Friends of RITI
Hi friends - how exciting to be back this year! Our goal is to offer RITI this season each Monday night Dec - March but are only asking for volunteers initially for Decemeber and will take it one week at a time. If we find that we can not fill all the spots one week, we will let Roof Above know that, regretably, we are withdrawing for the rest of the season.
- Per Roof Above’s guidelines, all neighbors participating in RITI who are 12 & up will have to show proof of vaccination to be assigned to a church.
- From Roof Above regarding vaccinations: Vaccination of RITI volunteers and staff are not required but are highly encouraged. As such, Advent’s church leadership believes that volunteers in the presence of our RITI neighbors must be fully vaccinated. It’s how we love our neighbors in return for them being vaccinated.
When signing up, there are some spots specificaly designated by church but most spots are avaiable for [ALL] from any church to take (except for Pillow Treats, please don't sign up for more than one week). After signing up, you will receive two emails; almost immediately a confirmation from Sign Up Genius and then before you're scheduled to volunteer, a second email with specific details about the expectations, addresses, contact info etc. It's ok if you're new to RITI, there will always be someone around who has done it before. For ALL the details background info on RITI and more, information can be emailed; request that from Caroline [email protected]
