Be sure to mark your calendars for the South Oakland Shelter program this year, October 14-21 (a week earlier than in past years) at Congregational Church of Birmingham.
Ruth Turner will continue to serve as a general Coordinator, organizing and recruiting volunteers before and supervising the program and its guests during that week. We provide approximately 1/3 of all the food and supplies for about 30 guests, as well as the first Sunday Soup/Chili and Salad welcome dinner. Northminster is also responsible for cooking and serving 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts during the week.
It would be a true blessing if someone was able to help in organizing/supervising in the kitchen for those meals for which we’re solely responsible. Please contact Ruth if you think you can help – even if only partially – in these tasks, and she can tell you exactly what they entail.
