LEADERS NEEDED!

Open Door needs a few more leaders. Every leader position needs four to five leaders so that a different leader volunteers every Saturday, with the fifth person leading during five Saturday months and also occasionally can substitute for another leader. Every leader then volunteers only one day a month. Leaders have two days of training from an experienced leader. 

Early Shift leader (7 - 9 am) helps to set up the kitchen for food preparation and dish washing, working with the kitchen leader and kitchen volunteers.  Currently one to two more leaders are needed.  

Dishwasher (8:15 - 11:30 am) washes and sterilizes all dishes, utensils and pots, working with the kitchen leader, the cleanup leader, and volunteers. Currently one more dishwasher is needed.  

Brunch B Clean-up Leader (9:30 - 11:45 am) directs volunteers in clean-up activities in kitchen, dining hall, hallways, stairs and the exterior grounds. Currently one to two more leaders are needed.

Fig Leaf Stockroom Leader (8:30 - 10:30 am) works in the 4th floor clothing store stock room, showing available volunteers (usually two to three) how to select donated clothes to stock in-season clothes for the Men's and Women's stores. Currently two to three more leaders are needed.

Each Saturday from 9 to 10:30 am, UUMC serves more than 200 brunch meals to the homeless and those in need. We also provide used clothing and toiletries at our Fig Leaf Store during those morning hours.

These ministries are made possible through the volunteer help of our members, parishioners of other area congregations, local service group members and individuals.
