Family Promise Volunteers - Thank You!
Thank you to our youth and adult volunteers who volunteered on Sunday, January 11 at the United Methodist Church in Scotch Plains. Five homeless families spent the week living at the church through Union County's Family Promise Program (www.familypromiseuc.org). Our youth group made a delicious dinner and played with the children of the families. Barbara Bach, Cathy Harris and Deidre Coolidge all took overnight shifts to provide assistance and supervision to the families. This is a great way to directly help the homeless in our community. Our next opportunity to volunteer for Family Promise will be in March. Please contact Cathy Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-723-3362) or Erica Webber (email@example.com or 908-233-4561) if you would like to volunteer.
