OUR VOLUNTEERING ACTIVITIES

We partner with local organizations to offer monthly opportunities to engage in volunteering activities

Project #1: Help the Houston Angels by Donating Fall/ Halloween Boxes

Houston Angels Mission is to walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.

 

Our Project: Donation of a Love Box with the theme of Halloween or Fall (Autumn) for the families that are on the waiting list. We will have a list that will contain the number of the family with the theme that they choose (Halloween or Fall) and the amount of Foster Kids on that household. You will choose a family and pick up a box at Sunrise on Sundays. If you are interested in participating but cannot go on Sundays to pick up a box contact claudia.deoliveira@sunrisespiritist.org

 

Deliver: The boxes must be delivered to Sunrise until October 8; or you can choose to personally deliver the box to the family that you choose by that date.

 

What do I include on the box?

 Some suggestions for the items to be included in the box:

• Halloween/ Fall arts & crafts, activities

• Halloween trick-or-treating supplies

• Halloween/ Fall candy and snacks

• Pumpkin carving kit

• Baking supplies (cupcakes, cookies, etc)

• Paper products: paper towels, paper plates, toilet paper, etc.

• Lysol wipes, hand sanitizer

 

Should I decorate the outside of the box?

Yes! Yes! And yes! See below a few examples from past years. A lot of families have a lot of fun doing this project! It is a great away to get all the kids, family members, friends and co-workers to work together to help others. You can also pray together once the box is done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other options to help:  Would you like to become a mentor for a teenager? The mentor will need to commit to meet the teen every two weeks to set goals and help them achieve their dreams. The program is a one-year commitment. High school youth mentors are strongly encouraged to stay with the teen until graduation. If you are interested send an email to:

communication@sunrisespiritist.org
