301 Faith Partners Announcements
Volunteers Needed for Weekly Food Delivery
Through our ISAAC involvement and our Social & Eco Justice Team work, 301 Faith Partners have been asked to take over weekly food delivery for immigrant families in our community through the summer months ahead.

This program is set up and provided through Bohemian Foundation, Fort Collins restaurants, Feurza Latina and ISAAC. Though jobs are becoming more available, the need is expected to continue through the summer months.
Volunteers are needed for about 2 hours each Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 beginning June 1

A delivery truck will bring individually packed meals to our church parking lot. A coordinator has the list of families. Volunteers typically drive to the same families each week once a route is established.

Currently we have 4 volunteers from 301 Faith Partners - at least 8 more are needed! It is not necessary to know any Spanish. Also - save your large paper bags and leave at the church in Fellowship Hall.

Option: volunteers can accompany or shadow Plymouth volunteers on May 28. If you can help or have questions about this program, contact Linn Zink, 301 Faith Partners,
...and ISAAC also presents - This Sunday, May 23rd at 2pm

We are delighted to bring you a program on the migration of youth and families from Central America. We will be joined by leaders of AMMPARO -- a holistic, whole church commitment by the ELCA, to accompany migrant children today and in the future. You do *not* need to register for this event in advance.

Some have described this event as "Fort Collins' best holiday". Others love the celebration of people who ride bicycles.

301 Faith Partners will host a station. Helpers are needed for our station in back of TLC to setup and host. Stay as long as you like but coordination is needed. Ride your bike there as well. Good times! Contact David Cloyd at 970-227-0792
