius for our March & April plans - please review & sign up if you're willing & able. We have some fun things planned for the back half of the year/Spring! (To note - we will have a separate plan with donation & volunteer opportunities for National Staff Appreciation Week, which is May 6-10).

As noted, all items that are non-perishable can be dropped off to Jess' house (3412 Brooksedge Avenue) at your convenience. Drop off dates for all "fresh" items are noted.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your generosity!
