Serve a Meal at SPY

SALA Help Often team at SPY

Calling all SALAmanders!
Last month, SALA's lunch at Safe Place for Youth, which provides vital support to youth experiencing homelessness, was a tremendous success. We were able to serve over 80 youth clients with a smile, and they're counting on us to come back on Wednesday, May 2nd.
We'll purchase, prepare and serve lunch during one of their Drop-in days. They've requested 8 volunteers to help serve lunch to about 75 clients.
We can start shopping and meal preparation at 10am. My house is a couple blocks from SPY, so we can use my kitchen to heat and prep food, then bring it to SPY at 12:30 for the 1pm lunch, and we should be finished by 2:30 (when volunteers are welcome to go through the food line, or if we prepared just enough we can go out to a nearby eatery).
We also need to fundraise about $200 to cover meals costs for this event.
If anyone can't be there in person but would like to help with a donation, please Paypal to and include the note "SPY" or mail to: Sunday Assembly LA, 12575 Beatrice St., LA, CA 90066. If you're using snail-mail, please email us to let us know so we can budget for the day accordingly.
Thank you for your help! SPY relies on sponsored meals to keep getting vital services to at-risk youth, and we appreciate your help in reaching those in need among this vulnerable population. With your help, we hope to make serving meals to homeless youth through SPY a regular SALA volunteer opportunity.
