Voices for Kids
Volunteers are needed to advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children in court, the child welfare system and the community. Voices for Kids of Southwest Florida, a United Way agency, supports the 20th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Volunteers serve 6-10 hours monthly, and must be at least 21 years of age. Contact Donna Kordek for information (776-4734; email@example.com).
Golden Gate Elementary School
We have also partnered with Golden Gate Elementary School and the national organization, Blessings in a Backpack, to help provide food for those who may be going without. The heart of this service opportunity is to ensure that children who are food insecure will be given food to eat during the weekend. If you are interested, contact Derek Newbery at 261-7486 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Habitat for Humanity
Short-term service opportunities are offered several times per year in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers from Center Point have helped with several building projects, including the most recent Habitat for Humanity community at Regal Acres (East Naples). Upcoming service opportunities will be listed in the bulletin. Please visit Habitat for Humanityonline for additional volunteer opportunities.
First Sunday Drive
A collection box for donations of specific items is available at the church on the first Sunday of each month to help us meet the needs of our community. Drives to collect canned goods, school supplies, clothing, diapers, etc., have supported various local organizations including Helps Outreach, Golden Gate Elementary School, Sunlight Home, and St. Matthew's House. Please check the bulletin for information on our current drive.
