Social Justice Education/Action Activities
Anyone can volunteer to prepare food for the women at the Sunday night homeless shelter.
Invite friends and neighbors to join you in this rewarding project. Food preparation is all that's really needed. However, it's always a rewarding experience to actually come to the REST shelter and dine with our lady guests.
Extra food is needed on first Sundays for the Mill St. shelter. Sign up on the board in the foyer or contact: email@example.com 453-6221
The homeless ladies seem to crave hugs. They light up at the mention of hand reflexology, foot rubs, manicures and hair stylings.
If you're interested in doing this kind of hands-on outreach, contact firstname.lastname@example.org - 453-6221.
Please remember to buy white socks and nonperishable food items for our homeless friends. Just leave them in the foyer. And rest assured that they will be appreciated.
Shelter volunteers this week include: Lee, Kristen, Bev, Jes, and Candace.
