Lazarus House Mitzvah Dinner
First Wednesday of each month.
Wednesday, April 3: 1 side dish needed!
Thank you so much to the following volunteers for providing the March Mitzvah Dinner to Lazarus House: Mike Yackley, Nancy Sohn, Felice Jones and Joanne Spitz!
We are in need of volunteers to sign up for this FVJN mitzvah project, each month of the year.
Consider signing up each month. This is a great family or group activity.
FVJN volunteers provide dinner the first Monday of each month to the guests at Lazarus House, a shelter located in St. Charles, which serves men, women and children in need in the Tri-Cities.
