Service Opportunities during Lent for Adults and Families
Looking for ways you might bless someone else during Lent? As you might guess, very few outreach sources are engaging volunteers directly right now because of Covid-19 safety measures. But there are still some ways to help:
Consider joining with another family to create and deliver a meal for 25-30 residents of Sacred Heart Shelter - https://ccsww.org/get-help/shelter-homeless-services/sacred-heart-shelter/ This page describes the meal program and contains a link to the sign-up page. Also has agency phone number for direct contact.
Queen Anne Helpline is accepting shopping bags with items from their list of recommendations, available on their Facebook page, primarily food and hygiene items. Check their website at www.queenannehelpline.org
Queen Anne Food Bank at Sacred Heart church can always use homemade sandwiches and homemade soups, pretty much every day of the week. Their website is down right now, www.qafb.org; or phone them at (206)216-4102. Recently they were seeking volunteers to help set up and/or take down outdoor lunch-service tables and chairs - that's probably still a need.
Our parish Martha's Workers group still makes sandwiches each Monday morning for delivery to various shelters. While they can't take additional volunteers, they're delighted to accept home-baked cookies. You can bring them to Mass Sat. evening or Sun. morning, or deliver to the church main doors by 8:30am Mondays.
Other Possibilities We Recommend For Families
- Be a light! If you're attending Mass, introduce yourself to another person or family you don't know. Each week, even after Lent is ended.
- When you go for a walk, bring a bag and gloves so you can pick up trash to help keep your neighborhood or local park clean.
- Check on neighbors who may be seniors or disabled - do they need help with yard work or house work?
- Each day for a week, gather your family and ask God to help anyone who needs a job so they can provide a home and food for their family. Include a prayer of gratitude for what you have received.
- Set an intention: Set aside $10-$20 in ones and/or fives, and plan on giving them away to people on the street who are asking for help. Form the notion of "my brother" or "my sister" as you approach. Say something to them, like "We hope this helps a little." (Consider giving up a dessert or treat in order to gather your donation money.)
And for a few hundred additional ideas, visit www.volunteermatch.org and enter either Seattle or your ZIP code.
We hope you will find just the right blessing for yourself and others in your world!
