Hunger Task Force needs our help at the fish cleaning station to filet donated Lake Michigan trout and salmon from generous tournament participants. The fish we process into cleaned filets, gets put into family size portions, put into Ziploc storage bags and onto the refrigerated truck to be delivered on Monday to area families that would not normally get this valuable protein in their diets.
Please share this with fellow club members or if you have someone such as a teenager that needs service hours, or a friend/spouse that wants to help but doesn't clean fish well, they can still help by bringing fish to a cleaner, putting processed filets into storage bags, changing water buckets, putting fish scraps down the incinerator, loading bins onto the refrigerated truck, etc.
Please sign up via email or text (email@example.com or 414-467-6658) for this event as soon as possible if you are able to help the whole 4.5 hourrs or just part of it. "Many hands make light work" and it's great to be outdoors with fellow fisherman for a good cause!
What to bring:
Filet knife (manual or electric) HTF does have some extras on hand
Apron and hand rag (HTF has paper towel but a rag is helpful)
Wear old clothes/shoes you don't mind getting wet or can throw out.
Possible bug lotion for flies
Water is provided for volunteers from HTF, and the concession stand will be open.
