Read the 2017 Social Justice Committee report on UUFE Outreach and support to TIS – Here.
Talbot Interfaith Shelter is embarking on an exciting new endeavor. Since April 2015, TIS has been open 365 days of the year. TIS is looking to get 30 teams to cover one day of the month. UUFE has agreed to be coordinate a team for the shelter and the 9th day of each month will be our day.Since April, UUFE has been filling the 6 volunteer positions once a month. If you would like to volunteer, or if you know of anyone that might be interested in volunteering, Todd Cranwell will be coordinating the UUFE volunteer effort and will be available for questions. Please feel free to call, email or speak with him Sunday mornings.
The 6 shifts will consist of:
- 2 morning volunteers, 6:45am-10am
- 1-2 dinner volunteers, 5:30pm-6:30pm. Provide dinner for 10 people including the volunteers.
- 2 evening volunteers, 7-11pm.
The morning/evening shifts consist of sitting in the beautiful house possibly chatting/playing board games/watching a movie or reading a book, very low key and warm environment. Dinner is a little more work but still very low key with the guests at TIS helping with anything that is needed.
For more information and to volunteer, please contact Todd Cranwell.
