See What’s Cookin’

Perhaps you would like to help by preparing or serving meals in our community kitchen, particularly the noon meal Monday thru Friday. The shift schedules during the week are 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. for the evening meal. We can also use help on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you would like more information, please contact Gerry Waldo, our Kitchen Director, by phone at 860-225-0211, x-110, or write to Gerry via the “Contact Us” function on our website.

Walk With Us

Create a walk team of friends, family, congregation or work colleagues and join us in the annual Walk Against Hunger on the first Sunday in May. The Walk is the Friendship Center’s major fundraiser, and all funds raised help to feed our shelter residents and soup kitchen guests all through the year. Or, join the Friendship Center “Archangels” walk team. It’s great fun!
For more information, contact Barbara Lazarski, our Director of Communications and Development, by phone at 860-225-0211, x-202, or write to Barbara via “Contact Us.”

Hop On Board

Be A Friend

The Friends of the Friendship Service Center are the “icing on the cake” when it comes to volunteers. The Friends meet monthly on second Tuesdays at noon (except during the summer). The auxiliary adopts thoughtful and creative projects that give an added and important dimension to Friendship Center life.
