The Beacon is a local organization dedicated to serving poor and homeless individuals by providing services that restore dignity, self-respect and hope. Since 2007, this day center has been providing hot meals, clothing, private shower and lavatory facilities, laundry services, and case management to people living on the streets of Houston.
On Monday, January 21, (the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday), Westbury UMC will staff volunteer service hours at The Beacon. The shifts are 9–11 am, 11 am–1 pm and 1–3 pm with 15 volunteers per shift. Childcare for birth through 2nd grade will be available at the church for families who take the first shift (9–11 am). The minimum age for volunteers is 13 and they must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or chaperone. Let us prepare to be in service together and bless our brothers and sisters through The Beacon.
Please contact the church office to register and if you have question contact Rev. Romonica Malone-Wardley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
