Assumption BVM Family Promise Volunteers
Thanks to all of you who have volunteered during our first three sessions of hosting homeless families in need. Thanks to your generosity of time and spirit, the program has been quite successful, and the number of truly grateful families being supported has continued to grow. Now, we ask that you find it in your hearts to continue to shower of families with love and support during our final hosting of the year which will take place from August 18th - 25th.
We need your help with the following:
* Bringing food at 6:00 for guests and volunteers. (At this time, plan for 9 adults and 1 toddler. Please be flexible as the count of people staying with us can go up or down at a moment's notice.) A menu for each night is provided. Please, bring your meal heated and in disposable containers. There is no need to bring paper products.
* Arriving at 6:00 to set up for dinner which will be served at 6:30, eat with guests, facilitate clean up, and stay until 9:00 when the next volunteers arrive, possibly interacting with our guests and their children or just being available.
*Arriving at 9:00 pm for the overnight shift until 5:00 am weekdays and 7:30 am on weekends. Again, may be interacting with guests or may be just being available for anything needed. Cots to sleep are provided, but please bring your own pillow, sheets, and blankets.
Please consider donating your time. Archdiocese clearances are required for those interacting with guests. The clearances are free. If you are just dropping off meals or making a donation, no requirements are required.
If you have any questions, please contact Rose Jacobs at 215-364-8131.
Thanks so much for volunteering!
