We love to bring friends with us to our events so please join us and receive service hours if needed.
Fire Safety Session - (Once Every 3 months) Location: Eastside Family Shelter
We have partnered up with the local fire department to educate all residents about fire safety and develop an evacuation plan. We need volunteers to assist with directing residents and helping with fire safety activities for the kids.
Children's Story Hour (twice a month) Location: Eastside Family Shelter or Virtual
We are looking for guest storytellers every other Tuesday from 10:30-11 this summer. The stories can be done in person or via zoom. All ages are welcome.
Homework Helpers (Tuesdays and Thursday 4:30 - 5) Location: Eastside Family Shelter - Virtual
Homework Helpers facilitates the use of peer tutoring/mentoring as a strategy for improving academic and social-emotional outcomes for all students. The goal is to give virtual learners living in shelters the opportunity to connect with new friends while getting some additional assistance with their studies.
Field Day - JUNE 2021
The kids are very sad that this fun school activity will not be happening for them this year so we will be hosting this event for them. Please inquire for details and dates.
Monthly Birthday Parties (for children)- Eastside Family Shelter & Fontana Village Aftercare
Once a month we gather all the kids together to celebrate birthdays that fall within that month. We will supply a gift of their choice (birthday kids), snacks, cake, water, and an activity for all the kids. These celebrations will happen for kids living in the shelter and kids living in Fontana Village. Party dates typically fall on a Friday afternoon from 4-6 pm.
Each child in the club will receive a plastic shoebox with their own legos to use during our meetings. We will label each box with their name and store them off site and bring to every session. We will practice social distancing and have this event outdoors (weather permitting). This club will meet twice a month on a weekend.
Sports Days (4 - 6 events per year)
We need local youth sports teams to assist with teaching sports basics to kids living in the Eastside Family Shelter and Fontana Village. All sports are welcome. Dates will be coordinated with teams.
Stock the Shelves - Eastside Family Shelter Library
We need assistance stocking the shelves at the shelter library. Previously loved books are always needed.
Summer Camps - Camp Counselors are needed. Stay tuned for details and dates!
