Operationally we voted to have 13 written commitment letters from 13 congregations to be hosts for these families before we start the program. While we have reached our goal of 13, we need a few more congregations to allow more flexibility for our host schedule.
A staff member or volunteer needs to be present when our guests are at the Day Center so we are always looking for volunteers. Contact Jackie Sprague at email@example.com or 770-262-7816 if you are interested in volunteering.
We could always use donations of toiletries for our guests to use at the Day Center. Below is a list of commonly used items:
- Toilet Paper
- Laundry Detergent
- Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap
- Sanitary Napkins
- Cleaning supplies
- Family Friendly DVD’s
- New Bed Pillows and Mattress Pads
- Large Fabric Laundry Bags
Our annual budget is just over $100,000. Because this corporation is a Tax Exempt corporation, we are able to provide tax receipts for any individual or company that will donate to us. We rely on donations to provide resources for the families that are in our program.
Gas Cards & Gift Cards
One of the biggest expenses for our guests is gas. Donated gas cards help our guests get to appointments and job interviews and reduce the gas expense from our operating budget.
Our families can not afford to purchase birthday and Christmas gifts for their children. Kids don’t understand why everyone else gets presents and they don’t. Donated gift cards allow the parents to purchase items that their children will enjoy and give the children a gift that is from mom or dad.
