About Helping Hands Ministry
Helping Hands Ministry is a volunteer based ministry that helps provide services and help to others in times of need and to alleviate loneliness and offer support to seniors, single parents and widow(er)s at Capo Beach Church. The Ministry will serve by providing services, friendship and opportunities for participating in Church and community activities.
The envisioned result is to those in need or going through life changing circumstances and also empower seniors, single parents and widow(er)s to remain independent as much as possible while receiving ongoing support and a referral system that offers services such as providing temporary meal support, groceries, running errands, offering friendly visits, organized social church activities and senior community center opportunities.
Types of assistance provided
When people in our church go through surgeries, illnesses, new births or family losses, a nice home-cooked meal can be one of the best ways to show the support and encouragement of our church family.
During this time of crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and job loss, Helping Hands has the ability to help with free groceries for our church family members who are truly in need of support via donation by food banks and other contributors.
We provide assistance with household chores you need help with!
Volunteer with Helping Hands Ministry
The care and services provided to seniors, widow(er)s, and single moms or for meal requests can only be accomplished through the dedicated volunteers who make up this ministry. Whether you have an hour a week to help someone run an errand, can cook a meal once every few months, provide groceries, or help with errands, your time and presence is truly appreciated and needed.
Helping Hands Ministry is looking for 4 different types of volunteers:
- Grocery Store Runner – Picks up groceries from the store for people physically unable to do so
- Home-Cooked Meals – Prepares and delivers home-cooked meals for people physically get groceries and cook (i.e. people coming out of surgery, people who have lost a loved one, etc.)
- Financial Support – Crunched for time but still want to help? We could use financial donations to help buy groceries for people in need!
- Chores – Involves going to home and completing a physical task(s) (i.e. walking the dogs, taking out the trash, etc). Please note that this area requires you to be fingerprinted before starting as a volunteer so that we can ensure the safety of those we care for.
