Opportunities to Serve Others
Local Food Delivery
The city of Calera is seeking volunteers to pick up and deliver food to elderly citizens during the middle of the day. It would require picking up food at the Senior Citizen Center in the late morning, and delivering it to 12-15 people around the city. You can volunteer as an individual, or if we have enough who would like to help, we can take a day of the week as a church and cover that day each week. If you're interested, contact Pastor Ken, or if you need more information, you can contact Brandi at the city of Calera (668-3028).
