It’s Time to Start Thinking… about the bazaar. November 17th is the date. When you are doing your canning, maybe you could make some extra. Sewing projects?? Craft ideas. With the blessings from this event we are able to help so many.
Volunteer Opportunities This Fall With ‘Church Out Serving’
Below are three volunteer opportunities in Simcoe which St. Peter’s is involved with through the coordinating efforts of C.O.S. (Church Out Serving). Please contact them as soon as possible if you are interested in helping with any of the volunteer opportunities listed below or have questions about them. You may reach C.O.S. at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning Eric Haverkamp (226-567-5426) or Virginia Lucas (519-410-5928).
A NEW TEMPORARY FOOD UNDERTAKING… Church Out Serving will prepare and serve food to a group here in our community. It is an undertaking that we would like to start in a few weeks, and that will continue at Riversyde 83 once it opens in the summer of 2019. Until then, the food will be prepared at St. Peter’s. If you enjoy making food, have one morning a week to offer, and would enjoy helping us fill a void in our community, we could use your help. Looking for 7-10 people to make this work.
DONATION STATION… This is our gently-used household basics service that we offer to our neighbours who are in need and are financially unable to afford to purchase these items themselves. We are looking to expand the coordination team of this project. Being compassionate, a team player, self-motivated and flexible is key. Skills needed include management, organization, and administration.
LAUNDRY MATTERS… This is a new community laundromat that we recently opened in downtown Simcoe. This response to the crisis of having no laundry facilities in Simcoe has been warmly received and greatly appreciated. We are looking to form a team around our new coordinator. Being compassionate, having time and being committed to helping out (ie maintenance, cleaning) with the laundromat project is required. Having appliance repair skills is a bonus.
