Pro Bono Board

Thanksgiving Dinner at the Family Shelter/St Lawrence Place

This Thanksgiving Dinner event is cosponsored by PILS, BLSA, SBA,and the Pro Bono Program and is an annual event that will take place on Monday, Nov 25 at the Family Shelter and includes the families from St Lawrence Place. We have done this for over 10 years and everyone leaves full of food and with a smile!

This sign up is for the food and supplies we need and for volunteers to help serve dinner. First priority for volunteers are to the members of the sponsoring organizations. If all slots are not filled we will open to all law students.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

1.All food needs to be COOKED unless we ask for it to arrive in cans ( ie.green beans, gravy and cranberry sauce), in a ready to heat, disposable container and brought to the Family Shelter by 5. Feel free to coordinate with a friend to deliver your contribution. If you cannot bring your food or have it delivered you can make arrangements with the Pro Bono Program to drop it off in Room 386 before 4 on Nov. 25th

2.If you are signing up to bring food or supplies and you want to stay and serve, then also sign up to volunteer.  Our first task will be to reheat the food, set the tables and prepare for the families.

3.The Family Shelter is at 2411 Two Notch Road and is a safe place for homeless families. St Lawrence Place is a gated apartment complex off Two Notch Road that provides a safe and stable home for homeless families. The families will be arriving around 6, seated and we will be serving them dinner. This is an unusual feeling for many of them. After they depart for the evening, we will enjoy a meal together, pack up the leftovers, clean up the space and depart with a warm feeling that we have done something wonderful for those in need. A great start to the holiday season.

4. DO NOT SIGN UP TO BRING ITEMS OR COOK FOOD IF YOU ARE GOING TO CANCEL AT THE LAST MOMENT! DOING THIS IS BAD AND LEAVES US LOOKING LIKE INCOMPETENT PLANNERS.

5. Last but not least, what about turkey? Pam Robinson will cook all 6 of the turkeys.
