CARITAS Overnight Volunteer
We need your help with this very important part of the CARITAS mission. We are looking for Shady Grove members to spend a night while our guests are here. Female volunteers are encouraged to sign up since we are hosting the Women's program! Detailed instructions will be emailed to you one week in advance and if this your first time, we will pair you with someone who has stayed before. Please sign up for the night that is your first choice. If you are available on other nights, please send that information to Jeff Cox at the email below.
- Arrive at church no later than 8:00 p.m.
- Maintain light refreshments during the early evening, visit with guests, and be a resource for the CARITAS staff member on site.
- Clean-up refreshments and lock up prior to lights-out; then sleep in nearby upstairs room. There are no overnight duties other than to be present in case of an emergency.
- In the morning you will arise early, start the coffee, put out the pre-prepared breakfast, pass out the bag lunches, and make sure the area is tidy and the building is secure after your guests leave at approximately 7:30 a.m.
If you have any questions concerning this important service, please contact Jeff Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
