The UCO Drop-in-Center is a community center for homeless people and the working poor in down town Long Beach. It provides a haven from the weather and the harsh conditions of the streets on Sunday afternoons. For full details check out http://www.urbancommunityoutreach.org/dic.
This opportunity is for Sunday food service. THIS IS FOR EVERY SUNDAY (EXCEPT FOR THE MONTH OF JULY, 2011). The volunteer day is 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You may join for a couple of hours or stay for the day.
THE GREATEST VOLUNTEER NEED IS FROM 12 NOON TO 4PM. Food prep starts at 8 am, and that is also when there is great need for help.
If you are interested just show up and check in with with Brad Lara-Gagne ([masked] or [masked]).
PARKING: Park in the lot at Cedar & 3d in one of the designed spots for the church or on the street (free on sundays).
*While this event is weekly, this Meetup will organize to participate on a monthly basis. The strongest need for volunteers is at the end of the month. If you feel inclined to volunteer at this event on other Sundays, please feel free!
** If you would like to help donate (food or monetarily) to this cause, please contact Brad Lara- Gagne at info above.
