OFFSITE: Family Promise Week October 30 to November 6

Family Promise of Athens is a non-profit organization that provides immediate shelter and guidance to homeless families with children due to the impact of misfortunes they face. Once families are accepted into the program, Family Promise provides food, shelter, daycare, and transportation.
UUFA serves as a support congregation during weeks that the guest families stay overnight at Holy Cross Lutheran Church. We provide meals and serve as van drivers, dinner hosts, overnight hosts, and weekend Day Center hosts.
Current Guests:  Three families, 11 people total.
1.  William David has one 5 year old son, SJ.
2.  Jeanette Stinson has two children. Zyion is 16, and Wisdom is 3 years old.
3.  Desiree and Miracle have four children. Eden and Hannah are 9-year-old twins. Braylen is 7, and Brooklyn is 1 year old.
No van drivers are needed. The families have their own transportation, and the children are transported to and from school on the school bus.
No gift card money is needed. Gift cards have already been purchased for our host week.
Attention Meal Preparers:  Please prepare a quantity of food appropriate for approximately 6 adults unless you are providing individual portions of food such as hamburgers. Please also add portions for the evening host.
Food choices suggested:  
Meats such as chicken, hamburgers, tacos, meatloaf, lasagna, chili, and fish from Captain D’s. (The Stinson family does not eat pork.)
Sides such as baked potatoes, rice, corn, fries, green beans, black-eyed peas, fruit, cornbread, and garlic bread. Apparently, green salads are not popular. A lot of salad is thrown away each week.

The event is finished.
