About

The Rotary Club of Memphis brings back Cafe du Memphis on Saturday, May 21st at the Malco Summer Drive-In. This event benefits the Dorothy Day House and the Rotary Foundation. The Dorothy Day House provides transitional housing and support to families experiencing homelessness in Memphis, TN.

Volunteers are needed to serve as food runners, cashiers, assist with set up and break down of tents/signage, and help to direct traffic throughout the venue. All volunteers will receive a 15-minute orientation upon arrival. It is important you arrive at your scheduled shift start time for orientation. See the shifts below for details. Please note: we ask volunteers to be flexible. On the day of the event, we may ask you to shift to a different position based on the need at the moment. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to serve and support the Dorothy Day House while enjoying a fun event and great food!
