LOAVES & FISHES MINISTRIES, INC.
Volunteer Recognition -
February 2019 CALENDAR (download
We want to thank the youth volunteer teams who have become regular presences in our soup kitchen each month. We now have teams here from Westminster School and from Kingswood Oxford School regularly to serve in the dining room. These students take time in the middle of their school days to interact with our clients, serving the meal to clients who love it! We know how important it is to implement a sense of community service at an early age and we are proud that these schools have come to us with an equal sense of that mission. In addition, we can't forget the incredible holiday offering that Simsbury High School Cabaret Singers offer to our community each year, both in talent and in time and financial support. These students truly offer hope for a better tomorrow through their support of our programs today! Thank you to each and every one of you.
Please remember that when you are providing food for the meal to include the coffee and tea as well. Clients love their coffee and tea and we have run out of coffee, especially, numerous times.
VOLUNTEER LISTS -
Thank you to all who have signed in to our Volunteer Sign-In binder. This is most helpful, as we must have the names and addresses of all volunteers. This is a legal matter that is required by State regulations. We must be able to contact volunteers if needed. If any of your volunteers are concerned about receiving solicitations in the mail, please advise them that the maximum number of items mailed from us each year is 4. Many new individuals join groups during the year and many have volunteered for years so it is wonderful to have contact information for as many of you as possible. Those of you volunteering in the soup kitchen, please keep it up! Volunteer Sign-In book remains in the dining room; you need only fill it out once. Please share other names via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax: 249-2871, or put them in the Volunteer Sign-In book. Many thanks.
The Walk Against Hunger - Saturday, April 27!!!
The 36th Annual Walk Against Hunger is Saturday, April 27th. Please note the change in day and month! Many of you have supported us in the past, and more than ever we need you to consider putting together a team to sponsor us in the walk this year. More next month! This is Loaves & Fishes' major fundraiser, and has become more important as fewer funds become available for food programs. We truly need you to join our effort.
