Around the Twin Cities
Dear Friends and Supporters,
I'm putting out a call for help! This week is MEA weekend. Schools are closed so we expect our clothes closet to be extra busy with families looking for items for their kids (who will be with them!) for school and the coming cold weather.
Unfortunately many of our regular core group of weekly volunteers will be out this week for various reasons, so we are in GREAT need of extra help this week. There are two opportunities to serve:
Thursday - sorting clothing, going through donations, sizing and hanging-up clothes, organizing household goods and toiletries. This is our "getting ready" day so that Friday can go more smoothly and we can be better able to help those in need. Anytime between 10:30 am and 3 pm. We are not open to the public on Thursday; this is an internal work-day.
Friday - Our regular weekly free clothing ministry to the community. Again, anytime between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. We need extra hands to help people find what they need, check them out, pickup and rehang clothes, and generally help us keep the process moving.
Any amount of time you can give - even an hour - will make a difference this week. Please consider this call for help, and if you can come on Thursday or Friday, please let me know (). If you can't come, you can help by sharing this appeal.
We always have a hot pot of coffee going, great crews, lovely fellowship and you can spend some time in an atmosphere of LOVE for our brothers and sisters in Christ who struggle with poverty.
How can you resist? :-)
Thank you for your attention to this request.
