Our next hosting week is coming up soon – from October 15 to 22!
Heide has finished organizing a new signup website that is more user friendly. To sign up to volunteer, visit the new site:
Click on the “get involved” button at the top of the page. Pick a task from the drop down menu. Each church has been assigned specific days for specific tasks. Click on your church’s name to find out which day(s) are available.
There will be a luncheon on October 8, for volunteer training and a review for those who have already volunteered. Please plan on attending this lunch to get to better know our partner church volunteers, and learn about some important updates that will be helpful for you to know as you volunteer in October.
We need to stock up on heavy blankets. We have many small and light ones but they will not provide enough warmth during the winter months. So, if you have any blankets and quilts, gently used, that you want to donate, we will be very grateful.
The Bed Race is now past. Thom Priest, Dean and Abby Leake, Craig Stiles and Debby Hackett ran the bed. The event was much fun and raised about $40,000 for the Family promise program. One homeless family was there. The happiness of the kids was very heartwarming and made me realized how much difference we made into their lives. So, many Thank you for all your support.
Thank you again for the gift of your time and money for the homeless families in this program.
