Activity Nights – Scheduling Appointments Available
Group and Family Activity Nights are held Monday through Thursday from 6:30 to 8 pm. Volunteers will learn about poverty in our community, take a tour of our programs, and help in a service project, such as sorting food, restocking shelves, or assembling hygiene kits. All ages are welcome, but we cannot accommodate groups larger than 25 people. Click here to see the schedule.
The Circles Initiative has a critical need for volunteer Allies. This national program works with families who live below the federal poverty level and who have a strong desire to move from government assistance to self-reliance. These individuals, called Circle Leaders, have completed a 16-week program and now meet weekly on Tuesday nights to develop new goals and objectives. A key component to the success of a Circle Leader is the support of their “Allies,” trained volunteers willing to meet for an hour, twice a month on Tuesday evenings. Allies are first and foremost friends working to build relationships of trust and encouragement as Circle Leaders work on their goals and plans. It is a wonderful way for adult volunteers to make a meaningful difference in another’s life. To learn more about the service opportunities connected with Circles, click here
