GET INVOLVED? Or really get involved

get-involvedWe’ve all been there. Asked to contribute, asked to help and we discover that it takes time, precious time, time away from other things that need attention. In other words, it takes a true commitment.

We welcome your donations of money and we welcome your donation of time. We think you’ll find that when you become personally involved, physically, emotionally, spiritually involved, you will treasure every moment and remember the time.

That’s why we’re asking you to come visit, to meet our guests and our staff and to be The Rock.

There are lots of ways to be The Rock. Choose the one that’s best for you, but make the choice. Today.

DONATE FROM YOUR HEART

We know. You get begged, implored, hit on every day.

get-involved-donateSo many choices. So many good ones.
How do you choose?

This one is pretty simple. Become a giving partner and make an impact today. Feed a body and nourish a soul. Not some time in the future after the research and done and the medicine is tested. See hope restored today.

It’s what your heart tells you to do every time you change lanes to avoid that guy with a sign at the side of the road.

There are many ways to donate. Your money, your time, your love.

VOLUNTEER

Come serve a meal, feel good about the day. .

Like others, you may want to help but can’t really give money. Consider volunteering! You know the obvious reason ~ making a personal difference in the lives of others.

But many volunteers participate for their own very personal reasons. They want to meet new people, learn new skills, learn a little about themselves, build self-esteem and confidence. Maybe gain job references by working with other volunteers. And to have fun!

We offer opportunities to prepare or serve meals, take care of clothing, clean tables, work one-on-one to figure out bus schedules, and so much more.

What’s the best way for you to volunteer? Can you fit a few hours a month into your schedule?

INVOLVE YOUR ORGANIZATION

Everyone LOVES a mission. This one’s hands-on.

Looking for a great team building opportunity? Research shows that volunteering is one of the most beneficial ways to engage your team. Join us and BE THE ROCK while you make a difference in the lives of those in need. Your team will come together in the spirit of service. Volunteering promotes a sense of accomplishment and enhances teamwork and communication skills.

1) Do unto others.
2) Help those who are less fortunate.

Just about sums it up, don’t you think?

PRAY

Short on time? Short on money? Send a prayer to our guests.

prayEverybody does it differently. Eyes open, eyes closed. Hands together? Looking skyward? Do you wait for a sad or scared time? Or when you’re happy and have to thank something bigger than you?

Maybe it’s spontaneous, when the mood calls.

How about before a meal?

Maybe at dinner tonight, say a little prayer not for the food on your table, but for the meals that we are able to present every day.

FOOD AND CLOTHING

Got soup and a warm sweater? Imagine living on the street.

It’s getting cold out there. You know how you bundle up to get from the house to the car?

Imagine not having a house or a car or anything to bundle in.

We need your gently used coats, sweaters, long-johns, all those warm things you aren’t using.

Speaking of warm, how about going to the grocery store and picking up soup or other pantry items to help your brothers and sisters?

GOODS AND SERVICES

Toothbrushes & haircuts. The things we take for granted.

When was the last time you had a haircut? Last week? Last month? Do you remember?

Here’s an equation: Haircut = Confidence.

Another one: Personal Hygiene = Job, maybe.

Here are a few necessities you may want to include :

Personal hygiene items are a must at The Rock. Our guests need them to shower and care for themselves. Consider donating travel size toiletries and other items such as toothpaste and combs.

Bring’em to The Rock!

CURRENT NEEDS

A few things we need right now.

You know all those little bottles of shampoo and lotion that you throw in your suitcase after a business trip? We need them now. Also the jeans that fit you 2 years ago. Someone else can wear them now. These are just some of the things that we need for our guests to feel human again.
