New York Shitty Day Starter: Help Wanted For Thanksgiving
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Love Thy Neighbor
Hi Greenpoint Blogs, (Greenpointers and myself — Ed. Note)
Could you spread the word for us?
Ascension Church is hosting a free Thanksgiving meal from 12-6 pm. We expect 150-250 people to come eat, and we need help prepping, serving and cleaning! We’d love to get more Greenpointers involved in service at the Ascension Food Pantry, which runs a weekly soup service.
The Thanksgiving meal takes place Thursday, 12-6 pm at Ascension Hall, 122 Java Street. Volunteers are also encouraged to eat!
Tuesday and Wednesday will be prep and cook days at Grandma Rose’s Pizza, 457 Graham Avenue between Meeker Ave & Richardson St (http://www.grandmarosespizzabrooklyn.com/). The hot food will be transported by hearse to Ascension on Thanksgiving morning. Yup.
WE NEED HANDS — not only on the day, but also prepping the food. It’s a great way for people to serve, even if they are leaving town.
Monday 11/21 7-10p [chop/prep]
Tuesday 11/22 10-6 [chop w Carmelo] or 6-9p [butter-massage los turkeys]
Wednesday 11/23 10-10p [misc prep and cook] or 6-10p [set up at Ascension]
Thursday 11/24 10-8p [carve, serve, and clean at Ascension — 3 hour increments]
Any and all vollies should contact Kathleen at greenpointfoodpantry (at) gmail (dot) com. Speaking as a vegetarian, methinks I’ll forgo the free vittles and “butter-massage” and volunteer for clean-up. Anyone care to join me?
