Here are two opportunities to assist homeless children and their families during the summer months:
Our guests will be offered the opportunity to go swimming, but need swimsuits. We’re accepting donations of gently-used (and new) swimwear for children of all ages; we’ll take beach towels and swimmies, too! Or, consider donating a gift card to buy swimwear for a hard-to-fit kid or for a parent.
With kids out of school, it can be hard for a single parent to do the things they need to do that will help them move forward in their search for housing. Family Promise is looking for teen and adult “babysitting” volunteers to take charge of the child(ren) in one family while their parent goes to an appointment. Babysitting would be on an as-needed basis, during the daytime hours at the Family Promise Crafton House while staff is on-site.
If you can help with either of these opportunities or need more information, please call Laura Vincenti at 412-921-2916 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
