We welcome your willingness to serve those in need through our PADS meal program. Faith Church provides the evening meal for the shelter on the 3rd Monday of each month. So that no one person is overwhelmed with providing the entire meal, we are dividing the meal up and are asking volunteers to provide just a part of the meal. You will be sent a reminder the week before your selected date and will get a text a couple days prior to give specifics about how many people are to be served. When signing up, in the comments section, you can enter what you will be bringing so that a delicious meal can be coordinated by your "team". It's especially helpful for the entree volunteer to let us know what you will bring so we can plan the side dishes accordingly. There is also a space to sign up to be a volunteer on the evening of our meal. These volunteers can help serve and clean up and can stay to eat and socialize with the residents. Meals are served at 6:15. Food should arrive 5:30-5:45ish. You can either drop off food and go, or stay and help serve and eat with the others. Volunteers can arrive at 5:30/6:00ish to help with the meal and stay until 9:00pm. If something comes up that interferes with your ability to provide as you have promised, please contact Natalie Smigel at 815-993-2126 as soon as possible.
