Father’s Day

On Father’s Day, June 18, 2017, Boeing volunteers came out and volunteered at UCO’ Drop-In-Center.

Melody and the volunteers served chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, vegetables, and dessert. A fitting dinner for Father’s Day!

The TV was finally up and running and the guests were happy to have it back. They stayed, watched TV, and relaxed out of the sun’s harsh heat. It was quite hot on Sunday. As the song goes- it was one of those “lazy, hazy days of summer“.

People gathered in the computer lab to check in with relatives, see the news, work on resumes, and google jobs and apartments.

An announcement was made at check in and during the meal that Urban Community Outreach will be closed on Sundays during the month of July due to the DAYS children’s summer camp using the facility. Yvonne will be posting signs in front of the church with that message too. I am reminding the Multi-Service Center today of the July closure. However, we will be working with clients during July and also doing deep cleaning of the kitchen, and walk in freezer and refrigerator.

One of our clients has received section 8 and got into an apartment. We rejoice with him and also pray that he can stay clean and keep the apartment. We’ll be hovering and helping him as much as possible to make this upward transition last.

Next Sunday is the last Sunday of the month. Volunteers will come from Molina to help and we plan to hand out clothing, shoes, blankets, and hygiene items, so if you have anything we could give out…….. we would be very happy to receive it Sunday morning.

Have a great week!
