Volunteers needed for Micah 6 Street Youth Ministry which serves youth, ages 30 and down, who are dependent on the streets in the University area. We are in need of volunteers for the Sunday Drop-In and the Cold Weather Shelter. Both take place at University Baptist, 2107 San Antonio.
- The Drop-In is currently looking for hosts to help with set up and close and to generally help the center run smoothly. The center is open from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm every Sunday. Volunteers are needed from 1:30 – 6:30. You could choose to work a half shift or to work the entire time. You may choose to work once a month or more often.
- The Cold Weather Shelter is open whenever the temperature gets below 32. We need help with set up and close; hosting; overnight. We need one man and one woman for over-night and pay $100 each per night for that job.
- Micah 6 provides a hot meal on Sunday evenings at the Youth Drop-In Center at University Baptist Church. They are looking for folks at UUMC to help prepare a meal quarterly. If you and/or your Sunday School class is interested in providing a meal please contact Sue at SWMPPC@aol.com. Food needs to be delivered at 4pm and 3 people are needed to stay to serve the meal which is usually over by 5:30 or 6pm. People dropping off food only might consider using a disposable container so they don’t have to worry about returning pans, etc. What a great way for a Sunday School to make a profound impact with the youth who roam our streets. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
Please contact Mac McKaskle at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping with either the Drop-In or the Shelter.
You are also welcome to contact Jane Leifeste, UUMC member at 512-968-4003; email@example.com with general questions about the program.
