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.

They 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 weekday morning.
Looking 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.
In 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!
