Upcoming Service Event Opportunities
IHN Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) —a great service opportunity for your small group or family. A special thanks to all who served with us in October. Thanks to the many volunteers and our wonderful staff here at HPCUMC; we were able to welcome and serve 4 families (4 single mothers and 11 children) for the week.
Our 4th (last one of the year) Host Week is right around the corner–December 4-11th. We would love to have you join us in serving the families that come to stay with us from IHN for the week. Volunteers are needed to help set up rooms, prepare meals, serve and eat with the families, or just sign-up to come and eat dinner with us and play with the kids. We need about 8-10 volunteers each night including at least one to sleep overnight at the Church (in private room).
IHN is a family homeless shelter located in Walnut Hills. Host Congregations, like HPCUMC, rotate on a weekly basis, providing meals and shelter for the families. Our guests stay with us at our Hyde Park campus during the week; arriving by bus at 5 p.m. each night. We serve them dinner, visit with the adults, play with the children and provide warm, safe beds for the night. After a breakfast on the go, the families leave by bus around 6:45 a.m. to head back to the IHN Day Center where the parents work on their case plan, children are shuttled to school, etc.
If interested in helping, please contact Sarah Putman (871-1345; sPutman@hcpumc.org) or Laura Warren (240-2155; firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, more information is available on the Church website, including a list of the many pantry items needed for the week. All items can be dropped off at the Church and placed in bins outside the main office.
