DISTRIBUTE 50 BAGGED LUNCHES FOR THE HOMELESS THROUGH MERRIMACK VALLEY HOPE MISSION
Friday, February 9, 2018, 1:00 PM until 2:15 PM
Community Outreach Volunteer/Donations
The GNFC has once again partnered with Merrimack Valley Hope Mission (https://www.facebook.com/groups/198387520618766/) to prepare and distribute lunches to the homeless at GAR Park in Haverhill on the 2nd Friday of each month.
We are looking for volunteers to shop for food, prepare 50 sandwiches on Thursday, 2/8, and distribute the sandwiches at GAR Park at 1:30pm. This is an amazing opportunity to participate in street-based outreach to "meet people where they are," as MVHM strives to do.
Additionally, 1 or 2 volunteers to make baked goods to include in the lunches (so much better than the store bought cookies and brownies that we've provided in the past!) would be ideal.
If interested, please RSVP below and indicate whether you are available to bake, shop for food (shopping list provided by MVHM and Market Basket gift cards provided by GNFC), prepare the lunches on Thursday, and/or distribute the lunches on Friday afternoon. We will be in touch with all those that RSVP to provide more detailed information.
