Gilda's Club

Gilda's Club Grand Rapids provides free emotional healthcare to families and friends who are faced with cancer or grieving the death of someone in their life due to any cause.  Each night people, young and old, come to Gilda's for special programming including dinner.

On February 21st NJHS members will come together to help those in need.  As a group, we need to prepare a meal including the main dish, side dish, salad, and dessert for 80 people.  There are several ways you can help:www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0545A4AD22A0F94-gildas 

1. Make a momentary donation to go towards the meal
2. Prepare a dish or two
3. Come serve and clean up.

Please consider helping with one or more of the options.  We are thinking of making various casseroles for the main dish.  To feed 80 people, we need approximately 10 casseroles,  6 large salads with toppings, as well as desserts.  Please go to sign up genius.
