Where: First United Methodist Church (basement), 824 Cooper Ave, Glenwood Springs. Enter building from alley
About: United Methodist Church hosts the Extended Table every third Thursday of the month. The Extended Table is not only for the homeless. Many of those attending each night have a job, but for what ever reason, need a warm meal. Those in attendance not only include men and women, but an occasional family needing fed as well. With the struggling economic times, their numbers just keep getting larger and larger. In the past year, they have gone from serving 40-50 people to 75-90 during the winter months!
We will be making dinner for those in need. The food needs to be soft in texture since many have dental issues. We need volunteers in a few different ways
In advance of the event (if you know a restaurant or grocery store that would like to donate, that’s even better!)
- To donate food and/ or make enough chili and cornbread for approximately 50 people
- To donate healthy fruits and vegetables that are soft….yogurt is another option!
- To donate healthy drinks, tea, hot chocolate and/or water
- To donate large baggies, plastic silverware
- To donate small, individually wrapped snacks
At the event
- Help prepare meals for those in need
- Set up the room and clean up after the event
When you RSVP, we’ll be in touch to see how you would like to help volunteer for this event!
