Opportunity Details

Serve Dinner at the New England Center and Home for Veterans

Volunteers will assist the kitchen staff by serving hot meals, getting to know the veterans, assisting those with mobility issues, cleaning up the space, and occasionally, bussing tables and washing dishes. Please come prepared to complete any of these tasks and to pitch in where asked. Volunteers should bring a baseball cap or other head covering to wear while serving the meal. A hairnet will be provided if volunteers forget to bring their own. Volunteers must also wear shirts with sleeves and closed-toed shoes.

Please arrive by 4:15 pm, so that way we can start serving in a timely manner!
