Serve the City Geneva – August Newsletter

( August 6, 2021 )

Greetings Serve the City Volunteers,

Even under COVID conditions, we have been doing surprisingly well! Lots of problems and lots of volunteers stepping to help!! Thank you so much!

Here is an update on current projects:

We will continue our Food Bag packing project at PalExpo certainly through August: Thursday and Friday mornings. The city of Geneva has funded the program well into September too, and we will keep you informed. The program is designed to help those in Geneva economically hurt by the many closures and is doing its best to help.

Because of Covid restrictions the Soup Kitchen cannot open their meal service to the 200+ homeless guests each week. STC has been asking volunteers to help the Soup Kitchen at Mountbrilliant to prepare take-away meals. We are looking for more who are willing to make 70 sandwiches sometime during the week.. details on the STC webpage.

The Samedi du Partage program, designed to help the homeless, has a couple weeks of needs…such as, for example, counting and taking inventory of the non-perishables collected. We have all week day mornings available. If there are any changes we will let you know.

We have projects underway at two zoo operations nearby. The BioPark in Bellevue and parc La Garenne in the town of Le Vaud. We can even do some weekend projects there.

Carrefour Rue has some requests in September for help at their shop, La Jouetterie, near the main train station. A little French is helpful here, or bring a friend!

The Meal in September is a huge event for us, serving 1000 meals to guests at this Local Producers Fair. Sign up for more details!

For all events , do signup on our website for registration, and information. Our project leaders will keep you informed.

We are looking for a project manager to look after researching additional environmental projects. Perhaps working in Nature Reserves, e.g., Trail maintenance, Saleve walkway cleanup, or other such projects.

best regards
