DIRECTORS UPDATE from their weekly newsletter:
Thank you to Ocean Community Church and all their volunteers for hosting our guests this week.
Thank you to Wright Memorial Church for supplying the day center with all of the requested needs as well as to all the individual volunteers that stopped by the Day Center to drop off needed items. All the items will be used as we go through them quickly.
If anyone knows of any rentals between Manahawkin to Little Egg Harbor area with 3-4 BR that Gabe and Pam may be interested in, please let me know. Additionally, if anyone knows of any rentals in the Toms River/Beachwood area that Melissa can rent please let me know. Both families are on a time limit in order to get the support for the program.Please keep them in your prayers that they soon will find a 'place to call home'.
Mandy and Jenna are still looking for employment; We are still in need of assisting Gabe with cost of of the toolbox or if someone knows someone that has a good used one as it will be very helpful for his new job.
Please limit the snacks to healthy snacks for the children and kid friendly meals if possible. Although it may seem to be a treat, it is very difficult if there are lots of sweets in eye's view for the children to see when they are having their meal.
We need to get our weeks filled in for May. If anyone can see if their congregation is willing to take a week or an additional week that would be great.
Within the next few weeks as it get warmer, we will be in need of someone to cut the grass and keep the weeds from growing at the Day Center at least 1 x per month. Please let me know if you are able to assist.
We are in need of meals and overnights during the week at the Training Lodge at the Boy Scout camp the week of 4/29. We also have that Friday and Sat opened as the scout camp cannot accommodate.
