Hospitality Opportunities You Don’t Want to Miss!

“To welcome the stranger is to acknowledge him as a human being made in God’s image; it is to treat her as one of equal worth with ourselves – indeed, as one who may teach us something out of the richness of experiences different from our own.”
Ana Maria Pineda

BEDSPlus Care, one of our mission partners, will provide transitional summer shelter for select clients from mid-June to mid-August. First Congo will host our neighbors the week of July 3rd!  We are looking for volunteers to sign-up for shifts and other once a week needs. (You are welcome to help during the week we are hosting, but you are invited to help at other times/locations throughout the summer as well!)

There will be three shifts per night with a minimum of two volunteers per shift, laundry once a week, breakfast supplies for a week and simpler meals supplied for 20 clients each evening.

You can sign up for one shift or as many different shifts that will work with your summer schedule as you would like. You can also sign up for a meal, laundry or supplies. This program will automatically send you reminders two days prior to your shift.  Questions?  Please contact Erin Molek or Meredith Onion.
