Resource Parent Association Picnic Needs Your Help

It’s volunteer time! As you’ve heard by now, MBC’s field is going to be used for the foster care picnic on Sat, Aug 11th.  We’re looking for volunteers to help set up, run some games, and pack up.  All in all, it should be pretty quick.  There isn’t too much to get ready.

For volunteers:

Arrival at 9:30

9:30 – 10:00 Set up games

10:00 – 11:30 Foster Family Picnic (Some volunteers needed to help run games)

11:30 Clean up games

Foster families are putting the simplicities of life on hold to serve vulnerable children among us.  Please consider helping us to support the families that serve them.

Children and Youth Foster Care Picnic

Saturday, June 21st, Lancaster County Children and Youth will be hosting their annual foster family picnic.  This is a time for foster families to relax and fellowship with other co-workers in the foster care system.  Children and Youth has asked MBC’s HOPEful Orphan Ministries to provide carnival games for the kids during the time directly after lunch.

We have the supplies, but lack the manpower.  So, if you think you might be able to help us serve local foster families, please sign up using the form below.  Children and Youth have asked us to pass on that this is a family event, and as such, you can bring your kids!  School-aged children are also welcome to help run the games.
