Is July your birthday month? If so, there are still a few weeks to extend the celebration by sharing a favorite potluck item for the After Party. We’re always looking for more potluck offerings to make the church’s welcome ever better for newbies and veteran church-goers, alike. Sweets, savories, homemade and healthy choices are all welcome. If you’d like more information, contact Mary-Ellis Adams.
Volunteer Day with Berkeley Food Pantry
Join our friends at Berkeley Food Pantry for their Harvest Day on Sun., Aug. 11 from 9:30 am–12:30 pm. During Harvest Day, Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project’s coordinators bring donated food to the pantry and volunteers are needed to help weigh, record, sort and stock donated canned and packaged food. Contact Dharma at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or for more information.
Summer Needs at the Berkeley Food Pantry
Seems like the kids always look forward to the end of the school year. For the parents of some school-aged kids, no school means no school meals or snacks. This lack of food usually puts an extra strain on an already tight family budget.
Please consider the families who stand in line for free food at the Berkeley Food Pantry while you are grocery shopping. Nutritious cereal, peanut butter and other canned or dry foods are a welcome addition to the bags the pantry provides to our neighbors. Please drop off your donations in the Hall of Entrance at Church. See Anne Rowe or Mary Fujii if you have any questions.
Senior Van Help Needed
Melissa Moss coordinates the van service for seniors living at Piedmont Gardens and Lake Park. She needs a “point person” to help make sure that folks get on the van going home after church at about 11:30 am. It would take about 15 minutes of your time. She needs someone for the first and second Sundays of the month, but if you have other availability she might be able to adjust the current schedule. If you can help with this valuable service which keeps seniors connected to the church they love, leave Melissa a message at church (510/848-3696).
