If you can't stay for a whole shift, you need to let them know in advance. When you register, there’s a section for “Special Requests” where you can let them know about any other needs/issues (such as need to be seated or in the shade, other volunteers you’d like to be placed with, you have to leave early, etc.). Feel free to mention you are with our Give to Get MeetUp group. After you register online, please note your shift and activity below so we can all find one another.
Be a part of this long-standing outreach opportunity~80 guests are served at Old First each Saturday. A hot breakfast is served and the guests are allowed to "shop" through the clothing items on display. The Cupboard functions as a "free store" and offers as much dignity and respect to the guests as possible. Volunteering includes working as a personal shopper with the guests as they peruse the clothing and toiletry items. You may also serve as a waiter/waitress, helping to serve breakfast. Volunteers should arrive by 9am, park in the courtyard parking area or street parking (metered on Race Street). Enter through the white double doors facing 4th Street in the church courtyard. PLEASE - since we make a commitment to the church that we will show up, if you sign up and your plans change and you cannot volunteer that day, please remember to change your RSVP with as much advance notice as possible. Thank you so much for considering joining this wonderful service event.
