The Food Bank of Northern Nevada says registration is now open for two upcoming summer volunteer events. 

The organization has hundreds of thousands of pounds food that is in need of sorting due to the Stamp out Hunger Letter Carriers Food Drive in May and other generous donations. 

The two volunteer events are as follows:  

CHRISTMAS IN JULY: WEDNESDAY, JULY 25 | 5:30-8PM

Santa hats optional, but participants will definitely want to take part in the Ugly Tank Top contest. Volunteers can sign up for either of these sessions by visiting the volunteer page at fbnn.org

SCHEELS SUMMER OF SERVICE ALL-AGES VOLUNTEER EVENT:  SATURDAY, JULY 14, 11 AM- 1 PM.  
All attendees will have a chance to WIN a Family Fun Day 5-pack from Wild Island, including water park and attraction tickets. If you'd like to help, visits the events page to RSVP. 

If volunteers would like to participate but cannot make one of the three themed events, volunteer sessions are available Monday through Saturday at the following times:  

Tuesday – Thursday: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. | 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. | 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
