Spirit Fest welcomes visitors every Thursday

February 12, 2012 by  

Spirit Fest invites new volunteers to join. A free community dinner served and prepared by volunteers every Thursday night, Spirit Fest is held at 527 St. SE in Auburn, Washington. Come to volunteer your time in preparing or serving meals. Information about community resources is in high demand also, so if you know of or are involved in community outreach, this event is a great opportunity to share flyers and brochures.

This weekly community supper is what remains of the generosity and love from the former White River Presbyterian Church, which folded over two years ago. Dedicated congregants and community volunteers continue to come together, volunteering their time and energy to feed 75 – 100 people per week. All time and supplies are donated by former congregation members, neighbors, and the Auburn Food Bank. By bringing people together to serve and to partake, the spirit of the White River community endures.

Recipients arrive up to an hour before the meal is served, seeking warmth, friendship and conversation. Once a month a doctor, a nurse, and a counselor from the South King medical clinic provide information and access to prescriptions. These gatherings are a way to disseminate information about any and all social service opportunities available in the community. For those involved with any health, hygiene, emergency shelter, education, or employment services, it’s an ideal opportunity to spread the word with services like flyer printing and brochure printing.
