Volunteers should arrive at the location at 8:30 am
New Life Mission transforms the lives of women and children as progress through their program from homelessness to self-sufficiency in their 2-year program. These projects will provide uplifting and fun activities for their children, assist the staff in the common areas around the facility, and bless both facilities through prayer.
Project #1: For Kids Club
We will rent a bounce house and play outside on the playground with the kids. Expect about 10-15 kids. We will have sidewalk chalk and bubbles to help create a more playful experience along with the bounce house.
Project #2: Tidy-Up Team
We will be deep cleaning the laundry room and cleaning and organizing the parent storage area. In the laundry room, we will be cleaning behind washers & dryers along with baseboards and other deep cleaning needs. In the parent storage area, we will be cleaning and organizing car seats, strollers, playpens, and other deep cleaning needs.
Project #3: Prayer Team
This team will be walking around the campus praying over the entire facility. We will write prayer cards to leave on each apartment door as we pray over the women enrolled in the program at this campus and the staff in the office. Be sure to wear comfortable prayer shoes!
Contingency plan for Kids Club if it rains: Should it rain on Flight Day, we will have an indoor puppy party where the kids will have an opportunity to learn about caring for their puppy (from Proverbs 12:10: “The righteous care for the needs of their animals”). They will get to bring their own (stuffed) puppy home with its own collar and some Scooby Snacks.
Contingency plan for Prayer Team if it rains: Rather than walking outside, we will gather inside to pray. We will still write prayer cards for the women enrolled at this campus, but we will also write prayer cards for the women residing at the other campuses that will be delivered at a later time.
All teams will meet at Casa Carol at 8:30 am. The location in Melbourne will be provided upon signing up. Please plan to wear a mask.
