Serve a meal and play Bingo at Jean's Place (age 18+) *MLK Weekend 2020*

Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Serve a meal and play Bingo with the ladies at Jean's Place!

Volunteers will be asked to bring ingredients to contribute to the meal and the group will prepare dinner on-site to serve to the ladies living at Jean's Place. The volunteer leader will contact each volunteer to instruct you on what ingredients to bring. 

We're counting on you! It is imperative that if you sign up for this project, you intend to be there and provide the ingredients that are assigned to you. When volunteers don't show up, we're not able to make the meal. If you are unable to attend, please let your Volunteer Leader know ASAP!

Please note: no volunteer will be turned away due to lack of resources. If bringing a food item is a hardship for you, please alert the project leader.

Everyone will then help facilitate a game of bingo, which will include prizes for the winners! Join us for this unique experience!

Volunteers are asked to refrain from wearing strong fragrances, such as perfume and cologne, during their volunteer shift.

A part of Transition Projects, Jean's Place is a transitional housing program for adult, single homeless women.
