family promise 2020
Welcome to our volunteer opportunity for Family Promise.
As with everything else this year, the way we are helping Family Promise of the North Shore Boston, will be different. While we have been comfortable in our own homes, the guests of Family Promise have been in the day center on Rantoul St. in Beverly, since the middle of March. There has been no rotation. The host congregations have been asked to donate to the meal ministry by submitting a donation on line or mailing a Stop and Shop gift card to the center.
This year our schedule is as follows:
Christ Church Hamilton Host: Sunday June 21- July 4 and July 26-August 8 4 weeks total
Hamilton Congregational Host: July 19 - July 25 August 30- September 5 2 weeks total
I have been told that June and July the families will still be at the center. After that, Christ Church and then Hamilton Congregational may be hosting. Recently there was a survey sent to determine when the rotation should start. The board of FP and host congregations will determine when that is to happen, once the results are tallied from the survey.
Family Promise requests that we donate up to $20 per day for meals. You may do so by copying the following link in your browser: https://familypromisensb.networkforgood.com/projects/95845-family-promise-guest-food-needs. This donation is tax deductible.
As things change, I will be in contact to let you know when we will begin the rotation again. Thank you for your flexibility.
Things have changed and I have included an additional 2 weeks. We WILL NOT be hosting in our facility this year but we need donations.
Blessings to you,
