Community Service - Feed The Homeless
A RSVP here is not a registration. You MUST register on the iBlack community portal for this event at: https://iblack.biz/events/categories/event-type/community-service/ (This is a monthly event. It only accepts 20 volunteers & sells out quickly) Description: Do you want to give back to those less fortunate? Maybe you have been wanting to volunteer with a group of well meaning people but do not know how because you are not affiliated with any political or religious organization. If so, then this is your opportunity to help make a difference. iBlack is looking for volunteers to help us prepare and serve lunch for homeless children, individuals and families. We are working with the the St. Stephen Loaves & Fishes program which has served lunch to the hungry and homeless since 1968. Since most Washington food programs serve only on weekdays, the program offers a crucial service to its guests, some of whom travel across the city to be able to eat on the weekend. We will start at 11:00 am at the St. Stephen kitchen to prep and serve the meals. No need to bring any supplies. Everything is provided by the St. Stephen Loaves & Fishes program include aprons and gloves. Professional chefs welcome but NO experience is required – just bring a desire to help others and roll up your sleeves This program has made a difference in many people’s lives over the years and we hope you will join us by signing up below. Suggested Attire: For volunteer safety, please wear closed toe shoes, comfy clothes, no tank tops, and put your hair up. Your registration also means that you understand that you are volunteering at your own risk. Directions: St. Stephen & the Incarnation Episcopal Church 1525 Newton Street NW Washington, DC 20010 Social Hashtags: #iblack, #volunteer, #giveback Parking: Please note that the church we are volunteering at does not have a public parking lot. Street parking is very limited due to the number of churches in the area; therefore, plan to arrive well before 11:00 am because finding a parking space can be an issue. We suggest planning to arrive no later than 10:30 am. The church is also accessible via Metro's Columbia Heights station (http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/Stations/station.cfm?station=75) on the Green Line (approximately 7 minutes away by foot) and numerous Metrobus routes on 16th & 14th Streets.
