Additional Help Needed 

Hello FPA volunteers,
We hope your summer is off to a great start. Things are going great at Family Promise, so great that we need additional help for the next two weeks. For next week (June 26 – July 3) and the following week (July 3 – July 10), we need volunteers from our entire volunteer pool to cover the available slots. These next two weeks offer a unique opportunity to serve Family Promise and our current families in a much-needed way. Please spread the word in your groups and consider going to the SignUpGenius and filling these slots. I will be the contact point/Coordinator for these two weeks. Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you all for your hearts and your continued willingness to help those experiencing homelessness.

Family Promise Volunteer Appreciation Event

Hello Volunteer Coordinators!
We are so excited to announce that our next Volunteer Coordinator Bi-Monthly meeting will actually be replaced with an in-person volunteer appreciation BBQ on Thursday, July 21st at 5:30. This is an open invitation for all of you and the members of your congregations that volunteer with us to come and celebrate all of the hard work that we have put into FPA over the past year. The event will include a meal together and a short presentation on FPA’s work and future.
The event will be held in the Fellowship Hall at First Baptist Church (355 Pulaski Street). Please invite clergy, congregants who have been volunteers with FPA in the past, and also members who might be interested in volunteering in the future. We are hoping that this event will also serve the purpose of recruiting new volunteers and bringing new life and invigoration to our work. 
See the flyer attached that can be sent out or posted to your congregation’s social media, website, or bulletin. We have an RSVP link so we can estimate how many people will be in attendance here: tinyurl.com/FPbbq
