new years resolutions

Local Volunteer Opportunity @ Church of the Ascension

The holidays are over, but now that the swell of volunteers has come and gone, extra hands are always needed. The Church of the Ascension (127 Kent St) is moving their Hunger Program to Saturdays, serving meals for over 80 men and women in need every week. Volunteers (including children of all ages) can chip in from 9am to 1:15pm, with the option for early or late shifts. ┬áDon’t be deferred by the Church location; you don’t have to be Catholic, or any religion for that matter, to participate.

Father John Merz (not Misty) explained, “Greenpointers know about the needs of our community. Everyday we run into familiar faces in our neighborhood who don’t have enough to eat. Our team of volunteers work to provide a meal, a warm space and hospitality to these familiar faces.”

So if you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution to be a better person or do good deeds or all of the above, this is your chance.
