Volunteer Opportunities

NEW OPPORTUNITY Volunteers needed for respite center

CAMBA ran the summer shelter where volunteers from St Augustine and from other congregations in Park Slope helped prepare meals and overnight. The summer respite centers have now closed and winter respite centers have not yet opened. CAMBA needs volunteers to help at the temporary respites that are open in September. They especially need overnight volunteers at the two residences: Vanderveer (3114 Glenwood Rd., Brooklyn on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays) and St. George’s (800 Marcy Ave., Brooklyn on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday). Can you help? If you are able to volunteer, contact Joshua H. Foss, Project Coordinator, Respite Bed Program.   Click here to contact us.
