CGS will host Safe Car Park guests during the month of September. The program provides a safe place to stay for those who are living in their cars. We are a part of a network of faith communities who work on a monthly rotating schedule. The CGS team leaders; Chelsea Byom, Sarah Janigian, Kevin Visscher, Rachel Visscher, Susan Duran. Pastor Kris and Christina Unzen provide staff support.
We have learned in our previous hosting experiences that the CGS community plays an important part in how we extend welcome and hospitality for this ministry. Volunteers are needed to assist with check-in (evening) and check-out (morning), providing a meal once a week, and staffing the hospitality room on Thursdays. Please use the link to sign-up to work during the month. (Click Here)
We will offer one meal per week to our guests, and have snacks available throughout the month. If you would like to volunteer to prepare a meal, please use the volunteer link.
Donations of restaurant, grocery and gas gift cards are greatly appreciated. Grab and go snacks are gladly accepted. An Amazon wish list has been set up to make it very easy to donate in this way. You can drop off snack donations to the table by the church office. Please mail, leave in the office, or hand deliver to one of the team members gift card donations. Cash donations are gladly accepted and will be used in the program.
If you have any questions or would like to make a donation, please contact any of the team members. If you are interested to become a part of the SafeCarPark@CGS team, please contact Pr. Kris or one of the members of the team.
