Get on the Bus

July 7, 2014

Get on gotb3the Bus needs your help for the trip to Folsom Prison!  

  • On the Evening of July 25th, Holy Family will be hosting a “sending event” for the Inland Empire bus that will be traveling to Folsom Prison, north of Sacramento.  This event consists of our hosting dinner at Holy Family for the families before they leave on their trip to visit their dads in prison.

We need volunteers to help with:
set up (7 – 8 pm)
cleanup (10 – 10:30pm),
serve the families their meal, dessert, and drinks (9 – 10 pm)
family greeters (8:30 – 10:30 pm).  We  need at least one greeter per family.

The job of the greeter is to welcome the family as they depart the bus and escort them into the parish hall to their table, help the family with any logistics (travel bag, dinner) during their stay, talk to them about their upcoming trip and, when the time comes, assist them back onto the bus for a friendly and cheerful send off.

 If you would like to volunteer as a family greeter you will need to have completed and be current VIRTUS training (i.e. “Safeguard the Children”)

If you are interested in help with this event please contact Candy Krueger at gbomom_01_02@yahoo.com or 626.221.9797 or Mary Schimmoller at mschimmoller@holyfamily.org or 626.403.6113

We are also looking for volunteers for July 10, 2014 for a Travel Bag stuffing Party at St. Joseph’s Center at 7:30.  If you would like to help with this event please contact our Travel Bag Coordinator Jacquiline Wagner, jacquilinewagner@hotmail.com.

Uniting Children with their Mothers and Fathers in Prison

 

But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant;

and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
