Join us for our September event on Saturday, September 19th from 9am until noon. We will be sorting food and/or hygiene items to prepare them for distribution at Daily Bread Ministries Warehouse located at 6351 Rittiman Road. The plan is to work until 11:30am, leaving ourselves 30 minutes to clean up. We need men and women on this one! Because it is a warehouse environment there are some safety precautions we must take.
Closed toe shoes are required, preferably with ankle support and sturdy, non-slip soles. Sneakers are fine but must be able to be tied. No loose shoes, absolutely no open toes, flip flops, or heels. Modest shorts may be worn, but no tank tops (t shirts preferred) and definitely no spandex, tight fitting, or overly loose clothing. Families are welcome, but children that come must be with parents at all times. Again, it is a working warehouse and could be dangerous for small children or unsupervised children. No running around and no “hide and seek” games or any horseplay will be allowed.
Daily Bread is a fantastic ministry that helps distribute fresh food as well as canned goods to those in need. We are very excited to be working with them once again! We MUST provide them with a headcount in advance, so please RSVP on our public FB invite with # of people coming or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
We had another fantastic outreach at the Courthouse. Unfortunately, we had several no-shows who did not contact us in advance, which puts us in a very precarious place with the court. If you can make future outreaches, please come if you RSVP or let us know if something comes up! Fortunately we had some new volunteers who were absolute rock stars and filled in the gaps admirably. Once again we saw angry, bitter, spiteful girls coming in who left with smiles, laughter, and a real sense of identity, who they were created to be, and the realization that they were important and valued. This continues to be such a life-impacting outreach, we are very excited about our last one of 2015 (mark your calendars now for October 17th from 8:30am-1:00om) and are very excited about next year’s program as well.
