HOUSE NEWS: Need extra volunteers for Cafe, Brigade this week

Click here to see an entire list of what is happening this week at the Gainesville Catholic Worker.

BREAKFAST BRIGADE VOLUNTEERS? As we announced last week, this will be the final month for the Breakfast Brigade. But we need to know we’ll have enough volunteers for the last 4 Fridays in order to keep it going this month. If you can commit to one or more of these dates (May 11, 18, 25 and June 1), we need to know. So far, we have only 2 people scheduled for this Friday. Send us an email if you want to sign up for one the last BBs.

FARMERS’ MARKET CAFE VOLUNTEERS: We’re also in need of a few morning volunteers this coming Wednesday (tomorrow). We’ll be short three of our regulars, so we need a little extra help between 9:30 and noon. Email us if you can help out!

ITEMS NEEDED: Several people called last week (as they were cleaning out their apartments and moving away from Gainesville or leaving for the summer, etc.) wondering if there are any items we need at the GCW. So in case you’re looking for a place to donate stuff, here’s what we can always use…

For the house:
  • Wood dresser (tall, not wide, we’re limited on room) for a downstairs bedroom
  • Small, wood desk for a downstairs bedroom
  • Cleaning supplies (bleach, etc., especially environmentally-sensitive cleaning supplies)
  • Dish soap
  • Laundry soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Brooms
  • Buckets
  • Good watering can
For our guests, visitors, friends:
  • Bikes
  • Bike locks
  • Caps/hats
  • Socks
  • Blankets/sleeping bags
  • Backpacks
  • Mosquito spray
  • Water bottles
  • Tents
You can leave items by the back side door if no one is at home when you drop off. Have a great week!
