We owe the success of the FirstWorks FreeStore to those who willingly give of their free time. There are several ways that you can give:
Thursday and Friday mornings beginning at 9 am. Tables and boxes for the food need to be set up. The foyer and sanctuary need to be prepared for our guests
Thursday and Friday 9 am-noon. Food needs to be picked up from our distributors, brought to the church, unloaded and set out for our customers
Friday 9 am-noon. Canned foods need to be set out. Frozen foods and bakery items need to be bagged.
Fridays 11:15 am – 2 pm – People are greeted, announcements made, forms are passed out to newcomers, clients are given numbers and entry to the building and FreeStore in an orderly fashion.
Friday 11:30 am – 3 pm. Clients are registered and given the appropriate forms to fill out as they enter the FreeStore
Friday 3-4 pm. Putting tables and chairs away,mopping, vacuuming, wiping down the kitchen.
Friday 11:30 am – 3 pm. Food is passed out to our clients. People are also needed to help the customers with getting their food to their vehicles and bringing carts back.
Friday 11:30 am – 2 pm. Being available to pray with clients who request it. (You must be a qualified prayer minister – talk to Pastor Bret or Pastor Joe)
Keeping an eye on the whole thing!
Can be done any time. Researching grants, writing grants, going to area businesses, planning a fundraising event
