Volunteers Opportunities at The Bethesda Project
The Bethesda Project is looking for volunteers to help with the deep clean at Trinity Church on Wednesday, July 31, 1pm. This
is a chance to be a good partner with one of their winter church
shelters, and also a chance to work closely with shelter guests and get a
special "inside" look! Let me know if available.
are looking for a few more volunteers to serve as a Computer Lab
Attendant at Our Brothers' Place. This involves opening up the computer
lab so guests can access housing resources, apply for jobs, etc. It is
pretty laid-back, occasionally assisting guests but no upper-level
technology experience needed. The schedule can be flexible, but we are
ideally looking for individuals that can commit to a couple hours on a
for small groups to cook and serve meals at our Safe Haven and
Permanent Supportive Housing! This would involve bringing food,
cooking, and interacting with our residents in a communal meal.
addition to t-shirts, shorts, and belts, they also have a high need
right now for wallets and new women's undergarments. Drop off at Our
Brothers' Place (907 Hamilton Street) at any time!
