VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
   
                                          

     The Refuge Foster Care Closet   
                      Volunteers



The Tupelo High School girls' basketball team and Coach Matt Justice volunteered at The Refuge Foster Care Closet in Belden on October 8. 

The Refuge provides resources to foster parents and children, such as clothing, toys, supplies, and hygiene products, immediately after children are placed in MDCPS (Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services) custody.




Donations of items are accepted on the second Tuesday of each month at NorthStar Church, 3528 McCullough Blvd, Belden, from 5:30-6:30.



Volunteers sort through donations, inspecting for stains, holes, etc. They then organize the donations by size and ensure that the closet is clean and items are easily accessible.



Thank you, THS Girls' Basketball Team, for volunteering and making a difference in your community!



To volunteer at The Refuge on the second Tuesday of the month, click here.
If you would like to help organize the closet but are not available on the scheduled donation night, click

FEATURED VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Wear It Well has been mobile for over two years, making it difficult for them to hold meetings, conduct classes, or transform cancer patients with makeover sessions, until now. The former home of Charles and Ruth Morris at 826 West Jefferson Street will now become a partner with Wear It Well, allowing them to use the home as their permanent location. Special thanks to Larry and Pamela Morris!

They will have a Day of Service to help get things in order with plans to open January 2020. They need volunteers to help with painting, cleaning, yard work, moving furniture, and much more.

If you are skilled in any of these areas or just want to volunteer your time and service for a great cause, please join them October 26, 2019, from 
 8 am to 5 pm
. Any amount of time is appreciated. Click
here to volunteer.

F.A.I.T.H. Food Pantry in Nettleton stays busy and is always in need of volunteers. The third Saturday of the month is distribution day. For this event, they need volunteers to pack boxes, put boxes in clients' cars, input data, manage traffic, and crush cardboard boxes. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, they need drivers to go to Tupelo to pick up product, then they need volunteers to unload the truck when it returns to the warehouse. On Wednesdays volunteers pack emergency food boxes, and on Fridays they clean up the warehouse. If you want to know more about these specific volunteer opportunities, click here.
