2 weeks ago at Circus Maximus I suggested an additional 2nd F outing idea for May: Spending an evening Preparing and Serving a dinner for the guests of The Doorways. Several folks were interested in participating.
The Doorways is one of the largest hospital hospitality houses in the country (112 rooms) and THE largest in the country operating on donations alone. Guests include patients and caretakers who are receiving medical attention away from home. (http://www.thedoorways.org/about/the-doorways/)
One of our own, London, works as the Community Outreach Manager at The Doorways.
The Doorways has very nice kitchen facilities and food donations of most varieties available for their guests. However, they welcome volunteers willing to prepare meals, serve meals, plan a post-meal event (like calling a few games of Bingo), and mostly spend time with guests.
I was thinking we could prepare a Taco Bar with all the fixings…I can check with London the week before to earmark some of the donated food for F3’s meal day…and fill-in with whatever produce/perishables we’d need.
This month, they have scattered meal volunteer needs.
I was thinking we could offer our services on one of the following:
- Wed May 11
- Fri May 20
- Mon May 23
- Thu May 26
Depending on numbers of folks interested, I’d like to extend the invitation to our families to join us. Fridays might be easier for those of us with young families.
Who is interested…and which of the days above works best for you?
