Make a Difference Through the CRC!
Here are some fun and meaningful youth service opportunities through the St. Andrew's Community Resource Center! Get involved and make a difference!

Starting to think about your summer plans? Volunteer at the Community Resource Center! We are looking for youth and adult volunteers to assist with our young guests while their parents are looking for housing and jobs during the summer months. Volunteer times include Monday through Thursday for two shifts (9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 - 2:30 p.m.) each day from June 8 through September 3, 2015.

Kids’ Thursday Night Craft Volunteer. Plan and facilitate crafts for kids from 5:45-7:15 p.m. at St. Andrew’s free Thursday Night Community Meals. This is a great volunteer opportunity for families, church youth groups, and Scout groups who would like to serve. Spring and summer dates are available.

Donation Needs
$25 restaurant and Target/Walmart gift card donations are needed. A gift card is given out each week as a raffle prize at the St. Andrew’s Thursday Night Community Meal. If you would like to provide a gift card, you are welcome to drop it off at the Community Resource Center in the St. Andrew’s Great Hall Building.

Making a Difference
    "Although we have sheltered 369 families since we opened in March 2011, we still turn away 77 percent of those who call needing shelter. Together, we can do more. I invite you to be part of the solution."
                        Pastor Sarah Breckenridge
