On May 6th and 7th, the Harmony Geneva marathon for Unicef is happening again !
For the 13th time now runners will cross the city of Geneva. Organising that is quite a job so plenty of volunteers are necessary. There’s something for everyone with about 10 different types of jobs that can be done : being at the departure or at the finish line, distributing the number tags, doing logistics, distributing food & drinks for the runners, clean-up etc.
Sign up on the Geneva Marathon website : https://www.harmonygenevemarathon.com/en/volunteers
On May, 21st, the 4th Cyclotour de Leman takes place.
They have a big need of volunteers as well to do similar activities. Don’t hesitate and sign up immediately at : http://www.cyclotour.ch/volunteers/?lang=en
Keep serving !
Serve the City Geneva
Thank you so much for your quick replies! Only one day after the newsletter the sign-ups are full already!
For those who could not sign-up for these two events we will have other opportunities soon. As usual we will keep you posted with our newsletter.
A zoo in Bellevue ??
Yes, that’s right! There is a non-profit animal park in Bellevue that requested a little help on Saturday 11 March. They refurbish the animal cages from time to time, and have asked STC if we could help with a few strong hands to tear down and clean out one of the old cages. If you have a couple of hours to help them, please sign up on the STC website and we will send along the details on where to meet at 9h30 on Saturday.
Also, Carrefour Rue & STC are looking for more volunteers to join the Wednesday soup kitchen at Jardin de Montbrillant. We’re looking for volunteers who want to help prepare and serve food from 9h00 until 13h00 every Wednesday throughout March, April and May. If you’d like to join our team, or get more information, please get on the STC website , get involved, and sign-up for the Soup Kitchen event…. mentioning what days you would like to help serve.
If you currently are working on the Wednesday team or have worked on it, please confirm with Caroline what days you can commit to through 31 May., (write to firstname.lastname@example.org )
Yesterday on the 27th of January the last items of the 158 tons of food and hygiene products that were collected during the Samedi du Partage on the 26th of November, were sorted in the Partage warehouse in Carouge. Thanks to all of you for your help!
For those of you who are still looking for an opportunity to help and do not want to wait for the next Partage event, which will take place in June, we still take sign-ups for our every-other-Wednesday program for March, April and May.
