Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

2018 Letter to Volunteers:

It is that time of year. Yes – time to sign-up to volunteer for the 2018 Christian Outreach Ecumenical Thanksgiving Dinner!

We are entering our 33rd year.  Without your willingness to serve others, we could not be as successful as we are in serving a meal to those that are in need or alone in our area on Thanksgiving.

This year is a year of change.  No, we are not moving the location of the meal.  No, we do not have a change in leadership.  Yes, we are changing the way we do volunteer sign-up!  This change will streamline the process and make it much easier to keep track of our wonderful volunteers.

We are using an online site called  Many non-profits and schools use this site.  We have created volunteer descriptions for each volunteer opportunity, as well as the number of volunteers needed and the times they are needed. 

The process to register for this site and sign-up for the volunteer spots you would like is an easy process.  You can go on the site as many times as you want to manage your spot or spots you sign-up for. 

As with any volunteer opportunity, times needed may vary on the day of the event.  You may finish early with your job or you may need to stay a little longer to finish the task at hand.  Please be mindful of this as we keep our focus on our mission: to serve a meal to those in need or alone on Thanksgiving.

Peace and Blessings,

Christian Outreach Ecumenical Thanksgiving Ministry, Inc.
