Help needed in June

( )

Dear Volunteers,

We hope you are all safe and well. We have several needs and offers to help those who are homeless and hungry, for the month of June.

Volunteers are needed to make sandwiches once a week

Our first need is to find 6 sandwich makers for the Soup Kitchen at Montbrillant. The job is making 70 sandwiches once a week either for the Tuesday or Wednesday delivery. You and your team will help feeding the 200 people per day needing a meal. The soup kitchen itself cannot yet open due to distancing problems, so we help prepare take-away meals. Each week you drop the wrapped sandwiches at the side entrance about 10am for distribution. Thanks very much for helping those who are suffering even more during these special times.

Volunteers to help prepare take-away boxes:

Serve the City needs helpers to prepare 200 take-away meals, Tue thru Sat in June. The volunteers are needed as of 11:00. The location is the kitchen of Salvation Army at 1, Rue de la Vallée, Geneva” in the old town. Please sign up and we will send more information and confirmation as things progress.

Volunteers with cars to deliver take-away boxes:

Serve the City needs people with cars to deliver lunch-boxes from the kitchen of Salvation Army to their 3 to 4 other locations, all within 15 minute driving distance from the kitchen at 1, Rue de la Vallée, Geneva. Drivers need to arrive at about 10:30 am to the kitchen, take the crates and deliver to the indicated locations. Depending on availabilities and size of cars, one driver can do all 3 deliveries in one day or multiple drivers can share the daily task. Please sign up if you are able to help on one or more days and perhaps thru June.

Do sign up soon at ServeTheCityGeneva.ch and project leaders can provide needed information.

Geneva Kindness Quotient

( May 16, 2020 )

Although we had ONLY 12 contributions to our KQ indicator (Geneva Kindness Quotient) the average score was 6.5  i.e. slightly better than normal. Some of the comments were;

-Geneva is not an obviously warm city but there is kindness out there. 

-I see a high KQ in Geneva because people in general are conscious about following hygienic and social distancing rules. In addition, they are showing solidarity everyday towards medical workers by celebrating their work through clapping. Furthermore, Geneva has volunteering groups in action such as STC to try and help others. If I took out some points is because at the beginning, panic buying was so selfish towards others.  

-People are very nice, but don’t necessarily go out of their way to help out 

Now 6.5 was in the lowest 25% of the 100 STC’s worldwide but hopefully STCG can help raise this level! 😊
