By: Opportunity Enterprises Last Updated: July 24, 2015

OE-Pack-a-Thon-2011Opportunity Enterprises is seeking a large group of volunteers for its 18th annual Packathon event. This year’s Packathon is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th at OE’s main facility, located at 2801 Evans Avenue in Valparaiso. The volunteer event runs from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, or until packing is complete.

800 volunteers gather together annually to help OE pack 45,000 runner bags for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. This is a great opportunity for scout troops, corporate teams, youth groups, sports teams, school clubs and organizations, or friends and family to serve their community and earn service hours. Volunteers 8 years of age and older are encouraged to come out for high energy fun, a live DJ, and free breakfast and lunch!

Volunteers are required to pre-register at oppent.org/pack2015 and are asked to arrive at 8:00am on the day of the event and stay until all packing is complete.

For questions about the event, please contact Liz Metts, Director of Development, at 219-464-9621 Ext 333 or liz.metts@oppent.org.
