Items and Volunteers Needed During Our CARITAS Week for Families

We are looking forward to hosting a group of homeless families from CARITAS in 11 days!  Our church considers this one of our highest callings as Jesus reminds us in Matthew 25: 35 ” For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in…”  Second Presbyterian Church is partnering with us again to ensure we fulfill the needs of this essential CARITAS program, which helps our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycles of addiction and homelessness to reclaim their dignity.

As always, it will take a tremendous group effort to ensure that we can provide meals, wash laundry, have supervision during the days and nights, and provide evening programs to make our guests feel welcome from June 23rd to June 30th.

Thank you for everyone who has already gone to our SignUpGenius page and signed-up to help in various ways.

We currently have a few spots remaining, including the following opportunities:

  • Providing breakfast (if you are unable to attend but want to supply the items, we can work with you on this.)

  • Covering a day or overnight shift.

  • Providing activities for one of the evenings.
