Face to Face
Sundays 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, this includes travel time - start 9/13

You will be serving meals at this organization.

Guests are greeted with smiles, handshakes, and welcoming hugs.  Flowers, sometimes fresh, adorn each table.  Volunteers serve nourishing 3-course meals to guests who enjoy being waited on and interacting with their servers. We are distinguished both by what we do and the manner in which we do it.  Face to Face believes that each guest is the equal of each staff member and volunteer.

Sometimes we share a laugh; sometimes celebrate a birthday or other special occasion, sometimes a challenge is shared, but all the time there is a Face to Face connection with each and every guest.  As one guest said... I came for something to eat because crack had taken over my life.  I lost my family, my job, my home.  You fed me and you inspired me.”

Students will create their own time to meet with their LEVEL partner on campus.

Limited to 6 SSLC students.

LEVEL was created by a student on campus to partner students with differing abilities.  SLC students who choose LEVEL will be partnered with a student who is challenged with physical, emotional or learning differences.  SLC students will assist students with homework, transcribe notes from class or do whatever is needed to help another student achieve their academic potential.  The most important part of this service is to Level the playing field for students of differing abilities.  Through communication and relationship you will find ways to include others who we might otherwise not be included in the social, spiritual and psychological fabric of our community.
