Shortly after Covid began, 60 of Rochester's homeless, found living in places unfit for human habitation, were relocated to a vacant area hotel. Potlucks are being provided by volunteers every evening. Individuals are needed for these meals four nights a week. Drop off starts at 5:15pm. Serving begins at 6pm. To volunteer, simply sign up, by clicking on the link in the chat to a Facebook page to sign up or by calling Michael Gill at the number provided. All are required to be masked and socially distanced and to keep location of the hotel private. Meal sign-up is on the FB page, "HOMES 4 the HOMELESS
" . If you are not on FB, or wish to plan for a group instead of individuals, contact Michael Gill: (585) 413-7879. Provided by: Lois Baum, Homeless Heartbeats SJC
