Serve The City Geneva

Volunteering with the Salvation Army this week!

Chers collaborateurs bénévoles,

Je vous informe qu’il reste encore des places de disponibles pour les activités de bénévolat  pour les marmites dans les rues basses. Le poste Verdaine aurait besoin encore de personne qui pourrait éventuellement participer le mercredi, jeudi et samedi prochain. J’espère que quelques uns d’entre vous aurai du temps de disponibles à nous consacrer pour participer. Je suis tout à fait conscience que je vous sollicite tout de même beaucoup, mais il est vrai que c’est grâce à vos participations que nous pouvons continuer à faire perdurer certaines de nos activités et je vous en remercie.
 
Pour les personnes intéressées merci de contacter directement le Poste Verdaine : geneve_verdaine@armeedusalut.ch
