Dear St. Anthony Family and Friends,
Thank you so much for checking in to see how you can help with ARISE!
Each day of the month is broken into several donation opportunities. If you, your family, or your group wants to provide more than one item, please check each signup button you'd like to be responsible for on that day and enter the same name and email address for each one. Please list in the comments what you intend to bring and, if appropriate, your group name. If you are not staying to greet and serve, please make a note of that in the comments. Groups will then need to coordinate outside this tool what each group member will contribute.
On the night(s) you volunteer to serve, you should arrive at the St. Anthony Hall at 8pm (enter at the side door by the kitchen). You and the rest of the volunteers for the night will set up as directed by the parish host, and the CCS site manager will let the men into the Hall around 8:45pm. All work is done in the evening only. The CCS Manager serves breakfast in the morning.
If you have any questions at all, if you need to schedule food drop-off for earlier in the day, or if you would rather not use this tool to signup, please contact Sharon Fox at 425-277-6210 or email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thanks in advance for your service to the homeless in our community!
Peace and Blessings,
The ARISE Team
