HOUSE NEWS: Boy, do we need some help this week!
John is at the house by himself this week so scheduling volunteers ahead of time is more important than ever! Please let us know if you are coming to help so we can make sure we’re covered at the right times! In addition to the projects and timeslots listed on “this week” there are also some special volunteer opportunities this week:
CUTTING GREENS: A lot of collard greens were donated this week and we need help processing them so they won’t go to waste. Tuesday during the coffee house would be an ideal time, from 1pm to 3pm. Also, if anyone is willing to help cook these, we can freeze them for later use.
LOOKING FOR SOME SOUP: Kelli is visiting her parents this week (her father is not well) and will not be cooking the soup. We usually cook up about eight gallons. If you are willing to prepare a gallon or so of soup, please let us know. We can provide a very simple (and tasty) recipe for lentil soup or you can cook up a batch of your own favorite soup. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can help out in this way.
BAKING BREAD: We will also need bread for the cafe. John can cook up a batch of 12, but if someone is willing to bake six-eight additional loaves at home, it would be a huge help!
Last week was a hectic, but exciting week. Michael Stoops from the National Coalition for the Homeless stayed with us during the early part of the week, followed by a wonderful group of young people from the Trail of Dreams. We also had a full house at the Cafe. The coffee house on Tuesday and Thursday is still a work in progress while we wait and see if this is something folks want. Meanwhile, the smaller numbers at those have afforded us the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee with people as they come, which has been very nice.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you can help out this week!
Have a great week. We hope to see you!
