Work of Mercy: Feed the Homeless
August 5, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am
To obtain the volunteer forms and receive the details of the event location, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Lady of Peace Young Adults Group has committed to going the FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH to cook and serve breakfast to the homeless. Since our first Work of Mercy of Feeding the Hungry in March was such a great success and we were able to share the love of Christ with over 150 homeless persons, we have decided to continue on a monthly basis.
The dates in 2018 are: May 6, June 3, July 1, August 5, September 2, October 7, November 4, December 2.
Generally, we will would like at least 10 volunteers each time we go.
5:00 am – Arrive and cook breakfast (at least 6 people)
6:00am – The serving volunteers arrive (at least 4 more people)
6:30-7:30 am – Breakfast is served
7:30-8:00 am – Clean up
If this is your first time volunteering, we ask that you complete and sign a code of conduct, and volunteer agreement to turn in when you arrive Sunday. Please email the OLOP Young Adults Core Team at email@example.com to obtain these forms!
This only needs to be completed one time so if you have already filled one out, you will not have to fill it out again. On that day volunteers must wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, long pant/skirt and shirts with sleeves (no tank top/sleeveless tops and long hair should be worn back. Furthermore, for those planning on volunteering for more than 8 hours each month, HomeFirst ask that we provide them with records of our TB test results, which has to be less than two years old.
If you can’t come but would still like to help, you can always donate money or food to bring. Ideally, we would like to bring pancake mix, breakfast sausage links, eggs, and milk. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the Our Lady of Peace Parish Office or given to Mother Bon Secours. Please make donations payable to Our Lady of Peace with a memo to the Young Adults Group.
The location is HomeFirst, located at 2011 Little Orchard St., San Jose. We would like to keep the location off the event listing to prevent volunteers from showing up without having filled out the proper forms. If this is not acceptable, please let us know what can be changed.
