All Saints participation in the summer-long ecumenical program to feed the hungry in the Northwest suburbs, begins Wednesday, May 10. The once-a-month Summer Suppers are an ideal opportunity for families with teens and tweens to volunteer together; Confirmation students can use Summer Suppers to accumulate service hours.
We will open our doors and serve a community meal on the second Wednesday of May, June, July, August and September—the months when the PADS shelters are closed. Holden Evening Prayer worship is at 7:30 p.m. on the same night as Summer Supper and members of the congregation are welcome to be part of the community and come for supper before worship. Supper is served starting at 6:30 p.m. and the doors close at 8 p.m. All are welcome!
Members can support the program by helping serve and clean up, cooking or buying food or making by a donation. Each night we need a dozen volunteers as well as food donors to cook and shop for the meals we serve. Volunteers each night work 2½ hour shifts starting at either 5:30 or 6 p.m. No training is required although youth volunteers must work with a parent. A sign-up book is on the narthex table. Send email to PADS@AllSaintsPalatine.org if you want more information.
