Bay Ridge Cares

Bay Ridge Cares Thanksgiving Dinner Volunteers

Change of Plans -  2021  

Delivering Dinner SAFELY to our Neighbors

Please read through everything below since some

things have changed from previous years. 

 

Bay Ridge Cares will once again be  delivering meals to those in need,seniors, disabled, and people who will be alone or unable to cook with family or friends. Last year we served dinner to over 300 people, and because of the ongoing health crisis, we will once again deliver meals directly to those who request one.

Please read each description below to familiarize yourself with the changes for this year. 

BECAUSE WE WILL BE SERVING MEALS TO OUR COMMUNITY'S MOST VULNERABLE, ALL VOLUNTEERS WHO DELIVER MEALS MUST BE VACCINATED FOR COVID. PROOF OF VACCINATION WILL BE REQUIRED ON DAY OF SERVICE, EITHER BY PRESENTING YOUR WHITE VACCINATION CARD OR YOUR NY STATE EXCELSIOR PASS ON YOUR PHONE.

We are unable to do a sit-down dinner at Shore Hill Senior Housing, but we will be providing pre-packaged meals to the residents. Distribution for these Shore Hill meals will be handled by the Shore Hill staff to limit the number of people in the building.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITES FOR 2021

1.  DELIVERY OF MEALS to our neighbors will still be happening, but again, these meals will be pre-packaged by a caterer so that we limit handling to a controlled environment.  We are also limiting our deliveries to Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Bath Beach. Please only enter the NUMBER OF CARS not the number of people in the car or the number of meals you can deliver. PLEASE NOTE: Deliveries will take place on WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 24TH between the hours of 5:30 - 6:30 PM. PICK-UP WILL BE AT THE FOLLOWING BAY RIDGE LOCATION:

ALLSTATE STOREFRONT - 7002 THIRD AVENUE ( CORNER OF OVINGTON AVENUE)

2.  WELLNESS CALLS - We are also looking for volunteers to make Wellness Calls on Thanksgiving Day Thursday November 25th to those who request one. 

3.  CARD MAKING - Another area of volunteerism is Holiday Card Making. Each family will be asked to make 10 cards.  Drop off is no later than Monday, November 22nd. Please EMAIL US at [email protected] for drop-off instructions.

We kindly ask that if you sign-up, please do so only if you are sure you can volunteer. When registering, only add names of volunteers who are age 18 and up or a parental contact.  If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!

This can be done at your convenience on Thanksgiving Day. You will be asked to call 3 - 5 people who have requested a call to check on them and brighten their day.

THANKSGIVING CARD MAKING - GREAT ACITIVITY FOR KIDS!

Thanksgiving cards will be included in every meal that is delivered. Each volunteer/family will be assigned TEN cards to make. Cards need to be delivered to Bay Ridge Cares no later than Monday November 22nd at 5:00 PM. Please keep the cards gender neutral and pictures work better than words for those neighbors who speak different languages. Please EMAIL US at [email protected] for drop-off instructions.
