Continuing Volunteer Opportunities
Community Dinner Project: Building community through food and conversation
Thank you to those who have already signed up to either open their homes or participate in a Community Dinner! This is an amazing opportunity and one that I encourage you to consider. The Community Dinner Project hopes to invite Tucker & Glover parents/guardians to have a conversation, share meaningful stories, good food, and a sense of community. The Community Dinner Project provides an opportunity to meet others from the Tucker and Glover school communities, connect to learn more about each other, and share ideas for how to strengthen our community for our kids to thrive. This project is sponsored by our joint Diversity Committees and is adapted from a nation-wide model, The People’s Supper. We hope to use this opportunity to grow and build our community while celebrating our diversity.
As a kick-off event, we hope to have as many volunteers as possible to host a Community Dinner in their home. Dinners will be held on 4/25/19 and 4/27/19. Each dinner will have families from both schools. To sign up to be a host and/or to sign up to be a guest at one of the dinners, please log on to https://goo.gl/forms/
