The Got Lunch Program is starting up again. Here is how you can help: Twelve routes are set up for food deliveries. This year they are developing a farm-fresh vegetable drop-off for 2017 for six of the routes each week. Alternating between the two groups, they are look- ing for a driver from each faith community who can follow with a vegetable drop-off. Drivers will not need to have the training because they are following.
They would like a faith community to commit to one of the routes for each week. For more information please call Paula at 524-0668 or e-mail her at email@example.com
Mark your calendars:
May 6, 2017 and June 3, 2017. Wanakee will need your help to get ready for another great year of camping for our children and youth.
Help Needed in Nursery
Due to the dedication of Stephen Read, there is always an attendant in our church nursery on Sunday mornings. Stephen has offered to be in the nursery each Sunday; however, the safe sanctuary rule states that we should always have two attendants. Stephen already has a list of faithful volunteers for the nursery, but we need a few more. If you enjoy being with young children and would feel comfortable if someone arrived with a baby to care for, please let either Stephen (393-6436 or 524-1312) or Nancy Morley (524-2580) know of your willingness to help.
Volunteer Training Sessions will be March 5th from 1-3pm and March 7th from 6:30-8:30pm. If you can help in this manner please come to one of these training. Or go to Volunteer coordinator. We need at least one volunteer to help with volunteer communications, recruiting, and organizing. Link to volunteer: http://signup.com/go/RkuSqg.
The two toughest slots to fill currently are the 10pm to 6am overnight shift and the 6am-9am morning shift. Before volunteering in the shelter, a volunteer must attend a 2 hour training session and have a background check completed (reference, criminal and sex offender).
Last month we had many helpers – both the faithful ones who are always there and some newcomers. With plenty of help, things went smoothly. We had enough casseroles to serve the more than 50 who came to receive the free meal including a couple that were do- nated unexpectedly. Thank you for those we knew were coming and for those surprise dishes that were also needed.
Barbara French will be back from Florida by the time of the next Friendly Kitchen. Be sure to give her this same great support. Thank you, Nancy Morley
