November 18, 2017 - Foster Parent Appreciation Dinner with Guardian Angels of Southwest Florida - click here to sign-up
On November 18th, Guardian Angels will be hosting a "Foster Parent Appreciation Thanksgiving Dinner" for all of our Foster Families. We are looking for volunteers to help us run this event and serve our Foster Parents. We are looking to get our volunteers involved in the following areas:
1. Serving Team: You get to serve our Foster Families as their waiters/waitresses for this dinner!
2. Childcare: You get to serve and entertain our Foster Children in their individual rooms once dinner is over! (Background check necessary)
3. Cooking Team: You get to prepare the Thanksgiving Dinner for our Foster Families!
4. Set-Up/Clean-Up Team: You get to prepare the event and tear down the event so our Foster Families don't have to worry about a thing!
This is a list of the places that we have a relationship with in our own community.
This ministry, located in Sarasota, helps provide food, clothing, children's clothing and toys, household items, small appliances and furniture through this area. They work closely with local agencies which refer families as needs are identified.
