Friends of the State Street Family
Coordinator for July 20, 2019: Kimberly Wilson (608) 287-6710 and [email protected]
Help us prepare and serve a nourishing meal for Madison's homeless population on Saturday, July 20th, 2019, 12:00-1:00 (please arrive by 11:50) at The Beacon, 615 E Washington Ave.
Shaarei Shamayim has offered to support the work of Friends of the State Street Family (FSSF), an umbrella group serving the many needs of our neighbors experiencing homelessness. We need volunteers to help provide and serve a meal one Saturday every other month. Many things can be made ahead and would make wonderful group projects for friends, families, or havurot. Our community has done this before - please reach out to our well-seasoned volunteers for suggestions and support!
You can provide, or serve, or both as suits you schedule. Funds are available to offset the cost of food - simply send receipts to Joy. Food can be dropped off at the site at 11:50 (the Beacon has it's own parking lot) or at Kimberly's home earlier in the week or by 10:30 Saturday (please email/call Kimberly to arrange, contact info is above). The parking lot and main door for the Beacon is in the back and accessed from East Main Street between Blount and Blair Streets. You may also pull in and unload to a rolling cart that the Beacon provides.
If you cannot make food or want to make a donation for this event to help defray the cost, click here.
