Margaret Shafer Community Picnic

This popular Fifth Avenue tradition returns for its 21st year!

Every summer our volunteers gather in Central Park to serve a picnic lunch to neighbors in our community who are experiencing homelessness or simply in need of a relaxed meal among friends. This event, part of our longstanding befriending ministry, is named in honor of the late Margaret Shafer, our former associate for outreach and a beloved friend and advocate of the homeless in our community.

Volunteers are needed to bring food, serve, set up/clean up and be part of the fellowship. To sign up, complete the registration form. You will receive your work assignment, and our location in the park, shortly before the day of the event. In the event of rain, the picnic moves to Jones Auditorium.
