Mark your calendars now for CARITAS shelter week, scheduled for February 15-21. Many volunteers look forward to participating in this important ministry and come back year after year to offer hospitality to parents and children who reside in the CARITAS shelter program. Some 35 women, men, and children will feel the warmth of our building and the loving embrace of “doers” who serve them. Co-leaders Amanda Roberts and Meg Stott, and Sharon Wayne, program activity leader greatly need your help! A host of volunteer roles need to be filled including meal preparation (breakfast, dinner, and lunch), program activities like Bingo and board games, assistance with homework, help with laundry and showers, arts, and crafts, coordination of special offerings like physician, dentist, and barber/beautician, and most importantly, ministry of presence and offering of listening ears and loving hearts!
