It’s Our Turn for Family Promise – Nov. 8-17

Family Promise (FP) has a new ‘apartment shelter’ model for helping families who are experiencing homelessness. Instead of traveling from church to church, families now live temporarily in a house while participating in the program.  
From Nov. 8-17, 2021 FUUBC has committed to provide meals and groceries to the three families staying at two sites:  

Site 1: 2253 Raymond Avenue, Reading, PA 19605 

Morales Family and Williams Family (total: 3 adults, 4 children ages 1-5)

Site 2: 1209 Meade Street, Reading, PA 19611

Sanchez Family (2 adults, 2 teens ages 13 & 16)

Volunteers should drop off the meal or groceries on Mondays & Wednesdays directly at the site at 6:00pm. Volunteers are expected to hand sanitize, wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of distance as often as possible. Volunteers can also donate/mail gift cards for food and clothing and items for the shelter homes directly to the FP Office (325 N. Fifth Street, Mon-Thur before 4:30PM. Phone:(610) 373-3323). 

If you have any questions, please call Carla at 610-301-4522.  SIGN UP HERE TO VOLUNTEER
