SC4K Logo(Tuesday, August 18, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm)

Sign-up extended to Aug 15th!

Archivists!  Your organizational expertise is needed!  Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K) buys pallets of clothes that need to be counted, sorted, and packed into smaller boxes for its distribution partners.  Packing days are a fun opportunity that involves some physical labor, including:

  • Making boxes.
  • Opening and unpacking boxes.
  • Breaking down boxes.
  • Packing boxes.
  • And then starting the process all over again!
