Re: Martha’s Kitchen visits:
Morning Volunteers Needed
Martha’s Kitchen is short summer volunteers for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Morning volunteers do food preparation work such as washing/cutting fruits and vegetables, making sandwiches, stripping turkeys and various other tasks. Join a group of very nice early morning volunteers. You must be at least 16 years old, bring an apron and wear closed-toe shoes with non-slip soles. For more information call Edita Cruz, Executive Director, at 408-293-6111.

Help MK.  Every Tuesday of the month we meet in our church parking lot at 3:00 pm and carpool for our visit to Martha’s Kitchen. We work from about 3:30 pm to 5:15 pm and then we return to our church parking lot at about 5:45 pm. If you would like to join us please contact Sue Sullivan at (408) 230-2198
