As important it is to collect donations, it’s just as important to sort them so they can be sent out to where they are needed. For an activity last Thursday, Friend 2 Friend helped sort cans of food that was donated from a school fundraiser. We helped sort the canned foods so they could be sent out to different schools in Salt Lake for lunches. Upon arrival to the warehouse, volunteers from Friend 2 Friend were instructed to sort the collected donations into different containers such as veggies, beans, snacks, etc.
Because we had such a great turnout and the warehouse was well organized, we were able to sort hundreds of cans in just over two hours! It was fun to be with friends while sorting donation, seeing the progression throughout and what was accomplished.
