Lambert House

Meal Providers at Lambert House

Rain City Soccer Club (RCSC) has participated in the Meal Providers program at Lambert House since October 2009. This means that every second Thursday of the month is RCSC’s night to bring in a small group of soccer club volunteers to prepare and serve dinner to the LGBT youth who use Lambert House as a resource center. This experience is a great opportunity for club members to give back to the community while serving with other soccer club volunteers.
