We joined the Brooklyn Friends Community Church in Brooklyn Heights to help out at their monthly community dinner. They serve dinner to aprox 80-100 in need adults and children the last Sunday of every month. It was such a pleasure to work with them and see the tremendous job they do.
Before our guests arrived we prepared cookies, sliced and buttered bread, made welcome notes and set tables. When the guests came in we greeted them at the door, served food and beverages, chatted, delivered gift bags, and then helped clean up.
It was a long day for many of our younger volunteers, so we also took breaks, and met new friends in the adjoining playground.
The Brooklyn Friends Community was so welcoming and accomodating of our little helpers. They would love to have volunteers come by any last Sunday of the month to help out. Location is 110 Schermehorn Street
