Help with ALIVE! Furniture Duty Sep 26


Every Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. ALIVE!'s two furniture trucks roll out of the First Christian Church parking lot and begin collecting furniture donations and making drop-offs to recipient families.  The trucks are driven by a small group of highly trained, highly skilled, dedicated ALIVE! volunteers.  But the drivers need help -- they need "chasers" -- cars filled with other dedicated volunteers who can assist in loading and unloading the trucks.  Where do they get these volunteers?  From ALIVE!'s member congregations, including Immanuel.

September 26 is Immanuel's next scheduled Saturday furniture duty.  We are looking for 6-8 volunteers to assist with this worthy effort, folks willing to contribute a Saturday morning to help those in need (and as a bonus, I will be one of the drivers that morning).  We gather at 8:00 a.m., receive our marching orders, and are finished by lunchtime.  I can tell you it is a rewarding experience and well worth your time.  Students can receive community service hours for their participation.  If you can help, please contact me, Jim Wise, at jrwise52@hotmail.com or 703-642-8225.
