Calling all cooks and waiters/waitresses!!­!!

EVENT is CLOSED . We'll be going at 4pm to serve food. I will re-post this again when more can attend.

You are not being charged to volunteer, but it was the only way I could get the website to let me collect donations :-) 

Here's what we need!  The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition needs us to make dinner for about 180 homeless folks and their families at the shelter.  Please look at the cutoff date. I have to commit us by 3/20

Here's whats cookin'!  You are!!   Cooks will be preparing dinner and must arrive by 1pm - We will make a meat, veggies, salads, rolls (The kitchen-boss helps plan the menu, so once we talk I'll update this).  We need 5 cooks! Cooks can head out around 4.

Here's what serving! Some of you will become cafeteria ladies/men and serve food onto trays.  Others will be waiters/waitresses bringing trays (lunch size trays not restaurant trays)  to the tables.  You guys arrive at 4pm. I need 10 of you.  You'll be done by 7-7:30.

Can't volunteer but want to contribute to the $200 cost of dinner???  Send $ through paypal to me and I'll get it where it needs to go.  I'll provide a link.  Send it as a gift so we don't lose any $ in paypal fees please!  I put in $5 to pacify this website, but you can change the amount!  I'll be grocery shopping ahead of time and appreciate any contribution to the $200 you can help me with.

Like to bake - Please contact me!  We will need dessert for 200.  Easter bunny cupcakes would be delightful for the kids (both little and big kids).  Pies, cakes, cookies work too.  If a few of you want to form a sub-group and take the dessert job, let me know!  Desserts need to be in the kitchen before 4pm.

Here's what to expect: Singles and families, men, women and kids. Most are homeless through no fault of their own (economy). All are grateful for the time you spend with them. They are respectful and pleasant. Home cooking means a lot to them and the fact that you took time out of your day to prepare is appreciated too!

Dress appropriately- wear sneakers, no open toe shoes. Pull back long hair.

We're done by 7-7:30 so you can still go out with friends afterward.

Thank you so much for this random act. It matters more than you know!

Happy Easter!!!!

    I will definitely do it again. Everyone (volunteers and guests) was very nice and I hope that we can make a difference in someone's day by helping out in whatever way we can.

    Could you let me know if you still need me as a server? If you have more than you need, I am also at another function that day (all day).
    I am able to still come and help, if needed; but, do not want to come to find out you may have too many servers! Please let us know what the plan is so we can come prepared and ready to go! thanks :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
