Volunteer "Flash Mob" at Trinity Lakewood Community Outreach

Volunteers "land" at hunger relief center, Trinity Lakewood Community Outreach!

A "flash mob" of 50 volunteers for the National Service Day came this past Saturday and left Trinity Lakewood Community Outreach with 1) a reorganized storeroom, 2) a stocked pantry,3) a cleaned out garden, 4) cleaned out flowerbeds,  5) weed free sidewalks and property, 6) a totally swept parking lot and sidewalks all around, 7) washed windows on the first floor, 8 cleaned bathrooms from top to bottom, 9) cleaned stage area, 10) a deep cleaing of all tables and chairs and chair racks, and cleaned window sills in the Community Rooma nd church sanctuary, and 12) tables set for our 80 guests.

These volunteers also prepared and served a noon lunch of chicken, soup, potatoes and vegetables. Then afterwards they washed dishes and cleaned up everything! 

Some connections were made with potential new volunteers, potential sponsors for one of our meals, and potential chefs for the 1st Monday meal. What a day!

Thank you to all who respnded to this amazing Day of Serviced and those who organized such!

I attended this event and I am so proud of everyone that attended. I cannot wait to do it again. Maybe we can get over to Rocky River and help some of the elderly in the older neighborhoods. The Yacht Club basin really needs some work. pam davis-ghaster
