Sign up for an "Open Night"! Spooner House has a great crew of community groups and area congregations that diligently prepare the evening meal on the same day each month. There are some dates though that do not have a consistent group that prepares the meal and such, are "Open Nights" that we look to fill. The volunteer opportunity would include: preparing a menu, bringing in the food, and then using our kitchen to prepare and serve the dinner meal for our residents.

Interested? Contact Kate at kpipa@actspooner.org or (203) 225-0453 x 102 to find out available dates.
