CARITAS is February 18-25, 2017

We are hosting 32 men!

Please sign up to be a volunteer online. Online sign up is available through Access ACS. We have created Online Sign Up Instructions with three steps to help you use Access ACS.

Sign Ups Available for Daily Needs:

  • Bake 64 Cookies – We need 64 cookies per day for lunches: 32 ziploc bags with 2 cookies per bag. Please bring the cookies to the church on the morning of an assigned day.
  • Wash Dishes – We’d like to serve our guests using non-disposables (plates, glasses, silverware).  We need two people each night to help scrape plates, load the industrial dishwasher, and put away the clean dishes.
  • Spend the Night – This can be two men, two women, married couples, or a parent and their youth. It requires making coffee, setting out a Continental breakfast in the morning, and handing out the packed lunches.

Sign Ups Available for Special Needs/Activities:

  • Cot Set Up – Help set up the cots before the CARITAS guests arrive. This can go toward your child’s volunteer hours. The Cot Set up will be on February 18, time TBA
  • Cot Take Down – Help clean up the cots after the CARITAS guests depart. This can go toward your child’s volunteer hours. The Cot Take Down will be on February 25, time TBA
  • Hot Breakfast – We want to send off our CARITAS guests with a hot breakfast on Saturday, February 25. Please sign up if you would like to prepare and/or serve food on Saturday morning.
  • Specialty/Additional Help – If you are available on a certain day and would like to plug in somewhere, please let us know, or if there is a special talent you would like to share with the CARITAS guests, please sign up. This can range from a spa night to Bible Study. If you’re interested, sign up and someone will be in touch with you to follow up.
