Wilson Area LINCS Family Center is looking for volunteers for our community garden and food pantry.
Community Garden tasks may include planting, weeding, watering, picking ripe vegetables, light repair on raised beds, and fall clean up. All produce is harvested for our food pantry during the summer and early autumn months.
Food Pantry volunteers are needed to pack items in boxes, deliver curbside and load into cars, assemble weekend meal bags for students and break down cardboard boxes. The pantry serves almost 550 Northampton County residents a year.
No experience is needed and training is available for both of these positions. If you would like to know more, contact the LINCS Family Center at 484-373-6200 or at LINCS@wilsonareasd.org.
The LINCS Family Center is hosting a Gift Card Bingo on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. (doors open at 11 a.m.) in the All Purpose Room of the Wilson Area Intermediate School, 2400 Firmstone Street, Easton. All proceeds will benefit LINCS programs which include the food pantry and weekend meals bags for students.
The event is open to the public and the cost at the door is $25. Discounted advance tickets can be purchased from April 1 to 29 for $20 on the LINCS website at www.lincsfamilycenter.org. The gift card bingo features 20 regular games, an earring raffle and a fire pit raffle, as well as food for sale. Extra books will be available for purchase at the event.
