Volunteer Opportunities at Community Church of the Monterey Peninsula
Monthly I-Help Dinner
We host the I-HELP dinner the second Wednesday of every month.
I-HELP stands for Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program and is a program of Shelter Outreach
Plus. It offers single homeless men shelter, food, and support at area churches and temples, which host the
men one night each month. The men need to meet certain criteria to be involved in the program. Shelter
Outreach Plus provides transportation to the church by van. They eat and sleep there, then receive a simple
breakfast “to-go” of cereal bars, fruit and milk in the morning before they leave.
At a typical I-HELP dinner at Community Church, the men arrive around 6:15 p.m and are served dinner.
Volunteers are encouraged to eat supper with the men, although not everyone needs to. No clean-up is
involved – the men do it themselves. If you would like to participate, please contact Dolores Joblon at
Givingtree Benefit Shop
Our new shop opened in November 2014 and we have a great need for volunteers to help, both at the cash
register and in the sorting and pricing room. It's a fun place, and "many hands make light work!"
Please call the shop at 624-3060 if you can volunteer!
Property Steward Peggy Kuck gladly welcomes anyone who would like to lend a hand in caring for our beautiful
church campus. The all-volunteer crew appreciates help from more people able to chip in on cleaning, painting,
grounds maintenance, or any special projects (no experience required!). Please call Carole in the church office,
