Volunteers needed for Lunch Prep
A medical emergency has interrupted the work of 2 of our faithful 3rd Fridays walk in lunch prep volunteers. The project is packing bag lunches for downtown citizens in need. Two volunteers are needed for the 3rd Friday in March (19th), April (16th) and May (21st). The time commitment is 1-1 ½ hours starting at 9am. We wear masks and work under covid safe guidance. Thank you for considering this outreach. Centenary has been instrumental in this mission for over 40 years and have not missed a beat in the pandemic.
If you are able to help one or all of these dates,
please contact Mary E Vetrovec.
