“Mother Goose on the Loose”, Friday, October 24, 31, 11am

Join the happy circle with Kay Lyons at a lap-sit story hour for children age 3 and under with a grown-up every Friday morning at the Greenfield Public Library.  Kay reads books, leads the group in hand rhymes, and uses puppets to teach animal sounds and other concepts new to the very young.  Children and grown-ups shake rattles, tap rhythm sticks, wave colored scarves, ring bells, and do knee bounces to simple sing-along tunes that everybody learns together.  Go on the loose with Mother Goose! It’s so much fun!  Each session is 45 minutes, with half an hour of structured activity and about fifteen minutes of visiting time.  No sign-up is required, and the program is free of charge thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Greenfield Public Library.

The Northampton Shelter Sunday Coalition needs your help raising critical funds for six agencies serving the hungry and homeless in Northampton on Saturday and Sunday, October 25 and 26, 2014.

The event happens from 10:00am to 2:00pm at designated collection sites on Saturday, October 25, and 10:00am-4:00pm as a door-to-door canvassing or collection site volunteer opportunity on October 26. Volunteers are needed both days so local non-profit agencies can help the homeless and hungry.

No experience necessary. Don’t want to do it alone? When you call or email to register, you can request to volunteer as a club, student group, or family.

By donating a few hours of your time, you will be supporting the work of the following organizations:  Grace House, Grove Street Inn/ServiceNet, Interfaith Emergency Shelter, MANNA Soup Kitchen, Safe Passage, and the Single Room Occupancy Project

Please share information about this opportunity widely and contact us at 582-9508 or volunteer@northamptonsheltersunday.org to sign up or if you have any questions. More information is also available at http://www.northamptonsheltersunday.org.

Just a couple hours of your time during this weekend could make a difference for your neighbors in need.
