Make & Serve Dinner - Michaelle House for AIDS/HIV Patients

Description:  Michaelle House is a residence that provides loving care for 10 men and women suffering from HIV/AIDS.   The “House” began as one person’s act of kindness for people who were sick, isolated and homeless.   The residents simply ask for care, compassion and dignity.  They love having interaction from the outside wold.

Dinner:  We ask groups to cook and serve dinner for the residents.   The house has a full kitchen with pots, pan, plates, serving utensils, etc.  If your group would like to stay for dinner, visit, play games or watch a movie, the residents would love it!

Dinner Time: Please arrive by 5:00pm or earlier if needed and refer to the meal preparation guidelines below.  Dinner is served at 5:30pm and groups finish by 7:30pm.  Please arrive as early as you need in order to prepare the meal.
