Mitzvah Project - Please Participate with I-Help

  • Jul 6, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • First United Methodist Church

I-HELP is a year-round effort by area religious institutions, businesses and organizations to provide food and lodging to homeless men and women in Tempe. Volunteers plan, provide & serve a meal for approximately 40 homeless adults at a church in Tempe. A fun and rewarding mitzvah project for us as a group. If you don’t cook, no problem! There are paper goods and sack lunches to provide.

Details to follow - hope you join us by helping to prepare, serve and make a difference!

    Here is the recap of what everyone is bringing:

    Scott: Meatballs, plates, cups, plastic ware, garlic bread, water, and aluminum pans.

    Lanee: Dessert, salad dressing

    Bob: Salad

    Robin: Pasta and Sauce

    Susan: PBJ sandwiches, fruit and water in sack lunches for next day.

    Also if you're not providing food, please bring a minimum of $10 to help offset the cost that the rest of us are incurring. If you can give more, your generosity would be appreciated.

    If I am missing anything, please let me know.

    We look forward to seeing everyone and making this a successful mitzvah project as we help those less fortunate than we are.

    Thank you!

    I have plastic ware and can pick up plates and cups when I go to Costco this weekend.

  • Lanee C.

    Can anyone contribute paper goods such as paper plates, utensils, plastic cups? You can bring them the day of the event if you like but a solid commitment would be nice. Anything not accounted for falls in my lap. Robin, Scott and I are going to cook the night before if anyone else chooses to join us

    I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend after all. I'm staying a day longer than I first thought on a trip out of town.

    1 · June 22, 2014

    • Lanee C.

      It's understood and it looks like we have enough people.

      1 · June 23, 2014

  • Lanee C.

    Please help with preparing on Saturday night. While we need help with the actual event, we also need support with the actual assembling of everything.

    1 · June 23, 2014

  • Lanee C.

    Susan is on for PBJ and fruit for the next day lunches, Scott has the bottled water to go with the lunches. We still need meatballs for 40 - 50 people, pasta, spaghetti sauce, salad, garlic bread, lemonade or punch, paper plates, utensils, plastic cups. Please sign up and feel free to drop at my house if you cannot make the event.

    Sarah and I can make the lunches--pbj and fruit. Lanee--should I make 50?

    2 · June 16, 2014

  • Lanee C.

    If you cannot make it to prepare food the night before the event, please bring $10 with you to contribute. This will be given to members who have purchased for this event on behalf of the ones who couldn't help in the kitchen on July 5th.

    1 · June 15, 2014

  • Lanee C.

    Please let me know if someone can volunteer their kitchen to cook. If not we can cram into my dining room on Saturday night to make P,B,J's and a pasta dish. We also need a mammoth amount of salad. Dinner suggestions...pasta dish such as meatballs and spaghetti noodles, garlic bread, salad and then we need a dessert. We normally also fix sack lunches for the next day. We will need P,B,J's, a fruit and water bottles. Please list what you can contribute and count on 40- 50 people when you volunteer. We need paper plates, utensils, cups and paper sacks for lunches. If you cannot make it to the event, please plan to bring the donations on the week or weekend of the I-help event.
