West Wilson Big Brothers of Mt. Juliet needs your help with Christmas activities.
Collections of donated food and toys will be picked up on Friday, Dec. 12 at area schools and local businesses, said Owen Gleaves, one of the members of the organization. He said they will meet at the Kroger parking lot at Highway 70 and Mt. Juliet Road at 7:30 a.m. and will leave en route at 8 a.m.
Help is needed to follow trucks and help with loading, and help is needed in packing food boxes starting at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 12. Boxes will be delivered to needy families early Saturday morning, Dec. 13, starting at 7.
Volunteers are also needed to help in the Mother’s Toy Store beginning at 7 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 13. The store opens to the public for mothers to shop for their children from 1 until 4 p.m. Packing of food, delivery and the Mother’s Toy Store activities will be at Mt. Juliet Middle School next to Sonic on Mt. Juliet Road (the former Mt. Juliet High School).
This is a good opportunity for parents to teach their children about helping those less fortunate,” Gleaves said. “If you can volunteer for any of these events, we ask that you show up at the locations given and ask for a Big Brother for assistance.”
