Service Project for January 30

Saturday, January 30th, we are planning on taking lunch and some warm items (hats, gloves, blankets, coats, etc) to the homeless.  We are planning for 50 people, so to keep this as simple and affordable as possible, we are going to take sandwiches, chips, and drinks.  We need 5 people to volunteer to make one loaf of bread of individually wrapped sandwiches, 3 people to bring individually wrapped chips, and two people to bring bottled water.

As for the "warm" items, we are going to ask each person that comes to bring at least 1 item.  You are welcome to bring more, but please bring at least one thing with you.  Keep in mind, these DO NOT have to be new.  I know we all probably have stuff laying around our homes that we don't use anymore, so coming up with something to bring should be fairly easy. 

We have coordinated this through First Stop, an organization who works daily with the homeless in Huntsville.  They are going to get the word out and agreed to let us use their parking lot to serve lunch.  If you want to meet at Mayfair and carpool, plan on being there no later than 11:15.  Otherwise, please plan on meeting at First Stop at 11:30, and we will begin serving lunch at 12:00.  First Stop is located at 206 Stokes St.  Maps and directions will be available this Sunday in class for anyone who needs them.

If you are willing to bring sandwiches, chip, drinks, or have any questions, please let Andy or Craig know.  If you will not be able to make it next Saturday but would still like to donate items, feel free to bring them with you this Sunday and we will make sure they are distributed.
