Today’s conversation took place in two parts in two different locations on Saturday morning. In the first segment, we spent some time with Melinda Topham from JustServe.org and a few of the youth volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who came to Winchester CCAP to help pack Thanksgiving boxes, sort diapers and be personal shoppers during CCAP’s Saturday free food giveaway.
In the second segment, Shannon Ganoe & Melinda Topham from JustServe.org were joined by Melinda’s 17-year-old son Zachary, her daughter Heather, and Heather’s friend, Nicole. We talked about the ease of using the JustServe app to find volunteer opportunities, the group gave examples of organizations that are looking for volunteers, and the "kids" told us about their experiences doing service projects.
Melinda also gave details for the Light the World Community Christmas Celebration featuring live music, art, giving, and nativities from around the world. The event will take place on Friday, December 1, 2023 from 6pm - 8:30pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (399 Apple Pie Ridge Road.) The celebration is open to the public and free to attend. Melinda told us about the "giving poster" that will be highlighted at the event. You can view that by clicking here.
