Adults and children of all ages will be welcomed as volunteers at Chimes for Charity’s final events — the sorting, packing and delivery of food baskets to less fortunate families around Obion County on Christmas Eve.
Chimes secretary Lindsay Frilling said she wants the community to know that people of all ages are encouraged to volunteer to help.
“It makes a great time to fulfill community service hours. People can simply show up to help,” she said.
The sorting of items for Chimes baskets will be held Monday starting at 1 p.m. at the Obion County Bus Garage in Troy. The garage is located just off Highway 51, behind Gibson Electric Membership Corp.’s office.
The packing of the baskets is set for Tuesday beginning at 2 p.m. at the bus garage in Troy.
The food baskets will be delivered beginning early Wednesday to families and individuals in need around Union City and Obion County. Anyone who is interested in going on a delivery route may find out the route meeting places and times during the packing activity Tuesday at the bus garage, where the information will be posted, according to Mrs. Frilling.
For more information, call the Chimes office at 885-2098.
Donations may still be mailed to Chimes for Charity, P.O. Box 661, Union City, TN 38281. This year’s Chimes goal of $45,000 will be used to provide food, clothing and toys to less fortunate families throughout the county.
