REMINDER: When serving in the dining room,
health department guidelines require everyone to wear a hair net or a
baseball hat. We have hats available for you to use. If you prefer, you can
bring in your own hat from home.
Any volunteer, who would like to receive this notice via email, should leave his/her email address on the volunteer sign in sheet. We will be more than happy to add you to the mailing list each month.
The Walk Against Hunger
The 35th Annual Walk Against Hunger is Saturday, May 5,
2018--this is a change in day, as well as a change in venue. This year the
Walk takes place in Dunkin' Donuts Park! Loaves and Fishes' goal for this
year is to raise $32,000 of which we will receive $25,600 (the other $6,400
goes to Foodshare).
We have been very successful in enlisting teams
would love more. We'd love to have you join the list. Just call us, and we
will send you all the information and give you guidance along the way. Call
Alyce and Allison.
If you or someone you know can't form a team but
would like to walk and sponsor us, please let us know. We will send a
registration form and they can walk as a member of the Loaves and Fishes
Team. You don't even have to walk!- you can be a "walker in spirit."Lastly, if you can't walk but would like to sponsor a walker, send us a
check made out to "Walk Against Hunger", and we will add your contribution
to the Loaves and Fishes Team.
Bette Glickman from
Congregation Kol Haverim. Bette died in February but had been here to help
in the dining room just 2 months before. That was typical of Bette's desire
to help others all her life. She still captained a team for the Walk at
Avery Heights last year. No matter what she was asked to do she'd say "I'll
give it a try!" We will miss her wonderful caring, loving attitude. Bette
was a special friend who will not be forgotten, but truly missed.
