Playdate with a Purpose
We are looking for Mothers of young children who are interested in cooking rice or tuna salad for the community supper once a month. We meet in each other's homes on a volunteer basis and bring our young children to play as we chop, cook and enjoy each other's company. Cooking usually occurs the Monday or Tuesday morning before the supper. If interested, please contact Lynn Shavinsky.
Operation Hope Cooking
We cook a meal for 50 people on the first Monday of every month. We cook the same meal of kielbasa with peppers and onions, dessert and coffee. We meet two hours once a month starting at 9:30 am. Children are welcome. There is a financial commitment of $10-$20 a month to purchase ingredients. Volunteers are needed especially during the summer when group members are away on vacation.
