Perishables for our Resource Center
Weekend Food Packs
Weekend Food Packs are provided to individuals and families who are homeless, low income, unstably housed, and at-risk of homelessness in Fairfax County. They are used as supplements to other programs helping families when they run out of food, at food distributions in local neighborhoods and group homes, as well as resourcing the team of staff and volunteers who check on our neighbors.
Make 25 Weekend Power Bags and drop off at the church during a Sunday service. If you prefer to drop off during the week, contact Brooke Luther at email@example.com to make arrangements.
Each bag needs 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch items, 2 snack items, 2 dinner items, and 2 drink items…all in one gallon sized zip lock bag. It fits, don’t worry…figuring it out is the fun part!Join this Project
Deliver Food to Afghan Families
To help, we would need you to come to the church on the first Saturday of the month at 10:00am to pick up the boxes. We will give you a list of 2-5 addresses to delivery to in the Fairfax area (number depends on requests and volunteers). We need two people per delivery. So this is a great project to do with a buddy! You make the deliveries and are done.
Because we are partnering with Lutheran Social Services for this project, a background check and brief video training is required. We will communicate all those details to you when you sign up.Join this Project
Third Thursday Food Distribution
We need people who want to meet and help our friends in the Comunidad Trabajadora of Annandale and one of the best ways to get started is by joining us at the Thursday Food distribution site. On Third Thursday, you will help set up tables, offload the truck, and do whatever the community organizers need from us with the food distribution. Some opportunities may include helping in the children’s corner or handing out coffee.Join this Project
Third Serve Lunch
We need 2 volunteers to make 25 lunch-to-go-bags. Suggested meal bags include a sandwich, to-go fruit, chips/cookie, and water.
Lunch-to-go-Bags need to be delivered to the Lamb Center parking lot by 10:15am on the day in which you sign up to serve. New Hope pastors will pick up the bags there and deliver them to their homeless congregants.Join this Project
Burke Lake Picnic Party
And while teen moms are experiencing camp with their leaders, childcare volunteers, like YOU, get the honor of caring for and praying over their sweet children during nursery times. How awesome is that? A whole weekend of loving babies and helping teen moms have the best weekend of their lives!
There is training provided and a background check will be done by Young Life for each volunteer.Join this Project
Lamb Center Breakfast
We need 2 volunteers to make 25 breakfast meals each to serve to guests. Meals include a breakfast sandwich, fruit and water or juice. So in preparing the meals please put all 25 breakfast sandwiches together, 25 fruits together, and 25 water or juices together. Then the Lamb Center will sort and serve to individuals separately.Join this Project
