HELP NEEDED FOR BACK TO SCHOOL PACKET STUFFING!!

Hi everyone,
I am assembling a team to stuff back to school packets for next year and would appreciate your help!
We will be working on campus on June 5-6-7 from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm .  
We may not need three days if lots of you join in!
NOTE: If you have children who need community service hours, they are most welcome and I will gladly sign their forms. The kids who helped last year had fun and were a terrific help.
The sign up below is for work shifts and also for snacks and coffee. Please help if you can. It is actually a lot of fun!!
Thank you!
