As we come to the end of February I realize that in the past two months we've been busy at The Center. The constant flow of volunteers continues. Each week we have some new folks who join the team and help cook for the folks or pick up donated food at the various sites or deliver food and hygiene to the homebound. On Valentine's Day we had so many cnadies and hearts and valentine gifts donated by such a variety of people that just wanted the folks who come to The Center each day as well as our residents to know that they are loved and thought of.
Right now we're decorated for St. Pat's day. Seem a little early? We all know that the whole month of March is St. Patrick's month! And so we're ready. And we're getting ready to walk in the Belmar St. Pat's Parade on March 3. If you'd like to join us you are more than welcome. The more we have along the route - the warmer we will all be!
And of course the wheels are turning as we prepare for the New Jersey AIDS Walk on Mary 5. That day people will be walking in 5 different locations in New Jersey to show solidarity with folks living with HIV/AIDS and to raise some funds. We'll be starting our walk that day at The Center and walking around Asbury Park. The Walk starts at 1pm. Plan on joining us!
And then of course Center a la Carte will take place on Friday, May 17 at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel here in Asbury Park. This fabulous gala will gather 500 guests for a night of great food, great prizes, an open bar and a whole lot of fun. Tickets are $100 and are available at The Center or on the websiter.
And so we're busy - Its a good thing! And we do it together as a wonderful community of people.
Thanks for all you all do to keep the energy going.
