Help Us Tidy Up for Family Promise Guests
Now that Family Promise has restarted their overnight services to families experiencing homelessness, our next host week is August 14–21. We are seeking 6-8 cleaning helpers for the St. Lawrence Parish Center (the old St. Lawrence rectory) on August 3 at 7:30 a.m. The rooms need a thorough cleaning as no one has stayed in the rooms in two years. Please contact Gloria O’Connell at (570) 220-1895 if you can spare just a few hours of your time. Thank you!
