Mary V. Quirk Clean-Up

Mary V. Quirk Clean-Up 
Saturday, December 3rd 
9 - 10:30 a.m. 
790 Main Street (parking lot in rear) 

This Volunteer Warren ACTION opportunity will be focusing on CLEANING - primarily the basement and second floor of the Mary V. Quirk community building. This space is used for multiple youth sports, youth activities, the Warren Rec Summer Camp, and community meeting space. It is in desperate need of some love and attention. 
 Supplies available on site are limited. So think of this as a BYOB -- Bring-Your-Own-Broom. We will be sweeping, mopping, disposing of debris, dusting, washing walls, and anything else we come across. Cleaning supplies to bring to share could be -- broom, dustpan, mop, bucket, bleach, lysol, various other cleaning liquids, trash bags, dust rags,  razor/scraper (paint removal), and any other cleaning products that would be helpful for a larger space. You may want to bring gloves for yourself. All of our work will be INDOORS.

For 22 years, the Auxiliary has organized the community effort that prepares and delivers holiday meals to the homebound, elderly and needy in Barrington, Bristol, Warren and Riverside. The holiday meals program serves over 200 people on Thanksgiving Day.

The Auxiliary could benefit from as many volunteers as we can muster to join in their annual assembly line which packages the prepared food and readies the complete meals for delivery throughout the East Bay. 

Thursday, Thanksgiving Morning, November 24th 

10:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. (approximate guess based on previous years)

St. Thomas's Church : 500 Metacom Avenue (kitchen in the rear)

*** The Auxiliary requests that volunteers do not bring their children, unless child is old enough (teen) where s/he could serve completely independent of their parents' assistance. Let's please observe their wish to ensure efficiency in their process. ***
