Paz de Cristo Evening Meal

Please join the Phoenix Philanthropists for a wonderful evening preparing and serving a nutritious dinner to[masked] of our East Valley neighbors most in need--a service Paz de Cristo, one of our newest partners, provides every night of the year.  Enjoy working closely with other amazing volunteers in the small but efficient kitchen, then serving the delicious meal to guests in a lovely and welcoming temperature-controlled, open-air environment, often graced with live music. It is a delightful and rewarding way spend your Tuesday evening and make a true difference.

 

IMPORTANT GROUP AGE GUIDELINES & INSTRUCTIONS: The minimum age to volunteer at Paz de Cristo is 12 years old, and we are limited as a group, not individuals, to a student-to-adult ratio.  The ratio on this date is 2-students-to-11-adult Philanthropists, for a total of 13 volunteers.  As the two (2) student spots are available on a FIRST-COME/FIRST-SERVED basis, please check comments to see if there is indication that they are already taken, and, if not, RSVP for yourself and a guest, then email the host (Lori) with the name and age of the student you would like to bring to check for availability. If a student spot is no longer available, you will be notified.

ATTIRE: Please wear comfortable clothing (no bare midriffs/shoulders, tank tops, spaghetti straps, or short shorts) and, for your safety, please wear closed-toed shoes. Aprons are provided.

PARKING: Please park behind (north of) the building to the left, then enter the kitchen through the doors on the north side of that building.

IMPORTANT EVENT ATTENDANCE: As Paz de Cristo asks for the exact amount of volunteers needed to make the night run seamlessly for everyone, it is VERY IMPORTANT you change your RSVP to "NO," if you are no longer able to attend, and that you DO NOT CANCEL ON THE LAST DAY, as all spots need to be filled.

 

Phoenix Philanthropists Attendance Policy: We understand that plans change and emergencies come up. If you RSVP YES but can no longer attend, PLEASE change your RSVP ASAP. Our charity partners rely on us to attend when we say we will and our attendance policy is intended to ensure we can meet our charity partners' expectations. Please give as much prior notice as possible, but at a minimum of 2 hours notice for this event before canceling. No Call/No Shows will be recorded, and after 3 No Call No Shows/month or 6 No Call No Shows/year, you will be removed from the Phoenix Philanthropists Meetup. Please understand this policy is not intended to penalize our philanthropists, but to ensure we maintain good relationships with our charity partners and can give the most back to our community.

    It was my second time in helping and serving and I must say that it was a wonderful team to work with. I'm amazed that a really lovely dinner could prepared for 100 plus guest in a matter of a very few hours! Jim and his co -coordinator did a exceptionally great job pulling everything together!
