Margaret Shafer Community Picnic

This Fifth Avenue tradition is now in its 19th 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 meal among friends. This event 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. For details, including our location in the park, contact Meredith Fleck ([email protected]) or Seamus Campbell ([email protected]). In the event of rain, the picnic moves to Jones Auditorium.
