PMD Volunteer Celebrating MLK Day with Elders 2015

Make/reheat, serve, and share soul food lunch and conversation with frail elders celebrating MLK Jr. Day in Boston's South End.

Befriend 20-40 frail, low-income, isolated elders (who used to be homeless or at risk of eviction) who are now housed permanently.
Building on PMD's 20+ years of experience helping this community of elders, PMD volunteers will cook/reheat, serve, and share lunch, then help elders share their thoughts and memories of the era/life and work of Dr. King.

All volunteers must be healthy and able to follow cooking instructions while standing in the hot kitchen, then serve, visit, and clean up.

This is a fragrance-free event. Volunteers may not use/wear scented hair/face/hand/body/clothing products,
including soaps and lotions.

Beginning 12/21/18, volunteers must register directly with PMD at http://www.pmd.org/s/MLK18.htm by 1/16/19.

Volunteers are asked to contribute $10 each to offset the cost of these meals. Financial hardship waiver choice available when you register at http://www.pmd.org/s/MLK19.htm
