SPECIAL THANKSGIVING WEEKEND EVENT!

We have had such great experiences in networking with a church non-profit organization in helping out with feeding the homeless.  For this Sunday, we are hosting our Thanksgiving event for the "Path of Life" Riverside Family Shelter, http://thepathoflife.com/about/. Our volunteer group will assist in providing meals for families, children, parents, men and women at this family shelter.  I meet with the Director and they are very appreciative of our meal donations.

We will prepare meals at my home in Ontario starting at 10:00 a.m.  and then deliver the meals to the family shelter in the early afternoon.  Your attendance and support is important to make this event successful.

We need the following donations or you can donate $10 via Pay Pal or arrange for a drop-off by Friday, November 23rd.  Click on the red "$5.00 Yearly" on the left hand side and it will take you to the menu to submit your donation. You can change the dollar amount.

    It was a good experience for me. I really enjoyed helping out, and knowing that it was for a real good cause.

  • Mary C.

    Yes I was counting on your 2 items. Can you bring them by tomorrow morning?

    November 24, 2012

    • Mary C.

      All details were sent yesterday with direction. Pls ck your email and let me know if you're ok.

      November 24, 2012

    • Diane A.

      I didn't receive an email with details and directions. This might be because I changed my RSVP. Please send the details when you get a chance.

    Hi Mary, I recently changed my rsvp because of family obligations but my day tomorrow is now open. I have the items that I said I would bring and would still like to help out. Please let me know if I can still contribute to the event. Thank you.

    November 24, 2012

  • Diane A.

    Hi Mary, is it possible to drop off the stuff I bought tomorrow and donate money. Not sure I'll be able to make it on Sunday because of family obligations.

    November 23, 2012

  • Jesse

    I'am opting to pledge 10 dollars.

    November 22, 2012

  • Diane A.

    Thanks for the quick response, Mary. I appreciate all you've done to organize this great opportunity to give to others. I will definitely be there. Will we be getting an email with the address of where we are meeting to prepare the food? And I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    November 22, 2012

  • Diane A.

    Please confirm meet time and approximate duration of the event since the meet time has changed from 5:45am to I see now 10am. Is there a typo or has the time changed to 10 am? I have family responsibilities I need to attend to at some point on Sunday. Thanks.

    November 21, 2012

    • Mary C.

      Revised time is correct...should be done approx noon. Its been a challenge coordinating with the time, but no need to be up early with our simple menu.

      November 22, 2012

  • Belinda

    Please sign me up for 2 cases of water and the slices of cheese. Do we need to donate $10 additional to what we are taking? Also is it ok to take the stuff with me Sunday morning?

    November 21, 2012

    • Mary C.

      Hi Belinda, Were you bringing all the cheese or 1/2 of the amount so I know what to post? No need to donate money if you signed up for food items. This is only for people who rather donate money.

      November 21, 2012

  • Belinda

    Santiago, I hope your grandson gets well soon.

    November 21, 2012

  • Wendy

  • Diane A.

    Hello, I will bring the aluminum foil sheets and sandwich bags. Are these items needed prior to Sunday?

    November 20, 2012

    • Mary C.

      You can bring them on Sunday - thanks!

      November 21, 2012

    I have had a great response from our group. I am moving forward in planning our Sunday event. The posting has been revised with detailed info. I will be collecting food donations and monetary donations by Friday, November 23d. This will assist us in what we need to shop for on Saturday. Thanks everyone!

    November 20, 2012

  • Diane A.

    Hi Mary, I'm a little confused about the changes. Where will be meeting and when do you need the $10 donation? Is it prior to the event in order to purchase the food and other needed materials or the day of the event. Please clarify place and time so I know whether I will be able to attend. Thanks.

    November 20, 2012

  • Mary C.

    Thanks Santiago...wishing you and your family well. Hope you can join us.

    November 20, 2012

  • Jesse

    Yes, I will still be attending and I can also donate. Look forward to meeting you all!

    November 20, 2012

  • Mary C.

    Hi Members, I need to hear from everyone to proceed with this event. Thanks for the few that have responded. Please let me know if you can still volunteer and donate $10 to buy the food for this Sunday. I appreciate your response today so I can prepare the menu. Thanks

    November 20, 2012

  • Wendy

    Hi Mary !! I'm still interested in helping out .

    November 19, 2012

    I was asked by the church for our group to host this Sunday's event. The church has committed to another event the same day. In order for this event to be successful I would need everyone's commitment before we accept, even the waiting list. We can all pitch in $10 and make the menu simple by providing turkey sandwiches, water, cookie and fruit. If you would like to support our volunteer group in this event, keep yourself on the RSVP and post a message. If you cannot, then please change your RSVP ASAP. A detailed e-mail and revised posting will follow as soon as I know that we will proceed with the event. Thanks!

    Looking forward to meeting all of you and making a difference.
