Happy Holidays to all (Serve the City Geneva Newsletter)

( December 28, 2022 )

We have a team planning a Christmas/New Years party for the Ukrainians staying in the nursing home.
29th December 2 pm – 4pm
Maison de retraite de Petit Saconnex
Bâtiment Les Érables,
Avenue de Trembley 12, 1209 Genève 
We have already a team of 5 Serve The City‘s volunteers working hard on this project. We found a group of people from the local church for singing and entertaining, some sponsors of chocolate as a part of Christmas presents. I have picked up three little presents for kids from the donation of the US mission. We found the decorations for the venue.
What we still need :
3-4  people on the 29th December from 1 pm to 5 pm to set up the room (decorations/ tables/ food), to serve the food  and to clean up the venue at the end. Russian/Ukranian speakers welcomed but not necessary. We look forward to seeing you there.
We also are still taking signups for Partage.. We have needs in January for volunteer to SORT donated goods,  and we are still providing food packages for 2,000 recipients each week..  
Happy New Year to all!!!     .. and if you are in the Vaud area, consider helping us find volunteer projects for STC close to home..   There is a signup on the website..  
Hello All
