Damiano Volunteer Schedule 2017-2018
Dear Damiano Soup Kitchen Volunteers,
Here is the schedule for September 2017 through August 2018. Please print this schedule and/or put the dates that pertain to you on your calendar. You will receive a reminder email the Tuesday before you are scheduled. If you need to find a replacement it should be done before that. Please read below for more information on schedule changes.
Thank you for volunteering your time at Damiano either as a “regular” volunteer or substitute. Peace Church provides volunteer helpers at the soup kitchen the second Sunday of each month. The volunteer schedule for September 2017 through August 2018 is included in this letter. The Damiano Center is located at 206 West 4th Street and the soup kitchen is on the bottom floor (if you enter at the door on the west side of the building off the parking area, the soup kitchen is down the stairs, then on your right). Volunteers are scheduled for 1:30 and 4:20 shifts, each 2 to 2.5 hours long. The 1:30 shift helps prepare the food, and the 4:20 shift helps with finishing food preparation, serving the food and cleaning up after the meal.
A Damiano staff person and possibly a couple of non-Peace Church volunteers will be with you during your time slot. The staff person will let you know what needs to be done (food preparation, silverware-napkin rolling, food serving, etc.) Please plan on staying the full two and a half hours, unless the staff person lets you know that she is OK with you leaving.
Please wear a hat or hairnet when working with the food; you may bring your own hat (nothing special – a baseball cap will do) or don a hairnet provided at the soup kitchen when you arrive. Also, we need to wear closed-toe shoes when working in the kitchen. Disposable gloves are also available for your use at the kitchen.
We have five volunteers scheduled for each shift. If you are unable to volunteer on the date you are scheduled, please find a replacement by any or all of the following ways:
- A) Contact someone on the SUB
- B) Contact another scheduled volunteer who may want to trade shifts or take your shift (it’s absolutely OK to stay for both shifts, if someone is willing).
- C) Contact anyone else you know who might like to help out at the soup kitchen (this does NOT need to be a Peace Church member – friends are welcome!)
- D) If you need, contact Janell in the Peace office and she can send out a group email asking for a trade or replacement for you.
*I would suggest trying to find your own replacement first and then let Janell know of any changes and she can edit the schedule at the main office and send out a monthly reminder to the correct people. It is very important that each shift have adequate numbers of helpers, as the staff at Damiano relies on us to show up. Thank You!
Children under the age of 16 should not participate in volunteering at the Soup Kitchen.
The schedule will be posted on the Peace website www.peaceucc.org under “worship” then click on “volunteer schedule”.
Thanks for volunteering your time and energy! It is very much appreciated.
