New volunteer procedure for Help the Hungry program

June 10, 2009 Leave a comment

All volunteers for Help the Hungry, our monthly soup kitchen service activity, need to print and fill out a waiver form prior to volunteering. This is a new procedure from the soup kitchen where we volunteer. Any questions please contact us.

Volunteers under 18 must bring a completed form signed by their parent the first time they volunteer. If you do not have the waiver form with you, you will not be able to volunteer.

Volunteers 18 and over can bring a completed form with them or fill one out on-site.

Cleanup success!

April 20, 2009 Leave a comment

Many volunteers came out on Saturday – jazaakumullahu khayran to all! A note from the local district councilmember:

“I’m still amazed at how many volunteers we got out for the event, and the whole area looks much better as a result of it.  Please pass on my sincere gratitude to all of the volunteers who came out to help Saturday morning.”
