Volunteer and serve breakfast at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans

I volunteer a couple of times a month serving lunch at the shelter. Great group of men and women who have served our country and have come back needing a little help. The Center, which was started by a Veteran, provides housing, health care, social services, food, as well as a multitude of other services for our returning heroes. They have volunteer groups come in on weekends and do breakfast service. We don't provide the food, just smiles and friendly faces. The serving starts at 7:15am and we would be done by around 9.  We have gone as a group several times and hope to keep this up monthly, there's a limit to 6 servers each time. It's really a wonderful time. Some of the ladies asked about baking/bringing something. I also spoke with the head of the kitchen....just avoid things with nuts because of allergies. Hope to see you all then! We can carpool, it's near the Orange line and if you drive in you can park right in front. Also remember a hat, you need to have your head/hair covered to serve.

Note: This is a Saturday.  A couple of group members have also requested Saturdays, so as long as we can fill up the Saturday spots, I'll keep trying to get Saturdays as well as Sundays.

    Ladies, just an FYI, we are going to have a guest volunteer with us Saturday. Pepe is his name and I guess he's volunteering on his own. The volunteer Co-ordinator asked if he could joins us for somewhat of an introduction because he knows that we are there frequently and they've heard that we are a friendly bunch. Let's make Pepe welcome with us.....and I'll see you all Saturday.
