Family Promise Volunteer Opportunities & Needs for 2020

We have been blessed to be supporting our neighbors without homes for over 20 years through the Family Promise (AKA Interfaith Hospitality Network) Program. In March and May, due to Covid, we supported a young pregnant mom, Simone, and one year old daughter, Samantha, and put them up in a motel. We were thrilled to assist with baby items, furniture, toys and clothes for the new baby, Nala (pictured), and family as they moved into their new home May 28! Thank you SO MUCH to all who donated items, delivered and put together furniture for Simone, especially our Women’s Connect Group. The family is so appreciative of your love and kindness.

 

Have you served with Family Promise host week and really felt called to do even more?

We are in need of an Assistant Site Coordinator (1 or 2 needed) – to provide assistance in recruiting volunteers, covering supervisor shifts during host week as necessary, assist with organizing supplies and providing general back up support to our site coordinator. Email communication is important for this position.

Please contact Sue Mahlock , site coordinator, if you have interest in this position.

Supply Needs for 2020

We are filled up on clothing, dental, shampoo and lotion supplies right now. However, we do have need for about 50 individual Kleenex packs, new or used family DVDs and 3 dozen white washcloths.

We can always use more new or gently used Beanie babies for our children guests, as well as bingo prizes for both children and adults.

Any donations may be left behind the Mission desk and put into the carton marked Family Promise.

See our Family Promise Page for further information.
