Upcoming Community Outreach Opportunities
Pacific's Community Outreach Committee would like to make the Pacific community aware of upcoming opportunites for community service:
St. Mary's Interfaith Dining Hall
Volunteers are needed to serve lunch from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. on the following dates: April 24, May 10, May 24. Volunteers should arrive by 11 a.m. to receive instructions. Clean-up is from 12:30 to 1 p.m. For those of you not familiar with St. Mary's, the organization was founded in 1955 and responds to poverty in San Joaquin County by feeding the hungry, caring for health issues and restoring human dignity for over 700 individuals each day.
Shriners Children's Hospital
During the month of April, the Pacific Community Outreach Committee is collecting non-monetary donations for the Shriner's Hospital for Children in Sacramento. Donations are new items only for the children that they serve and their families. (Many families arrive in an emergency situation and do not have socks, T-shirt or even a tooth brush with them). The Shriners Hospital for Children is supported entirely by private donations. All care is provided free of charge. YOU can help by making a donation from the attached "Ideas for Giving List."
