Abraham's Tent at BEKI 2020

The week of February 10 through February 17, 2020, we will be hosting a group of men experiencing homelessness this winter as part of the area-wide Abraham's Tent project with Columbus House, during which each week a church/synagogue hosts the group.  Once again, BEKI and Church of the Holy Spirit - West Haven will be partnering for this project.  We will need LOTS of help both before and during that week: bringing in equipment, setting up, shopping, cooking, serving both early breakfasts and dinners, dining with the men and spending some time with them in the evening, providing overnight supervision, etc.

Please choose ALL of the tasks on specific days that you are willing to help out with. Also, if you are signing up for more than one person (e.g., family, friend, co-worker), please complete either a separate sign-up for each or multiple sign-ups for you.  We need to know specifically how many volunteers are committed to what tasks and who they are. 

You will receive automatic reminders from SignUpGenius about 4-5 days in advance of your slot and also we will be personally in touch.

Thank you so much for your generosity and consideration in this wonderful project.  If you need to reach us with questions, please contact Darryl Kuperstock (203-215-8555 [email protected]) or Steve Werlin (617-721-8213 [email protected]).
