St. James’s is once again assisting CARITAS by hosting nightly intake services for homeless women starting on October 19. Our host period continues each evening through December 20, 2013. CARITAS is using the Michaux House basement to provide centralized intake for its overnight guests before transporting them to their evening accommodations at other congregations. Two to three volunteers are needed each evening (generally 5:45- 6:30 p.m.) from October 19 through December 20 to provide hospitality and oversight of the building. CARITAS staff are on-site to handle all intake activities and volunteers are not required to do so. The bus will generally depart by 6:30 p.m. but volunteers should plan to stay until it leaves.
Please consider offering your help to this service project during the 2013 holiday season. A sign-up sheet is in the narthex on Sundays and in Michaux House during Wednesday evening dinners. You may also contact Margaret Corwin directly at email@example.com with questions or if you wish to volunteer.
