From the organizer of the service project of the Poverty Law and Pro Bono & Public Service Opportunities sections:
For those of you planning to attend the AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. in January, I hope you’ll consider registering to participate in the service project that the Poverty Law and Pro Bono & Public Service Opportunities sections are co-sponsoring at Food and Friends. Food and Friends is a local organization that prepares and delivers specialized meals and groceries and offers nutritional counseling for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-challenging illnesses. More information about Food and Friends is available here: http://www.foodandfriends.org.
Participants will prepare, portion, or package food, pack groceries, or assemble meal and grocery packages for other volunteers to deliver to Food and Friends clients throughout the District. The organization has a really nice facility and offers a warm welcome and a well-organized, engaged experience for volunteers.
The project will be held on Monday, January 5 from 8:30am to 12:30pm. A bus will board outside of the front lobby entrance of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel at 8:15am and depart at 8:30, and will return participants to the hotel by 12:30pm. There is no additional charge to participate in the project.
The project can accommodate a maximum of 25 volunteers. I hope that many of you will be among them!
