Marian Centre Volunteers Needed
The Council has agreed to assist the Marian Centre (10528 98 street) and requires 5 to 6 volunteers to work preparing and serving food on
Saturday, November 20, 2010.
****If you can help, contact Bro. Ken Vincent (780-434-7059) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org****
Fr.Bonner Council has committed to supply the volunteers for this date, so please consider spending a half-day helping those less fortunate.
The day’s activities are typically as follows:
- Volunteers are to show up at the Marian Centre at 9:30 A.M. This gives the Marian Centre staff opportunity to get the kitchen prepared for the volunteers.
- 9:30to 10:30 - the volunteers undertake food preparation and/or other small projects. Marian Centre staff supervises,so no special, or prior experience is necessary.
- 10:30to 11:00 - Tea break and spiritual readings.
- 11:00to 12:00 - Food preparation continues, volunteers each lunch and pray for those they will be serving.
- 12:00to 1:00 – patrons are served lunch.
- 1:00to 2:00 – cleanup.
The day is extremely rewarding. Friends and family are welcome to assist as well. This activity can also be credited to student volunteer activities.
Also, through out the year, the Centre requires volunteers on weekdays. If anyone (especially those retired or who have free time during the day) can assist the Marian Centre, please contact them by calling 780-424-3544. Messages can also be left on their answering machine.
Thanks and God Bless.
