Serve The City Geneva & Samedi du Partage Newsletter

Dear Serve the City volunteers,

now is the time for one of our biggest events of the year.. We are looking for 110 volunteers to help with one of Geneva’s best services to the community and those in need.

Samedi du Partage which will take place November 24th and 25th. The Partage Foundation collects and distributes food to people of need in Geneva thru over 60 different service organizations. We need volunteers to collect food items outside several supermarkets in and around the Canton of Geneva. This year we have 3 locations in Vaud for those in this area and several more in Geneva.

As a special event for all the volunteers we are going to have a ServeTheCity Samedi du Partage Apero meeting on Saturday evening 18 November, 6pm. This will be a thank you for all our volunteers, meet members of our team, information about what will happen on the 2 days, and T-shirt distribution to all the new volunteers. The Apero meeting location will be announced soon.

Please check in early to save the spot and time of your preference. If you possibly might be able help us out on Friday evenings.. to consider it as these have been our most difficult time slots to fill.. And families are more than welcome join in..

Regards to all, The Serve the City Geneva Team….

Serve the City Genève – bulletin d’octobre

Bienvenue à tous nos volontaires de Serve the City, 

 Nous espérons que vous avez profité du magnifique temps automnal.

 Nous avons été très chanceux, mais comme vous le savez, il y a toujours des personnes à Genève moins chanceuses et ayant besoin de notre aide. 

 L’un de nos plus grands événements de l’automne sera le Samedi du Partage, qui aura lieu les 24 et 25 novembre.
La Fondation Partage collecte et distribue de la nourriture aux personnes dans le besoin à Genève. 

 Nous avons besoin de volontaires pour collecter des denrées alimentaires devant plusieurs supermarchés dans le canton de Genève.

Le Samedi du Partage est toujours un événement réussi, grâce à nos bénévoles dévoués. Inscrivez-vous en groupe et aidez notre communauté tout en passant du temps avec des amis. 

 Une fois que toutes les denrées alimentaires auront été collectées, elles seront livrées à l’entrepôt de Partage à Plans-les-Ouates pour le tri. Serve the City demandera aux volontaires de nous aider dans ce processus.
Les dates seront annoncées sur notre site web et sur les réseaux sociaux une fois que la collecte alimentaire sera terminée. 

Le tri se déroule sur plusieurs semaines à l’entrepôt, de 8h30 à 11h45. Revenez pour plus d’informations ! 


 AUTRES FAÇONS de servir la ville : 


Bioparc Genève

Appel à tous les amoureux des animaux ! Nous avons besoin de votre aide. 

Le 28 octobre de 9h à 13h, Bioparc a besoin de volontaires pour préparer les enclos des animaux pour la saison hivernale. 

Plus d’informations vous seront envoyées une fois que vous vous serez inscrits. Pour ceux d’entre vous qui ne connaissent pas le Bioparc (anciennement Parc Challandes), c’est un sanctuaire animalier à Bellevue, Genève.


 Le Bioparc est “le seul endroit du canton où vous pouvez observer de près plus de 250 animaux d’environ 85 espèces différentes, européennes et exotiques, et participer à des actions en faveur de leur préservation. 

Le Bioparc de Genève œuvre pour la biodiversité à travers 4 missions clés : la conservation, la recherche, la sensibilisation environnementale et l’éducation, ainsi que la thérapie animale.”


 Jardin de Montbrilliant

Cette cuisine populaire située derrière la gare Cornavin sert près de 300 repas par jour aux personnes dans le besoin. La cuisine est ouverte du mardi au samedi. 
Les volontaires de Serve the City aident à préparer et à servir les repas et travaillent généralement de 8h30 à 13h. 

 Armée du Salut

L’Armée du Salut propose quatre projets pour les volontaires, notamment la distribution de repas aux réfugiés ukrainiens et aux femmes sans abri à l’hôtel Bel Experience. 

Ils ont également diverses opportunités dans d’autres endroits. 

Contactez-nous pour en savoir plus. 


 Nous cherchons toujours de nouvelles manières d’aider notre communauté.

Serve the City Geneva – October Newsletter

Hello to all our Serve the City volunteers.
 
We hope you have been taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather. We have been very fortunate…but, as you know, there are always people in Geneva who are less fortunate and in need of our help.
 
One of our biggest events of the fall will be the Samedi du Partage which will take place November 24th and 25th. The Partage Foundation collects and distributes food to people of need in Geneva.
 
We need volunteers to collect food items outside several supermarkets in and around the Canton of Geneva. Samedi du Partage is always a successful event, thanks to our selfless volunteers. Sign up as group and help our community while spending time with friends.
 
Once all the food items have been collected, they will be delivered to Partage warehouse in Plans-les-Ouates for sorting. Serve the City will be asking for volunteers to help with this process. Dates will be announced on our website and social media once the food has been collected. The sorting takes place over the course of a few weeks at the warehouse from 8:30 am to 11:45 am. Please check back more information!

animal sanctuary in Bellvue, Genève. Bioparc “is the only place in the canton where you can closely observe more than 250 animals of around 85 different species, European and exotic, and participate in taking action for their preservation. The Geneva Bioparc works for biodiversity through 4 key missions: conservation, research, environmental awareness and education and animal therapy.”
