There are many ways to get involved with the mission of Family Promise to help homeless and low–income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. One way to join in is to have a few from your Small Group help in preparing meals for the residents. We plan the menu and do the shopping, but need help preparing & delivering meals under the direction of our meal coordinators - Lynn Kinghorn & Anne Kramer. If you have any questions regarding our meal week, or if you are interested in learning how else you can serve with Family Promise, please contact Anne & Lynn at .
Small groups are invited to assemble Personal Care Kits for distribution to local organizations helping those without housing. We currently support Turning Point, Family Promise, Salvation Army, Women’s City Club of Delaware, and Mount Carmel Outreach with kits each month. What is required of your Small Group: Sign up to secure the month you would like to participate. Pick a date and start time (during the 3rd week of the month). Plan to meet to assemble kits at VCDC or an agreed upon location. It should take 75-90 minutes to complete, even with a small number of helpers. Sharon Spolidora, a VCDC member, will attend to guide and instruct your group. She will also share about the needs that are being met and answer any questions. Please take time to pray over the kits, recipients, and Sharon – that through them the practical love of Jesus will be experienced by those who distribute and those who receive them.
