LOAVES & FISHES MINISTRIES, INC.
August 2019 CALENDAR (download
Hector had a slight setback with this placement of his
collarbone pin, but he continues to mend and we expect to have him back in
the kitchen in August. He is very appreciative of all the well wishes from
your groups - the cards have meant a lot to him. We continue to be very
appreciative, as well, of all of our volunteers who have also pitched in to
help us maintain our high level of service to clients. We thank all of you
for your adaptability and willingness to pitch in with extra help in this
unusual time. We are glad that Hector is healing well and we look forward to
having our full staff in the kitchen at Loaves and Fishes very soon!
DRESS/ATTIRE IN DINING ROOM:
It is summer and we have
certainly had some very warm days. We are very fortunate to enjoy a
wonderfully air-conditioned dining room that allows us to be casual,
comfortable and well covered. Please dress appropriately for a soup kitchen
-NO "too short" shorts, short skirts or revealing necklines. Please
remember: rubber-soled shoes are appropriate for serving. No heels are
allowed on the tile floor due to "slip potential" and liability issues.
Running shoes are perfect.
summer days when many are away or on vacation, some groups are finding
themselves short of volunteers. This is not a problem if we know ahead of
time! We have several individuals who like to help out on a substitute
basis, and will be glad to do so with enough advance notice. Please, as your
group's contact, simply reach out to let me know of any volunteer needs
prior to your serving date - we can help! (524-1730)
We want to thank all of our volunteers for the continued friendly manner in
which you conduct all of your interactions with our clients. Volunteers are
patient and polite to clients, and make them feel at home in our dining
room. Everyone should feel welcome in the dining room, and they do. Please
continue to be mindful of the conversations that you have amongst each other
and be sure that they are appropriate for the setting.
If you think you may be short on
volunteers for your day, please call us 48 hours in advance (if possible) so
we can find extra help. (524-1730)
