Subject: Sept 27 Swap at Hope Community Church
Well, I've been out of town the past few
Sundays, and I was anticipating bulletin announcements yesterday and last week
to call for volunteers for the upcoming Sept 27th Clothing and Kid Stuff Swap at
Hope...however, it was not there either week. Not only that, but my email
crashed about a month ago and I lost all my messages AND contacts - - those of
you I am mailing now have been forwarded me by Christina Hoadley - thanks again,
Christina. So, needless to say, I am hoping that
you all can not only help with the event, but also spread the word for
volunteers. Please note that I WILL NOT PRESUME YOU ARE HELPING...please let me
know that you are helping and when you would like to help.
also that collection weekends and the event sorting and actual event are great
service opportunities for your small groups!!!
Just to remind you:
Collections will take place the weekends of September 13 & 14 and 20 &
21 - I need collectors before and after each of the 4 services; on Sundays,
we'll be collecting at on- and off-site parking, so it really adds up to a need
for 6 sets of volunteers per weekend. I'd like to schedule a couple people for
each shift to avoid any "no-show" issues...so I'll need LOTS of collection
volunteers!) Last time, as some of you know, the event was canceled due to
(a) a family health issue for me and (b) lack of volunteers...so please spread
the word so there is lots of help this time.
Also, I'll need a couple
pick-up trucks and LOTS OF PEOPLE for unloading the storage units and setting up
on Friday, Sept 26. Also, if anyone wants a flyer for their workplace or clubs,
etc., please let me know and I'll be happy to provide you with one. Oh! AND
START CLEANING OUT THOSE CLOSETS OF YOURS!
Finally, we'll need some guys
for security again this time, so please let me know if you know anyone who'd
like to help with this. We'll be setting it up much like last time, with the
"big ticket" kids/baby items behind tape and with a limit of 2 per family. I'm
trying to figure out other ways to make the event better/safer, without limiting
what God wants to do. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Oh, if you want to be removed from this mailing list, PLEASE let me know as
well. :- )
