Honada's family volunteer team

Sponsorship Team for Honada's family

Sponsorship Area    Task(s)                                                   Volunteers
Housing

* Need a coordinator for this area
Once accommodation is found, we need a team to organize furniture, and all household goods, and set up their home. Many people would like to donate items, so much of this job is collecting/transporting, saying yes or no to donated items, and delegating purchases to various parishes, for instance, cleaning products can be provided by one parish, bedding by another.
