We will be closed from September 8 through 19, 2020.
Volunteer shifts will resume Monday, September 21.
Client service hours will resume Tuesday, September 22.
Most mornings will begin with a discussion between small groups of volunteers. There will be a specific subject-matter for each day and you should sign up to attend only those discussions with which you are currently involved or have an interest. To respect everyone’s time and energy, these will be limited to one hour and focused on the topic assigned.
You are encouraged to bring your feedback, suggestions, and notes to keep these discussions brief and focused. Some items to reflect on might be:
- Do I understand the process completely and know why certain things are done?
- What works well regarding this process? What’s your favorite part?
- What needs work and what suggestions do I have to improve this process?
- What am I willing to do to facilitate the implementation of these changes?
These discussions have been scheduled specifically to allow time to hear from the dedicated volunteers that keep Heart to Heart running. Your knowledge and input are necessary during this transition and in planning for the future. Please keep in mind that these are discussions and not meetings. Decisions may or may not be made at this time, but your input will contribute to any decisions made in the near future.
All discussions will take place in the parking lot at First Community South at 9am unless otherwise noted. In the event of rain, we will move the gathering to the main room at Lincoln Road Chapel. Please sign up for the discussions so we can anticipate set up needs.
If you’re unable to participate in the discussion due to other commitments, we still want to hear from you. Please send us your brief thoughts and questions. The Suggestions Box will also be out during the next two weeks for volunteers who want to write a short note.

There are some pretty big projects we want to tackle during this service hiatus and many hands are needed to complete them! Large quantities of food stock and other storage will be moved in between buildings during the second week of our hiatus. We are asking volunteers to sign up only if they are willing and able to lift and carry at least 25 pounds while walking several yards and using several sets of stairs. This will be physically taxing and we need volunteers who are able to handle the demand.
We will strictly adhere to CDC guidelines regarding social distancing at this time. For this reason, we will not allow walk-in volunteers and are limiting the number of volunteer slots available. Please respect the regulations we have put in place for these activities, for your own health and that of our community.
No worries if you cannot volunteer for the whole shift. Please indicate the approximate arrival/departure in your comments when you sign up. It would be extremely helpful to include your cell phone number in addition to an email address, so we can easily contact you with any last-minute changes of plan.
And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?
