happy spring everyone! we hope you’re staying safe and finding some fun, productive things to do with your loved ones while under quarantine. sadly due to covid-19 and because of our deep commitment to keeping our team, volunteers and guests out of harm’s way, we made the call to temporarily suspended shower services. we are optimistically aiming to relaunch on monday, may 25th at angels & sparrows soup kitchen. let’s all keep the prayers and positive vibes going; we know everyone is ready to get on with life, and we’re so ready to get back out there and do what we love most.
shower sites are ready to go!
we’ve been busy securing partnerships to host us when we’re up and running again. we’ll be running full speed ahead with 4 shower locations per week! you’ll be able to catch us at the following locations each week:
- angels & sparrows soup kitchen in huntersville each monday from 10am-1pm
- dilworth soup kitchen at first christian church on east blvd every tuesday from 10am-2pm
- spintastic laundromat on south blvd every wednesday from 10am-12:30pm
- hope chapel off of n. tyron near the men’s shelter each thursday from 11am-2pm
we are also busy securing other partner sites in areas such as sardis rd/matthews, northlake and uptown. we’ve also been working with the charlotte-mecklenburg library system and halo now, a new nonprofit birthed from the owners of kiplin auto. these people have hearts of gold! they allow individuals and families living out of their cars to park overnight in the dealership lot (that includes security and cameras) so they can get uninterrupted and much-needed sleep without being harassed or fearing the worst.
partner shout out!
we are thrilled to have established a partnership with e.r. plumbing services. dave parker is the owner and he didn’t hesitate when we reached out to them for help. they truly care about their community. we are so excited to have them on board with our mission! if you have any plumbing needs, please give them your business. support those businesses that support the mission of local nonprofits striving to make a difference!
part-time contractor and volunteers needed!
we’re looking for (very!) dependable candidates who have the flexibility to help us during the week on a part-time basis. this would be a contract position but could transition to a full-time employee role (we’re just too busy to carry on as we are now!). candidates must have a clean driving record and must be dependable (we mentioned that already right?!). prior experience hauling and towing is preferred but not required. if hauling syl, our shower trailer doesn’t intimidate you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume, current availability and any experience working with the homeless community.
we also need passionate volunteers who have a heart for those we serve, availability during the week (mainly days right now) and who are able to lift, squat and bend with ease. if you enjoy cleaning (we know we’re not the only ones out there who love it!) and engaging with others, you’d fit right in. email us to learn more.
