Hope Dining Room volunteers needed Monday, May 15, 2023

posted in: Outreach, Service | 0

Dear Families of St. Thomas’s and St. Nicholas,

Monday, May 15, 2023, is our opportunity to serve at Hope Dining Room. Guests at Hope are now “dining in” instead of grabbing a lunch and leaving, so we have 2 different short shifts for which you can volunteer. The cooking shift goes from 10 AM – 11:45 and the serving shift goes from 11:45 – 1:30.   

If you’d like to help, please bring a ball cap and an apron. We would LOVE to see you! All of this takes place at the  Kingswood Methodist Church kitchen on Marrows Road in Brookside Park, Newark. It is a team effort, lots of fun and it makes you feel so good to feed people who really appreciate it.

Please volunteer for the things we need for the meal. IF you are donating one of those items, you can bring it to St. Thomas’s, Monday – Thursday between 9 and noon, OR when you come to church on Sunday. If this doesn’t fit into your schedule, give me a call or text and I will pick it up at your door.

IMPORTANT announcement: Hope Dining Room has been in existence for 40 years  and is having a 40th Anniversary Party (picnic) on May 19, 2023, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the home of Shelley Hastings. Anyone who loves Hope is invited.  A $10 donation at the door would be great, but not required, as a small fundraiser for Hope. IF you’d like to come, please RSVP to me at mad1240@comcast.net.
