Dining For Women
Calling All Cooks
The Community Service Committee is seeking volunteers to help prepare dinner for Albany school children at the South End Children’s Café on Wednesday, April 18.
The café offers an after-school program and dinner for children who attend Giffen Elementary School. Their families are welcome for dinner.
The menu is planned by the café, which also provides the food. Volunteers prepare and serve the meal and then clean up. This usually takes about three hours, with the first volunteers arriving at 3:30 p.m. (If you need to arrive later, we can arrange tasks accordingly.)
Depending on the number of volunteers, there may be opportunities to help the children with homework or other activities.
