Dear STC Volunteer,
in a short time we will be contributing to the semi-annual Samedi du Partage, which will take place on Saturday 2 June. This is a brilliant event in which hundreds of volunteers work in 75+ different stores in Geneva encouraging shoppers to share with the needy of the city. Last year, over 450 tons of goods were generously contributed by the public and used to provide meals to over 900 people a day for 6 months. STC takes part in this great project every year, and we hope that you will be willing to contribute 3 to 4 hours of your time for this very special programme.
We have been offered the chance to participate in the smaller-scale early collection on the afternoon of Friday 1 June, for which we need teams for Migros Meyrin (6 people) and Coop Florissant (4 people) from 15h to 19h30. Those who can, please help us on the Friday!
On Saturday 2 June, we will be covering five stores across Geneva (of the 75+ participating stores) and your help to fill those teams would be much appreciated. Our five stores are Migros Meyrin (fully booked), Aldi Chêne-Bourg, Aldi Petit-Lancy, Coop Grand-Saconnex and Migros Tourelle (Petit-Saconnex). Choose to serve from 8h to 12h, from 12h to15h or from 15h to 18h.
If you can’t take part in the collection itself, don’t worry! We will also be helping to sort the goods collected in June and July. (see below)
Signups for Sorting on will open on Friday 18 May.. Sign up for the Partage collection NOW!
It’s that time again when plans are being made for the sorting of the collection of the donations from Samedi du Partage.
We have the following dates all set for STC Geneva to come help out with the sorting at the
Partage Foundation, Rue Blavignac 16, 1227 Carouge
– Thursday 7
– Friday 8
– Wednesday 4
– Friday 6
– Wednesday 11
– Friday 13
– Friday 20
Last year there were nearly 140 tons of donations collected and STC Geneva helped with the sorting then too. This year we may expect the same if not more. Especially with a few stores starting collections on Friday.
We at Serve the City Geneva are extremely grateful for all the volunteers, that give up their time to help out with the sorting and hope this year again we have a lot of signups to make this one a success again.
As usual the activity starts at 8:00 am and runs until 12:00 pm. We recommend that volunteers arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of time to gather for a quick briefing and put on their Red T-shirts and begin at 8:00.
Thank you again for your participation at this Project
