FACE IT VOLUNTEERS:
Want to help? Everyone has something to offer and there are many ways that God can use you to be a blessing to the women of our Face It program.
Supplies: As part of our program we seek to help women change how they feel about themselves on the inside as well as the outside. We want them to realize their true potential whether it’s by helping them to move forward and forgive those who have hurt them or by doing makeovers and giving them professional business attire that will help them to feel more confident about themselves and get a job. Likewise, we are always in need of makeover supplies- makeup, nail polish, lotion, face wash, etc. We are also looking forprofessional business attire such as new or used women’s suits, button down shirts, and dress shoes and socks. At the end of each 6 week session there is a celebration where each woman is given a gift bag, so any little gifts such as candy or a women’s devotional book, or a nice smelling candle or bath soap etc would be appreciated as well.
Meals: We like to bless the women of Face It by providing a nice meal during Friday morning sessions. In our first session we even talk about dinner etiquette and set up a fancy meal for them to enjoy and practice using these skills. If you are gifted in the kitchen, we would love to have you make a meal for 8 or so women on a Friday morning.
Speaking: Your story is one of the most powerful tools you possess. Sharing about God’s faithfulness in your life or wisdom that you have gained from obstacles that you have overcome, has a huge impact on those who are going through similar struggles and are in need of hope and encouragement. Or are you a businessman/ woman who could talk about qualities you look for in hiring an employee? Or you could be a stay at home momwho would love to come give some parenting tips and suggestions. The possibilities are endless.
Facilities: Do you have access to a boardroom that we could take the women to for one session? It is our desire to show them that another life is possible, to have them get dressed up in business attire and go someplace where they can feel professional and listen to a presentation/ talk about the importance of hard work and setting goals for themselves.
Donations: Of course financial gifts are always welcome. The more money we have the more women we are able to reach and allow into the program.
