CASA Goes to Women’s Lunch Place (In Person)
- Saturday, February 11, 2023
- 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
TBE’s Community of Adult Social Action (CASA) invites you to help prep and serve lunch to Women’s Lunch Place clients.
Mayor Wu, of Boston, regards Women’s Lunch Place as a treasure supporting women with hunger, homelessness, and poverty issues while providing healing, hope, and dignity. This site was opened in November, 40 years ago, in a Newbury Street church basement serving eight lunches several times a week. Today it serves daily over 100 two healthy meals and snacks and provides health benefits and personal products. Programs in yoga, art therapy, job placement, housing searches and access to computers for research and reading are available.
To attend this event, please RSVP to Ilene Pincus at [email protected]. Four volunteers are needed.
Community of Adult Social Action (CASA) volunteers work together on small-group social justice activities to make connections, build community, and express our Jewish values. For more than fifteen years, CASA has been building community and connection within TBE by bringing together congregants to engage in meaningful Tikkun Olam in the Greater Boston community. We organize small groups of 5-10 adult TBE congregants to volunteer at sites like Community Servings, the Prison Book Program, Waltham Community Farm, Rosie’s Place, Pine Street Inn, and the Greater Boston Food Bank. Joining a CASA event requires no long-term commitment and no advanced training. These are true “one off” events, meaning that when you sign up for a CASA event you are committing only to that one event. There are no meetings or future obligations. However, we find that many of our CASA volunteers enjoy the events so much they choose to come back and join us again and again.So join a CASA event, and build your connections within TBE while helping to repair the world.
