VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES


Messiah is proud to be a PADS (Providing Advocacy, Dignity & Shelter) host church.  Our PADS season was ended abruptly in March as the church facilities closed due to the pandemic.  Happily, PADS Lake County rose to the challenge and secured hotel rooms for the local homeless population.  Currently the are housing 151 people in 68 hotel rooms in Lake County.  The clients have been provided with dinners and non-perishable food for breakfast and lunches in addition to lodging.  Currently they have managed to have ZERO cased of COVID-19! In a normal year we would start hosting our PADS guests in October but this year,as with many things, will be different. COVID would make hosting extra difficult due to concerns about safety to volunteers and trying to maintain a safe distance between guests  during sleeping and eating.  For these reasons PADS secured  the funds for at least 50 hotel rooms through April 2021.  They expect to be able to house the homeless population by arranging more permanent situations and using the hotel rooms.  This is awesome!  How can we help serve our vulnerable brothers and sisters?  The Lake County website gives information on volunteering or donations, but the Messiah PADS ministry wants to make it easy for Messiah members to contribute.  We have set up a Sign-Up genius page listing out the non-perishable foods that work well for the clients.  Since they are hotel rooms without kitchens and utensils easy meals are important. We will collecting these donations on August 2nd and August 16th from 10:30-10:45, right after drive-up church!  Click on the link to see what we are collecting.   Gerry Lemke and Lisa Charnogorsky
