A team of Glen Mar volunteers provides the lunch meal on the 4th Saturday of each month for approximately 70 people. 8-10 volunteers are needed to prepare one or more dishes, half of whom will stay to serve lunch on site or do other jobs (e.g., greeter, shower/laundry monitor, pantry). We especially need drivers!
Minimum Volunteer Age: 18. Youth interested in helping out could help parents prepare and deliver food, or pick up, wash at home, and deliver towels when the Center is open (contact the Rt. 1 Day Center to confirm if they need help with washing towels).
