To make things easy on you, we’ve planned three days a week where people from our community can sign up to donate meal kits! Each day has a menu and a simple grocery list of items that are needed. This way, you’re helping us out tremendously by donating groceries and the women don’t miss out on the experience of cooking a meal together. Fellowship and connection are such important aspects of recovery!
When: Tuesday (delivered by 4:00 pm), Wednesday (delivered by 4:00 pm), or Saturday (delivered by 9:00 am or the night before)
Time Requirement: Varies
Requirements: Feed 15 people
Note: Food should be delivered to The Magdalen House on your scheduled day at your designated time!

Time Commitment: One hour and 20 minutes for meetings. Workshops will take up to two hours and 20 minutes, but there are only 1 – 2 slots per month.

When women in recovery celebrate sobriety milestones at our monthly Birthday Night, each celebrant is gifted a “birthday chip;” a small wooden token commemorating their special moment. You will pick up all supplies from The Magdalen House front porch and deliver or mail these to a specific list of women.
When: within 7 days after Birthday Night, which occurs on the first Monday of every month
Time Commitment: Varies
