HAVEN TOTES, INC. Haven Totes for Kids is a Christian community outreach ministry. Through its partnership with Haven Totes, Inc., Christian congregations assist low-income school children and their families by providing weekend food totes and family food boxes during holidays and the summer. Haven Totes just added a certified food pantry for their families so they can have food boxes once a month. Christ is our example when seeking to meet the needs of others. Volunteer Opportunities: We are always in need of non-perishable food such as fruit cups, pudding cups, canned vegetables, juice boxes, and healthy bars. We need volunteers
DAILY BREAD We are currently providing 150 bagged lunches per week (more have been requested) between two La Frontera clinics so that they can provide lunches to their clients who struggle with mental illness. Our volunteers typically sign up for one term at a time which lasts four months. Each person who signs up contributes once per month and simply drops their items off at church in either the Chapel or The Gathering Place on Sunday morning. Each week we need: Bags of chips or cracker packs (sold in boxes of 50 at Sam’s Club or Costco), SOFT granola bars, pudding
MORE THAN A BED More Than a Bed (MTaB) is a foster, adoptive, and kinship resource center. We support the families and the children in their homes by providing for practical needs: twin beds, cribs, toddler beds, clothes, toys, shoes, diapers, linens etc. We believe that every child deserves to feel valued, to be safe, and have the opportunity to thrive. MTaB was founded September 2014 by serving five families with toys and clothes. In 2018, we served 720 families (2100 children) and continue to grow at a rate of 30 new families per month. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated.
