One of our largest problems is FURNITURE, not the donation of furniture, but the transportation of this furniture!
When our families leave our shelter they often leave in need of kitchen tables, chairs, couches, beds, to name the biggest items. We have gracious donors who give us amazing pieces of furniture... but CANNOT transport this furniture.
We have families who need furniture but cannot transport and we have donors who want get rid of furniture but cannot transport it. And this is our issue. What WE need is the middle person who can transport!
Family Promise is forminga group of people with trucks or trailers who are willing to volunteer with us on-call with a week or two of notice once every month or two.
Jobs would include:
IF this sounds like something you are ABLE to do, please reach out! We would LOVE to work with you. Feel free to rope in any friends or family who may also fit this bill.
Children continue to have birthdays even though they are in a homeless shelter. YOU have the power to make sure their special day feels truly special by bringing a birthday cake to our Day Center or purchasing something off of their wish list. Show these children that our community cares and help bring some sparkle into a child's experience in shelter. To inquire about our next birthday in shelter, just shoot us an email via the link below!
We invite groups once-a-month to come onsite for a tour, service projects and the chance to learn first hand about the issue of family homelessness. Groups can also host fundraisers and donation drives on our behalf within their own communities. We welcome corporations, schools and faith communities to contact us to get the conversation started.
Stop by weekdays after school to offer help in math, read a book with a kid or play games
On Saturdays we invite volunteers into the building to help in a number of ways - bake a special treat with our kids, organize an amazing craft, help garden or plug in in other ways.
