Showers of Blessings needs YOU!

Showers of Blessings recently celebrated its FIRST ANNIVERSARY!!! One beautiful year of offering Showers, haircuts, breakfasts, donated clothing, fellowship and sometimes music with our neighbors who live in Balboa Park. As we look forward to the coming years we are immensely proud of our work so far and we hope not only to keep it going, but also expand it.

  We are always in need of help. If you think you would enjoy being part of this amazing ministry and want to join one of our work crews or just sit and visit with our guests, we invite you to come by the second Saturday of every month (except this June when it will be the 3rd Saturday) and lend a hand. A volunteer coordinator will be on site starting at 7 a.m. to show you the various ways you can help. Here is a list of the work areas:

Staffing the Intake Table: signing in each guest and making sure they have a name tag, have a waiver on file, and are aware of the rules.

Showers: handing out towels, and sample size toiletries, cleaning the showers after each guest, keeping track of the list and calling the next in line.

Hair Cuts: If you are an experienced barber/haircutter we invite you to set up shop with our regular barbers near the showers and provide the crowning glory of a fresh haircut or shave to men and women whose only chance for it resides with us.

Clothing Donations: We have a fully stocked storeroom of carefully selected donated clothing. You can help set up tables and bring out clothes, man the table and/or volunteer to sort and store during the week.

Food and Kitchen Service: We are fortunate to have the United Methodist Church Volunteers providing delicious breakfasts and bag lunches for our guests in the Guild Room. We need people to help set up and bus dirty dishes up to the kitchen, learn how to use the professional dishwasher, process the dishes and then return them to the Guild Room.

We hope to see you this Saturday May 14, or June 18, to join this rewarding ministry!
