Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Reading Volunteer at Cabot Yerxa Elementary School!

*Notice. Volunteering at the school is off for now but will resume.

Here’s a chance to spend quality time with children and in a very important way: helping them learn to read.

UMCPS is once again building a team of reading helpers at Cabot Yerxa Elementary School in Desert Hot Springs. To apply, go to: https://www.psusd.us/Page/6363 and fill out the application to be a NON-SUPERVISORY VOLUNTEER. (This means you will NOT be supervising students; rather, you are helping in the classroom.) You will need to take a brief course on mandatory reporting as a part of the application process. If you have questions, contact Pastor Jane.

Asylum Seeker Project

*Notice. This project has been paused until further notice due to the current situation at the border.

Are you interested in helping asylum seekers from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador?
Whether you are fluent in Spanish, willing to work in the kitchen or sorting clothes, we are looking for volunteers who can commit to helping out the Asylum Mission at the Church of Our Lady of Soledad in Coachella on a weekly basis. For more, info@orhamidbar.org.
Please bring the following to Kabbalat Shabbat this week – these are the specific things they are in need of this week:

– New socks and underwear, small to medium sizes for both men and women, and for children

– Deodorant and toothpaste

– Coloring books and crayons

– Men’s belts
