(past event) Nov 11: Make Sandwiches and Lead Bingo with Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter

Saturday, November 11, 11:45 AM - 2:00 PM
Neighborhood Coalition For Shelter

East Side Neighborhoods is partnering with Hope for New York this fall to offer opportunities to serve on the Upper East Side 80s & 90s neighborhood. The Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter (NCS) serves people who are chronically, formerly or at-risk of becoming homeless. NCS was founded on the premise that homelessness is the responsibility of the entire community. Volunteers support NCS through shopping for groceries ahead of time to prepare sandwiches and by bringing bingo prizes for the residents. The first hour is spent playing bingo with residents - this is an opportunity to develop friendships with those who attend. During the second hour volunteers will prepare sandwiches and tea/coffee and serve the residents. REGISTER HERE!
