Just One Day

As we prepare to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new, it is the perfect time to make a commitment to Sunday Suppers. But rather than relying on random emails asking for help through the course of the year, for 2019 we are launching something called "the Sabrina Project," inspired by our most recent Sunday Suppers volunteer.

Sabrina coordinated a group of friends to cover the entire supper last weekend. She did not volunteer on behalf of her church or some other organization. She just got together with people she knew - using Sunday Suppers as an excuse to spend time with friends - using time with friends as an opportunity to do good in the world. And in that moment, she became a community organizer.

Did you realize that it was that easy to become a community organizer?

As you might have heard, we no longer have regularly scheduled coverage for the 4th Sunday of every month. We've never had it for the 5th Sundays. So, inspired by Sabrina and her wonderful friends, we would like to ask you to become a community organizer for just one day in 2019.

Below you will find an outline of what is involved and what dates are open. We are asking that you volunteer to coordinate all aspects of a particular day by working with a group of friends or perhaps a club or group that you are a part of. We will meet you with the van and all the paper products to help set up and serve. 

Sabrina probably wouldn't consider herself a community organizer. But it doesn't have to be your full time job to make it true. Imagine the change we could make it in the world if everyone became a community organizer for one day each year.
