Needs of the Week: February 9, 2018

Every week, Interfaith shares both an in-kind donation and volunteer project “Need of the Week.” These are currently the items and volunteer projects we need the most assistance with. Give us a call today at (760) 489-6380 ext. 204 to get involved today!

This week, we need your help coming both volunteer time and in-kind donations:

In-Kind Need of the Week: New Mattresses

Interfaith is in need of new mattresses that can be donated to our Housing 1000 program. Many of our formerly homeless clients who are moving into new homes do not have the items necessary to comfortably furnish their apartment. Your donations will help our neighbors moving off the streets truly make their new home comfortable and livable for years to come.

To schedule your donation today, please contact Rob Shover, In-Kind Donations Manager, via email by clicking here or by calling (760) 215-9637.


Volunteer Need of the Week: Road to Recovery Delivery Drivers

Who doesn’t feel better after a nutritious meal? We know residents recuperating from serious illnesses or injuries at Interfaith’s Hawthorne Veteran and Family Resource Center do! Help them become healthy again and provide the basic need of nutrition by transporting meals (along with our cook) from our kitchen at 550 West Washington Avenue, Escondido to our recuperative care center at 250 North Ash Street, Escondido. While you are there, help serve the meal and afterwards return our equipment (and cook) back to our main campus.

Note: Your vehicle must have enough space to carry 3 to 4 coolers.
