PPDC’s 2017 Summer Promise begins full swing July 5 and runs through August 25. This year, 140 children in grades two through eight will enjoy a variety of camps both on-site and around the metropolitan area Monday through Friday from 9:00 until 3:00 at our PPDC Central Campus and 50 children will attend our Fairfield Court Summer Promise program. Summer orientation dates: Wednesday, June 7, 6:00-7:00 or Thursday, June 15, 10:00-11:00.
Here’s a listing of some of the volunteer needs we have this summer:
Clare’s Camp: July 10-14 (Middle School); July 24-28 (Fairfield Court Elementary); August 7-11 (Central)
The Clare’s Camp program takes place at Roslyn Retreat Center on River Road in Henrico. With a traditional VBS format, groups rotate from activity to activity, ranging from recreation to arts and crafts. Volunteers are needed as Camp Counselors, Junior Counselors, and Leaders and Assistants for Arts & Crafts, Recreation, Music, Bible Study and Food Preparations. Commitment: One week. Full job descriptions are available upon request, and a separate application is required for this camp.
Food Distribution Workers
Distribution takes place the first and third Wednesday of each month. We need approximately 5 to 10 volunteers to help with registration, unloading food, sorting food and assisting clients with food selections. We begin registration at 8:00 a.m. and finish up by noon. This is a great volunteer opportunity for church or youth groups. Dates for summer distributions: June 21, July 19, and August 2 and 16
If you can’t join us during our summer program, but would like to help, this is a great group project. Each afternoon, we will send our students home with a snack bag, included are such items as a box drink, whole wheat crackers, baked chips, mini-muffins, applesauce or fruit cup (no sugar added); nuts or seeds (pistachios, peanuts, sunflower seeds); fruit roll up, cookie or brownie.
