Summer-time Is Volunteering-time!
Summer has arrived! And while that may mean sunshine, beaches, and ice cream to many, for Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen it means hard work to ensure that everyone has a place to eat. As the weather improves, so many more people are living on the street in New Haven. The lines to get into our dining room stretch and our numbers swell.
Volunteers are essential to meeting this need.
For many of our regular volunteers, summer also means vacation. With college students returning home, we see our ranks thin out during July and August -- our busiest time of year! That is why we need YOU now more than ever.
Signing up to volunteer is very easy. Simply visit our SignUp.com page, find a date and shift that works for you, and you're set! You can even sign up multiple people at once. You'll get a reminder email three days ahead of your scheduled time. If you have to cancel, no problem: just go back onto the SignUp.com page and remove yourself.
Got questions? Check out the Volunteer page on our website to find a list of guidelines for volunteering at DESK.
Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen exists because of dedicated volunteers just like YOU. Without your help and support, we cannot feed over 2,000 individuals each year. YOU make all this possible! Thank you!
