Helping others at Thanksgiving
We see others on television, hear about them on the radio, read about them on various news sources. ¬ The volunteers, the ones who give of themselves during the holidays before sitting with their own families, and for some, volunteering¬ is thier holiday tradition.
If you’ve been considering volunteering during the holidays to help those in need, at the Elizabeth Inn, you can contact [email protected]. ¬ Help is needed for all shifts, preparation, serving, and clean up. ¬ All volunteers must attend a meeting November 3rd beginning at 9:30 am at the shelter kitchen to learn the proper procedures so everyone can be organized in the small kitchen and dining room. The minimum age to volunteer at the Elizabeth Inn is 16. ¬ More details:
