Serve The City Geneva

Serve the City Geneva – 2nd Newsletter June 21

( June 24, 2021 )

Dear volunteers,

Serve the City Geneva welcomes the newbies to the group!!

We hope to see all those (again) who recently joined us and have never participated in one of our following projects.

No secrets in this garden

There is an upcoming project in Chêne-Bougeries. Carrefour Rue, one of the canton’s leading social associations, runs a trailer park for those trying to get back on their feet. It needs a big gardening team to cut, mow, and clean up an overgrown ‘jungle’. It’s scheduled for the 10th of July and lunch will be provided. Your fingers are green? Then sign up!

In the mood for a good snack

The sandwich team can always use some help. Especially now that summer and travelling season are near, the programme must be continued: so many people are counting on it. For more details, go to the website. Easy at home preparation.

The grapes of bags

Over a year and still going strong! STCG continues to help packing over 5000 grocery bags a week on Thursday and Friday mornings. You can sign up for one day, or two, or on a regular basis. It is a nice team; we do useful work and have fun! Coffee breaks with beverages and snacks provided. Bring friends and family!

The sorting hat

The 200 tons of goods collected on the Samedi du Partage weekend still need sorting. No magic, elbow grease! Several new days have been added to the Partage sorting programme. These are the goods to be distributed over the next six months; there is a big need through July. Please sign up and bring colleagues!

Animal farm

The Biopark Zoo in Genthod project is coming soon, we wait only for the date. Come sniffing the trail from time to time on the website. Call in your neighbours!

Eat pray love

The Salvation Army, one of our long-standing partners, solicits volunteers to help with the service of a midday or evening meal, near Cornavin. The place is particularly destined for fragile adults. Knowledge of French is needed.

Hours: Monday to Sunday. Lunch service 11h – 13h30. Dinner service 17h – 19h30. Tasks: receiving the beneficiaries, replenishing the buffet, etc. For more info, please sign up, write your availabilities (day and time) in the comments. The project leader will contact you.

Very very important

Please do remember: if you sign up, DO show up. Or let the project leader know, by signing out of your event, or calling him/her. This way we can not only find a replacement, but keep our engagements towards our partners.

Hope to see you soon and wishing you a lovely summer!

Your STCG team
