We had several Warm Heart Church Members help out at the “Help Build Hope” event.

Our volunteers were: Rob Tulloch, Brad Carlson, Lisa Miller, Jim Alexander, Bea Okamoto and Addison Biason.

Thank you for participating in the Help Build Hope project on July 15 at the Cathedral of the Rockies!  It was a great day that made a difference in your community and the lives of the two families who will receive the walls of the houses you worked on.

Check out the pictures of your event at this Facebook page:

HBH Cathedral of the Rockies

Your “hands on” contribution to this project is only the beginning of the blessing that will be derived from your work.  Your walls will enable families (like the two families below) to enjoy the comforts of home and hold the memories of shared life for generations to come.  More importantly, what you’ve done has built lifelong partnerships, fueled the rejuvenation of communities and proven again that Christ makes all the difference when we love, serve and give in His name.

Thanks to Bea Okamoto for providing the four pictures below.

Is God calling you to help at Meridian Food Bank?

The Meridian Food Bank needs volunteers for a variety of ongoing positions.

Volunteers usually work assigned shifts – the same hours and/or days each week. If you are available on Thursdays, for example, you might sign up to work from noon to 2 every Thursday.  Your assigned position will depend on food bank needs and on your skills and interests.

The food bank is open from noon to 6 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and from noon to 4 p.m. Thursdays.  Volunteers are also needed at other times to sort food, prepare displays, and pick up donations at local stores.

In addition, a volunteer is needed to take minutes at board meetings at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month.  This volunteer should have good secretarial skills/experience as well as a laptop computer that he/she can use to take minutes.

If you are interested in helping at the food bank, you can call 888-5102, take a tour at 133 West Broadway in Meridian, or sign up online (http://meridianfoodbank.org/volunteer/).
