Foothills Unitarian & Congregation Har Shalom

FFH Jan. 20-27th 2019

Dear Faith Family Hospitality Volunteers,

We have another opportunity to host families experiencing homelessness. There are lots of fun, easy, and meaningful volunteer jobs. Please consider signing up and together we can provide a week of shelter and hospitality to families in our community!

Dinner Preparers: It's IMPORTANT to note WHAT you plan to bring in the "Comment" area. This helps to balance out what we are serving and avoid duplications - like spaghetti two nights in a row. If you don't know what you are bringing - please return to this site as soon as you decide and enter it. Let's create as varied a menu as possible. Milk & other beverages are provided, no need to bring. Simple things like sandwiches & chips, mac & cheese, chicken nuggets & fries are welcome.

Overnight hosts: If you are new to overnight hosting please note that in the comment section so that we can be sure to equip you with everything you need to feel confident. If you have served as overnight host before perhaps you would consider seeking out a night with a volunteer new to overnight hosting. 

All volunteers who sign up will receive an email on the Friday prior to our hosting to let you know exactly how many guests we are expecting (Dinner Preparers - don't forget to count yourselves and the 2 evening hosts as you plan your meal size.)

Remember - Your children are always welcome to join you in volunteering, we are prepared for children and welcome yours as well as our guests'. 

Danue Laborde & Marla Nelson will be the coordinators for this week.  Either Danue or Marla will be at the church each night at 5 pm to open the building.

PRIMARY CONTACT:  Danue Laborde       [email protected]       970-691-5891

Thank you for stepping up once again to help families in our community!

 

Have you considered volunteering at the FFH Day Center?
