Ok, For those who have been patiently waiting to see all the options for this weekend (16th of July).
First up in hill above Gland there is a bird sanctuary and now a zoo especially for injured or dying species. They could use up to 6-8 volunteers to help with various tasks around the zoo. Some cleaning, organizing, directing traffic or more at ecological center in the canton of Vaud. A newly expand facility especially used for youth education and a wildlife hospital a great day out I’m sure you will enjoy and staff will be very appreciative !.. Bring your friends..
The Salvation Army has a hostel with 40 beds but no kitchen. Normally the guests get coffee, tea, bread and jam in the mornings and hot soup and yogurt in the evening.. STC is giving the guests breakfast at 6am.. and dinner at 7pm.. One of the STC volunteers is preparing the meal.. we just need servers to help set up, and clean-up.. A great project to serve those in need..
Another group to which we give great praise and recognition is Carrefour Rue, for all they do for the community. They have many projects for the homeless, the hungry, offer a free shower facility, used toys for the kids and many other things.. STC wants to have some gardeners for 1/2 day to help beautify their offices property.. A great gift from us (the community) to those who work 7 days a week for the marginalized of the community.
We also have a forest team project. La Roche, an international and Swiss ecological group can use 5-10 people to help clean up a reserve park for nesting animals.. Do get your friends to help honor Nelson Mandela’s call for service of any kind on this anniversary of his life.
We hope you are motivated to help in some sort of public service this Saturday.. Please sign up quickly so we can confirm the participation with each Service partner. More details will be sent out Thursday with all details. Do get on the Get Involved page, log in with your e-mail address and password, and sign up for our event..
Many thanks again for your quick reply
