CHRISTMAS AT THE MERCY HOME
The weather is turning colder outside, and Thanksgiving is here. That means we need to start preparing to staff the Mercy Home for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Our Jewish Community members volunteer their time to staff the Mercy Home, the only domestic violence shelter for women in Great Falls. This gives the Mercy Home staff a chance to spend the Christmas holiday with their families.
Here are the shifts that I would like to fill. If we have trouble filling the 3 hour shifts, I may move to 4 hour shifts and utilize fewer volunteers, but with enough volunteers, we should only need to help for 3 hours each:
- Monday, 12/24: 2-5 PM
- Monday 12/24: 5-8 PM
- Monday 12/24: 8-11 PM
- Tuesday 12/25: 8-11 AM
- Tuesday 12/25: 11 AM – 2 PM
- Tuesday 12/25: 2-5 PM
Remember that a male can only volunteer with a female (Mercy Home Rules). If you have never done this before or need a refresher, me or a Mercy Home staff member are happy to do that prior to your shift. Just let me know and I can arrange that.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text me at 868-5712 and let me know what shift you would like or if you have any questions.
