Growing Home Canopy Shelter Week

Discovery will be hosting, at the Barn, up to four Growing Home families who are homeless. The families and their children are enrolled in the emergency interfaith family Canopy Shelter program of the Growing Home agency in Westminster. Discovery households, Life Groups, individuals, and other groups are invited to serve by donating time or resources. You can help by: assisting with room set-up or tear-down, providing a dinner for 16 - 20 persons, serving as evening or overnight hosts by enjoying hanging out with the guest families or providing a fun evening activity. Food and supply donations will be needed & there will be linens to wash at the end of the week. The guest families will be at the church from 5:30 pm each evening until the next morning. Each Growing Home family will have their own room every night. Our overnight hosts will have their own room as well.
All volunteers will receive plenty of assistance and an orientation from our coordinators Tom & Rhonda McNally and Susan Wiitala. Background checks are required for some of the serving opportunities if you have not already completed this at Discovery.
