Hello Fort Worth (and Metroplex) volunteers!
Please join us at the Salvation Army Mabee Social Services Center in Fort Worth at 11:15 to serve lunch to the homeless individuals on Sunday!
The Mabee Social Service Center provides individuals and families hot meals, a place to stay and medical assistance. In addition they have a variety of residential programs designed to take a family or individual from homelessness to stable and productive members of society. On any given day this center can house 16 homeless families, 89 homeless men, 42 homeless women and 40 dually diagnosed, mentally challenged individuals. Last year alone, over 2,500 people received shelter and 165,000 nutritious meals were served at this location!
Everyday The Salvation Army is making an impact and helping the world become a little better by changing one life at a time. We can help by serving meals to the homeless individuals.
This facility is small and we have only been allotted 15 spots, so PLEASE update your RSVP as soon as possible if your plans change. We need to allow time for others to sign up who may be interested.
Children over the age of 12 are welcome to participate (with adult supervision).
