Family Promise

Family Promise 2019 Volunteer Dates

Family Promise is a wonderful way for our Sinai community to come together and directly impact the lives of others. Temple Sinai is one of many interfaith organizations who support  Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb and provide temporary room and board for  families in transition. Throughout the year, Temple Sinai members host up to four families that are in need of housing and hospitality. Temple Sinai provides the facilities and our congregants volunteer their time by providing meals, on-site hosting, and moving services.  All volunteer slots are appropriate to do alone, with your family or even a friend.

Our host weeks for 2019 are:

             * March 31 - April 7, and

             * December 29 - January 5, 2019

How Temple Sinai members can help:

  • Provide Dinner: Prepare or purchase dinner for the guests and yourself. Enjoy dinner and conversation with the guests, stay and help tidy up after dinner is over (nightly 6:00pm-7:30pm).
  • Overnight Hosts: Pack your, pajamas, pillow, bedding and toothbrush! Stay overnight at Temple Sinai with our guests before starting your day (nightly 7:30pm-8:00am, Saturday overnight stays until 9:00am).
  • Help with Move-in/Move-out Days: Arrive on Sunday to either help unload the guests’ belongings off the truck and set-up the rooms for our guests; or help load the guests’ belongings onto the truck and close the rooms (Sundays, 1-2 hours).
  • Saturday/Sunday Hosting: Spend a couple hours at Temple Sinai on Saturday or Sunday with our guests. Play games, read books, watch a movie, play on the playground, bring an activity, etc. (2-3 hours).
  • Miscellaneous Supplies: Donate supplies needed for upcoming host week. Possibilities include: paper goods, dry goods, lunch foods.
  • Laundry: Pick up a bag of linens and towels at the end of the week. Wash, dry, fold and return to Sinai later that week.
