2012.1121 CHARITY-Cornerstone Mission dinner help

  • Nov 21, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

PLEASE UNDERSTAND: THIS IS NOT A 'SOUNDS GOOD, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO' EVENT.

***IF YOU SIGN UP - PLEASE COMMIT!***

This is the night before Thanksgiving; be sure you are available.

Update from Pastor Hyde:

  • Workers should be here between 5:00pm -5:30pm for orientation and assignment.
  • We would love to have workers stay for all the meals and teardown.

Come help serve dinner, set tables, or hand out food bags at this church location!

The Cornerstone Compassion Church offers a free Thanksgiving meal to the homeless and those in extreme poverty the night before the holiday.

They ask for the families who come to eat to attend a 30 minute church service, then go out to a large dining area where WE are waiting to serve meals. This is done consecutively two-three times during this evening.

It's hustle-bustle to set up, serve, clean up, and prepare for the next wave of eaters. Each meal has about 100 or more to serve and if you help, you are really on the move for 30 mins, with a 30 min break following. Hope that gives you a good overview.

If you've been wanting to give back to the community, this is an awesome place that needs our help!
