This Thanksgiving, get in the spirit of giving back to the community with OISS! On Monday, November 21th, we will be volunteering at the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK) to help prepare for their Thanksgiving dinner for the New Haven community. On Thanksgiving Day, DESK provides meals for approximately 1000 people, and so we will be helping them prep the ingredients before the big day! We will be working in a kitchen so please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, and wear closed-toed shoes.
We will meet in front of DESK (311 Temple St) at 11:45am and working from 12 to 3pm. If you are unable to volunteer for the full shift, feel free to sign up for 1.5 hours slots (12:00 – 1:30pm or 1:30 – 3pm). Afterwards, we will return to OISS and have a small celebration and appreciation with pie and seasonal beverages!
This event is not suitable for children. Open to Yale Community - ages 15 and up.
