Buildings & Grounds Help Needed!
There is an urgent need for two people to join the Buildings & Grounds Administration Team (BGAT). With support and guidance from the Board, this committee makes day-to-day decisions about what must be done to maintain our facilities. It collects bids for things like snow plowing or asphalt paving and makes recommendations to the Board. Time required: 2-4 hours per month. If interested, please contact Gale Alexander or Margaret Henderson immediately.

Soup Kitchen Corner
by Judy Lacker
On Saturday, February 4th , some members of Soup Kitchen Team #4 will be returning to the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen on Spring Street to help serve take-out meals that were cooked in volunteers’ homes as well as bagged sandwiches for lunches and breakfasts and hot lunches for Pacific House also prepared in volunteers’ homes as well as through donations. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to serve the guests a meal inside because of the Covid pandemic.
You can also help feed our neighbors with a gift card in any amount from any local supermarket. In addition, you can still continue to make food donations to the Daily Bread Food Pantry (25 West Street – entrance off Terrace Place). Donations are accepted on Mondays between 11 am and 2 pm and on Fridays between 8:30 am and 11:30 am. Lynn has also been scheduling the sandwich donations so we have just the right amount each day at Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen. If you are interested in making sandwiches, please email her at email@example.com.
We can all be an important part of the fight to end hunger in our community!
In the past couple of years, we have lost some of our Dorothy Day volunteers. Please consider volunteering to be on a DD Team – it only involves a few hours, 3 Saturdays per year. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience. Please contact Judy Lacker for more information or to sign up.
Please note that we have resumed collecting non-perishable food donations on Sunday mornings.
Please place your food donations in the basket in the foyer. You can sign up to help transport the weekly collection to The Dorothy Day Hospitality House on Spring Street.
