CGS will host the Safe Car Park in October, and once again help is needed to assist welcoming our guests to our church site. As a member of the Silicon Valley Safe Car Park network, CGS participates in hosting single adults and families sleeping in their vehicles to have a secure parking lot space. We partner with Amigos de Guadalupe Center for Justice and Empowerment, the organization that screens and refers guests to the program.
Our church community has been very welcoming to Safe Car Park guests, and now is the time to begin planning for the October visit.
1) Volunteers will be needed for evening check-in (6:30 p.m.) and morning check-out (7:30 a.m.).
2) Donations of restaurant/grocery gift cards and gasoline gift cards are greatly needed. Also, donations of non-perishable snacks will be gladly accepted. (Please, all snacks must be individually wrapped.)
The current link for instructions and volunteers to sign-up is below:
We continue to be very mindful of COVID limitations and follow the county health guidelines.
A volunteer orientation will be held via ZOOM on Sunday, September 26th at noon.
We look forward to welcoming Safe Car Park guests to CGS, and providing them a warm and welcoming place. Please feel free to contact anyone on the team if you have any questions.
