FVJN- to-Lazarus House Mitzvah Dinners
Each month, FVJN volunteers prepare either a main dish, a salad or two sides (including vegetables), or a dessert. These meals currently feed 60 to 75 men, women and children at Lazarus House.
Volunteers are needed to sign up to participate in this monthly effort on the first
Wednesday of each month.
Next date: 3/5/14
Many food items available from Lazarus donations, and volunteers are encouraged to check and see what they can pick up to prepare.
Please contact coordinator Lisa Garcia to sign up to volunteer: elenanestela08@comcast.net.
or call (630) 201-5344.
Do you have a used file cabinet or two which you would like to donate? 
We’re setting up an office inside FVJN for our executive director, and are 
in need of some office furniture and supplies.
Please contact Rachel at Rachely@fjvn.org if you have a file cabinet, file folders, 
and any other office supplies to donate.
Thank you!
