Volunteers are needed!
Please sign-up to volunteer with Miss Mary's Ice Cream Crankin' right in the Historic Roswell Square on Sunday, August 26. We need volunteers to make icecream, set-up at the event, scoop icecream, and then help to break-down the event and clean up.
It is a very delicious event where attendees get to sample lots of homemade icecream. Proceeds go to the Drake House one of RPC's mission partners. Volunteers get free admission to the event.
If you can not volunteer on the day of the event please sign-up to make icecream!
The Drake House, a RPC Mission Partner, offers 90-day emergency residential housing for single mothers and their children with a goal toward independent housing.
HomeStretch Volunteer Opportunities

HomeStretch is moving 4 new families in the next four weeks, which is a very ambitious schedule. They are so excited to welcome these families but, they need help in getting their apartments ready.

2. Buy School Supplies for HomeStretch Students
3. Create Welcome Home Baskets for New Families Moving Into HomeStretch

4. HomeStretch Planning for Crafts for Elementary Aged Children
We are looking for a few folks to help us prepare craft projects for our elementary aged children during a Youth LifeSkills class.
We would reimburse expenses for all supplies. The volunteer(s) would need to plan, shop for supplies, and drop at the HomeStretch office(twice/month). This could be a creative, fun role and very flexible in terms of time--and would be a huge help to HomeStretch. Interested in hearing more? Contact Donna Brodsky
