* While we celebrate the knitters in our community for their talent, we are asking that you please not submit handmade gloves or mittens as they are not water-resistant, a particularly important feature for our homeless guests who do not have the ability to dry their gloves easily.
All items must be delivered to a drop-off site by December 1
We are still coordinating drop-off locations throughout the region. The locations, days and hours for drop-off will be posted by mid-November on our
NC Region Facebook Page
and in the upcoming
NC Region Quarterly
. If your parish would like to volunteer to be a drop-off site, please email The Rev. Bonnie Matthews at
as soon as possible.
OPPORTUNITIES TO VOLUNTEER AT THE PARTY:
seeking volunteers to serve at the Boot Party from 8:30 am through 1 pm
, either for the whole time or in shifts. Perhaps you can volunteer some time to
clean a guest’s feet and
provide a gentle touch foot massage while
listening to the stories the guests need to tell. If gentle touch message is not one of your gifts, we also need and welcome
volunteers to act as
serve as boot runners. Free parking
will be available in the MAT garage on the day of the Boot Party.
Finally, we would like to express deep gratitude to those who participated last year. With your help we met the needs of over 500 people in the Greater Hartford Area.
