Interact

Interact Projects for November and December

1. Clothing collection for the Desiard Street Shelter - Due Friday 11/17
Items needed: Men's coats (new or gently used), Winter hats and gloves (for warmth, not fashion), packs of men's underwear, packs of men's crew socks.
Each item will give you 2 hours community service.

2. Serving food at Grace Place Soup Kitchen - Monday, Nov 20th from 11-1:30
Can have up to 30 volunteers here. We will meet there and serve on the food line and cleaning up afterwards. We went here last year for the Thanksgiving meal but there were too many volunteers there besides us. So this year we decided to go earlier in the week, but still over Thanksgiving break. Your parents are welcome to attend with you!
Serving will earn you 3 hours of community service.

3. Cooking food for the homeless - Thursday Dec 14 
This year the Interact club is going to provide a meal for up to 75 homeless people at the Desiard Street Shelter. I am asking students or parents to cook an item from the list below and deliver it to the school on Thursday, Dec 14th by 3pm. Each item should be large enough to serve 12 people. Items needed: Sweet Potato 
Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, 2 packs of Hawaiian Rolls, Sheet Cake or Sliced Pound Cake and Baked Turkey Breasts. After you sign up, I will provide you a disposable aluminum pan and a recipe.
Each item will earn you 2 community service hours or 4 for the turkey.

4. Serving at the Desiard Street Shelter - Thursday Dec 14
There are only 7 spots available to serve on this day at the shelter due to the small size of the building. Please only sign up if you truly have a heart for this project. It is quite sad there. The people are truly homeless and it is not a 100% safe environment. So be prepared if you sign up for this project.
Serving will earn you 3 hours of community service.
