HOMELESS SOLUTIONS VOLUNTEERS
September 25 – open
October 23 – Frank Cahill, Carol Tiesi
HOMELESS SOLUTIONS – On the 4th Saturday every month, our Kiwanis Club serves dinner to the residents of the Homeless solutions facility. One volunteer needs to shop, usually at Costco, from a prepared grocery list, and take the groceries to Homeless Solutions. Three people are needed to prepare the meal. The dinner the Kiwanis serves is always baked ziti with meatballs, fruit salad, tossed salad, and cake for dessert.
All we do is cook and serve the meal, the residents do clean up. The time involved is usually 4-7 pm. The residents at Homeless Solutions are just like you and me; they are just in need at the moment of a ‘hand up” not a ‘hand out’; for whatever reason, they have fallen upon hard times. Men, women, and children needing temporary housing. This is truly an experience that will change your heart for the better. To volunteer contact Laura Wohland (973) 714-4443
