Social Action Network - Fundraising, Volunteer and Donation Opportunities

Emergency Family Shelter Volunteers Needed March 26th - April 9th:  It's that time again! One of our community action programs is an Interfaith collaboration with the ERUCC and UUCF to help staff Frederick's Emergency Family Shelter for two weeks tour times a year. That's a total of 8 weeks. It's a big commitment but our homeless families in Frederick depend on this important program. Please consider signing up for an evening (6pm-10pm) at the shelter. The shelter always has a staff person there so volunteers are not on on their own.
 
If you have any interest in helping out, please send an email to debra@kattler-gold.net and we'll get you signed up!
 
Another way to help the Emergency Family Shelter effort is to provide an evening meal for the guestsand volunteers. Here is the Sign Up Genius link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0845abad2ba6fe3-meals1
 
Thank you for your ongoing support!!
