Dear volunteers, project managers, partners, friends,
Many thanks to all those who have been helping these last months. There has been a great response and those affected have been grateful.
Hot meals prepared at the kitchen in “Genève-Plage”
Starting 29 March until the end of April we have many slots open to help the cooks prepare the meals. When you sign up, you will get a list of all the days we can use help. If you have some special free days, please mention them and if someone is needed, we can book you straight in, even on short notice.
Drivers, Drivers, Drivers! We make 200+ meals at “Genève-Plage” and need some help getting them to the beneficiaries on every week-day morning (Monday to Friday). You can sign up for one day a week on a regular basis, or once in a while.
If you have a car, the project leader will tell you all you need to know!
The Sandwich programme is starting again on Friday mornings. Our project is to prepare a good snack for those who need them: Over 200 people are coming to the distribution! The plan is to find volunteers willing to make 70 sandwiches for Friday morning at home, and to deliver them before 10:30 a.m. The food package will be supplemented with drinks, fruit, yogurt, dessert, etc. and set up for take-away meals. We do hope you can again pitch in for this worthwhile event!
We are searching for renovation workers. One of our outstanding service providers (Carrefour Rue) has offices near the main train station which are sadly in need of freshening up. They really need some wall repairs, fresh paint, a new kitchen floor and perhaps a few other projects. If we can find a project leader, we can then recruit helpers to get the job done. We have financing for the project; just need some various management and skill sets. If you are interested or know someone who is, please sign up on the website.
Food and clothes collection:
Our food and clothes drive is still on through March. No need for sign-up (but have a look on the website for details), just drop off donations at 10, rue de Baulacre, 1202 Genève, near the parks of Montbrillant and Beaulieu. Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please note that the food should be non-perishable and the clothes for adults and children in a good condition, no holes or stains, all zippers and buttons present!
Many thanks again to all. The Serve the City Geneva team
