Volunteers Needed for Respite Shelter

Matthew 25:35 – “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

St. Augustine parishioners are needed as volunteers for a summer respite shelter at our neighboring church, Old First Reformed, located on 7th Avenue at Carroll Street. This will be the sixth year that St. Augustine will join with other congregations in Park Slope to provide a nutritious dinner and a safe, clean place to sleep for 10-12 male guests. St. Augustine’s week will be July 4 – 8, 2016 – Monday to Friday. The shelter program is coordinated by the non-profit social service agency CAMBA.

There are two different volunteer opportunities: (1) Volunteers needed to provide dinner; 3-5 people needed for each evening to prepare and serve dinner OR (2) Volunteers needed to stay overnight with another volunteer (2 people needed for each evening). St Augustine is committed to providing volunteers for the shelter the week of July 4 – 8, 2016. Can you find it in your heart to be a volunteer to either help with dinner or for the overnight?

There is a sign-up sheet at the entrance to the church. For more information, contact Jean Prahl: 347-637-0304
