Triveni Mitra Mandal – Shelter Program


 Fill up  Food Shelter Form to sign-up for 2024 Shelter Program Participation



Namaskar Mandali!


The shelter program was a huge success in 2023. Our thanks go to the Triveni community and the efforts led by Ketaki Sontakke and Rupali Mahadeshwar. The 2024 effort will be led by Triveni members Sandip Vaidya and Diptee Vaidya.  


They will be reaching out to Triveni members to solicit support for this program. Interested members can also register for this activity by filling up the form. Most member groups donated money in the last two years. 


Currently the shelter offers three options as in previous years. Members can decide what works for them and follow that option.



Visit the Barron’s Center with food per the guidelines below and serve food as we have done in previous years. 



Deliver food to the Barron’s Center. Members will not serve food.



Donate equivalent to your lunch sponsorship ( typically $350 to $ 400) for your team. How do you donate for your team of 4 to 6 families? Details can be found at the bottom.

OPTION 1 (and 2)

Some tips for the team leaders:


Before the Event:


(1) Identify volunteers who will help contribute for the food, and help serve the food. The center recommends a team of eight people for a lunch event. Two or three of these could be kids aged above 12; typically a group of 5-7 families works out well.


(2) Lunch has to be planned for 180 people. Approximate expenses are $350-$400 per 'lunch event'.


(3) With Sandip and Diptee’s help, identify a convenient date, out of those available at the shelter.


(4) Upon finalizing the date, please email Ms. Brianna Carman at b.carman@shelterhousecincy.org . Please request her to confirm the date is available and provide your cell phone number. Our experience with Brianna is that she is pretty responsive (via email) and at the most you may have to send 2 emails. 


(5) About 8 or 10 days prior to your 'event', send Brianna a courtesy email letting her know you are bringing lunch to the Barron's center with - date, time and menu details.  


For the Event:


(1) Share the date with your team members. Plan on being there by 11 AM. The activity will take ~ 2 hours. Lunch starts promptly at 12 noon. Cooking facilities are available at the center if you need them. Please work this with Brianna in advance 


(2) Shopping: Per the shelter's request - Please try to provide a protein, vegetable, fruit, and dessert. Suggested lunch menu items on their website are:

·   Chicken Pot Pie, Salad, Lemonade, Brownies

·   Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Peas, Cookies

·   Lasagna, Corn, Garlic Bread, Fun-Size Candy


(3) GFS is one store that can fill in and keep your order ready for pick up. Please mention the Triveni account if you buy anything at GFS. 


(4) You can work any menu with Brianna. 


Day of the Event:


(1) Have each team member / volunteer sign the waiver form that you will receive from Sandip or Diptee



(2) Take a group photo of the volunteers at the event


(3) If there are any negative experiences, please let either Sandip or Diptee know


(4) If you have any suggestions for improvement, please let Sandip or Diptee know.


(5) Enjoy.
