Service Project THIS WEEK!

[Cross-posted from Multifaith Alliance for the Hamline readers among you. Please take a look and RSVP!]

This year, Multifaith Alliance has set ourselves a goal to work on service for our local homeless, food-insecure, and at-risk families. In keeping with that goal, we are currently undertaking our first-ever service project! On Thursday, October 8 at 6:00 pm, we will be meeting in the Bush Student Center Chapel and traveling to Emma Norton’s Residence, a United Methodist-affiliated homeless shelter for women and children in the Twin Cities.

Here is their website: http://www.emmanorton.org/

We’ve been in contact with Lucille, their Volunteer Coordinator, and they are very excited to have us. We’re hoping to coordinate anywhere from ten to twenty Hamline students.

  • Participants will have no financial contribution necessary.
  • Participants will have no other responsibilities besides helping out Thursday evening. Multifaith is arranging everything!
  • Our tasks at Emma Norton’s may include painting, cleaning, sorting donated goods, arranging cards and Thanksgiving/Christmas gifts to residents, and helping out with other chores. It’s also possible that we might try to arrange an activity or discussion with the residents.

Service project participants should get ready for a fun, thought-provoking, and very special act of service. Also, look out for a provocative preparatory session as well as a reflective follow-up session! This is going to be one of the most important projects Multifaith tackles this year, so don’t miss it!

RSVP to April Palo at apalo01@hamlineuniversity.edu or Megan Dimond at x2315. Thanks!
