Saturday of Service is a one-day event, held quarterly, to compassionately serve others in Jesus’ name. Saturday of Service complements our longer mission trip experiences by providing local mission and service opportunities. There is no commitment beyond that one day and no prior experience is needed. There is a job for everyone so round up your family and your friends for a wonderful day of work, fellowship, and fun.
The next Saturday or Service event will be Saturday, February 3, 2018.
We will be serving once again at The Food Bank of WNY assisting them with their mission to “Fight hunger one day at a time”. We will be working in their warehouse on Holt Street in Buffalo to assist with the sorting and packaging of food items for distribution.
The Food Bank has some specific space limitations and safety requirements in their warehouse.
Age requirement: volunteers must be at least 16 years of age (14 years old with a parent).
Clothing: volunteers must wear closed toe shoes, sneakers or work-boots and long pants or jeans. T-shirts or short sleeves are fine, layers are recommended for comfort. All participants will need to complete a volunteer release form for the Food Bank of WNY the morning of the event.
The number of volunteers they can accept is limited to 15 due to OSHA rules and space/work environment limitations in their warehouse. So our group for this event will be limited to the first 15 participants who register.
We will gather at First Trinity at 8 a.m. for a short briefing and devotion. We will then head to the Food Bank for a 9:00 start. We will work at the Food Bank from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and head home from there.
Once you register you will be contacted via e-mail to confirm your registration and any further information for the day.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Patrick Canfield at 695-9845.
