Saturday, Mar. 6 Update
What a great day! We were joined once again by our friend Jessica Currano from Blankets for Baltimore - so glad to have her back with us. We set up our tables in a long line and our guests could pick up a new blanket, a toiletry kit, hot lentil soup and cornbread, a bag lunch, and hot coffee as they moved along. (You can see why we are always asking for reusable bags - it’s a lot to carry!) A regular volunteer kindly brought along some extra volunteers so we’d be ready for the larger numbers of people we’ve been seeing each week. Having lots of volunteers to serve means that no one is too busy to have a chat with a guest or listen to their story, and that’s what we’re all about. (If you’d like to serve but the sign-up page is full, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to add you.)
A big-thank you to my significant other who built us a gorgeous chalkboard sign that lets folks know who we are and what’s on the menu for the day.
