Family Promise at First Unitarian

Family Promise August 12-19, 2018

Family Promise of Greater Des Moines (FPGD) assists families experiencing homelessness through a network of 14 area faith-based host congregations that provide clean, safe overnight shelter and nutritious meals for a period of one week every 3 months.  The host congregations provide each family with a private room for sleeping as well as dinner and food for breakfast and for packing a lunch.

 

Its First Unitarians turn to host 3 families  ( up to 14 people) from August 12-19, 2018.  These are the volunteer positions that are available.

Meals: Make part or all of an evening meal. Needs to be delivered to church by 5:45 or can be made at church. If you would like to make the entire meal, please add your name to every slot. We will also be serving hot breakfast on Saturday morning.

Kitchen Clean up: Serve dinner at 5:45, wash dishes, clean kitchen, pack up leftovers for families to take the next day.  Time is from 5:30 to 7:30 (or when done).

Evening Host:  You will be a support for the families, could include playing games with the children, talking with adults, or reading a book by yourself if there are no needs. Time is from 5:00 to 8:30

Overnight Host: Sleep at the church.  Come at 8:15 and leave at 7:00 am the next morning

Drivers: Transport families to/from West Minster Church in a 15 passenger van.  Pick up is at 5:00 pm at West Minster and between 6:00 and 7:00 am at First Unitarian.  You do not need a chauffeur license.  Family Promise carries the insurance for the van.

Laundry: Pick up bags of laundry on Sunday morning, wash and bring back to church within 2-3 weeks.

If you would like to do multiple positions, that is great.  Just fill in all sections or days.
