Transitional, 29 W. 12th Street
The DRC will be sponsoring a meal for Tender Mercies on May 6th at 5:30. Tender Mercies is a downtown organization that provides housing for people with mental illness. The meal will consist of Kroger's chicken, side dishes, drinks, and disposable dinnerware. Our group will also be serving dinner to the residents that night.
If you would like to provide a side dish, a gallon drink such as milk, iced tea, etc., paper products, or a cash donation for the chicken, please e-mail Ginnie Schlosser at firstname.lastname@example.org or there will be a sign up sheet at the April meeting, along with any questions as she will be coordinating the meal. We will also need servers that day.
The details are as follows:
Group: Downtown Residents Council
Date: 5/6/16 (Friday)
Meal Time: 5:30 PM (Dinner)
Meal location: Transitional, 29 W. 12th Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
# of residents being served: 16
Parking: Tender Mercies parking lot or street parking on 12th, Vine, or Central Parkway
Notes: Please note, we cannot always predict how many residents will attend meals. Tender Mercies residents come and go independently throughout the day for appointments, work, family visits, etc. Normally, the majority of residents will attend meals, but that can vary. However, it helps us tremendously to have leftovers so that when residents come home they have a meal to eat, have food to snack on throughout the day, or have something available if a meal isn’t scheduled.
The American RED CROSS is sponsoring MEGA BLITZ, A Cause for ALARM. MAY 7, 9 am
The American Red Cross Goal is to install 1000 smoke detectors in a single day. Working in teams of 3 (installer, educator, recorder), 400 volunteers will replace batteries or install new smoke detectors as well as educate on fire safety. This would be a great opportunity for people to get out into the neighborhoods and could possibly help save a life!
Communities targeted are OTR, Walnut Hills, Mt Auburn, and Newport.
The event starts and concludes at the Horseshoe Casino. All tools and training will be provided.
