Give to Get members - Old First may need some extra help from us on June 22, thus the short notice! If you missed on the 15th or just want to help again, here is a great chance. In addition to normal tasks we may also help with breakfast prep and serving, (only if you like to do that - otherwise there are other ways to help out), as they may be short-staffed. Sign up and lend a hand for just a couple of hours on Saturday morning! I've posted this as starting at 8AM so that we can help with breakfast prep if needed. Here's the regular info:

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 8-8:30am, 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.
