Urban Ministry

As most of you know, serving dinner at the Urban Ministry has been an outreach program that Hindu Society has successfully undertaken for many years. We are proud that Hindu Society has been recognized for this program by the NC State Government. The Hindu Society has been given four days in the year (the fourth Wednesday in March, June, September and December) plus additional days based on interest/need to prepare and serve dinner for the homeless at the Urban Ministry's Potter House at the intersection of Lee and Eugene. Each dinner is sponsored by a member of the community who with the help of the coordinator puts together a menu and buys the groceries. A team of enthusiastic volunteers of all ages, join in two shifts to prep, cook, serve and clean up after dinner. Sponsors and volunteers in the past have expressed a feeling of satisfaction of having given to the community and the sense of camaraderie they have experienced working with a group. The next Urban Ministry day will be updated soon. Some members are sponsoring this event. If you are willing to co-sponsor this or a future dinner, or help volunteer to cook/serve, please contact Nalini Sankar at 336-207-0999.
