Sponsor a Weekend Meal
(Please call ahead to schedule)
Please call to sign up for a date to bring in a dinner meal on a Saturday or Sunday evening at the shelter, 3001 Grand Avenue. Dinner must be dropped off by 4:45pm and may be ready-to-eat or can be cooked/ heated up at the shelter. Dinner would serve approximately 25 people, 2/3 of those children. This is an easy and fun way to volunteer at the Shelter, whether you only want to serve once, or you want to serve often.
Provide Children’s Activities
Read books, play games, create art projects, plan a movie night, Bingo night, an ice cream social night, or provide any other projects for the children staying at the shelter! Activities can be held in the late afternoons, evenings, or weekends.
Adopt a Holiday
Bring your family, community group, religious organization to celebrate a holiday with the children and families here at New Directions Shelter. Holidays include but are not limited to: Valentine’s Day, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!
Planting flowers, gardening, landscaping, and yard clean up are great examples of the outside work that needs to be done to maintain the shelter and the homes we provide for our Home Connection families.
Helping maintain the organization of the storage area including food pantry, hygiene items, and especially the clothing closet is a huge need we have. We are looking for monthly volunteers to help us maintain this area.
