This week First Christian was called upon to help Casa Alitas host families. We thank our volunteers and staff for their rapid response to get spaces ready, prepare meals and snacks for their trip, purchase clothes, and schedule transportation to the airport.
Thank you to Laura Allen, Lori Bryant, Krysia González, Susan Harris, Sam Morales, Alejandra Rosas, Teresa Soqui, Sharon Sorensen, and Janis Sherick.

We are not sure when we will be receiving more families. But we would like to be prepared, as the groups are starting to arrive quickly. Currently, we are offering space for 10 people who are staying in separate rooms according to the number in the family. They arrive after screening and testing at Casa Alitas. We are giving them an orientation which includes observing our Covid protocols of wearing masks in all public places except when eating and social distancing in common areas. We anticipate needing help with the following:

  • Shopping for and serving meals, especially breakfast and lunch; Casas Alitas has been providing dinner meals
  • Transportation to the airport or bus station
  • Laundry/ setting up rooms (usually late morning or early afternoon
  • Donating new or gently used clean clothing or other items such as toiletries, sanitary products etc. (We hope to create an Amazon List soon)
  • Cash donations for travel or to purchase needed items
 Please contact the church office, Pastor Ailsa, Lori Bryant, Susan Harris, or Janis Sherick if you can help.

Thank you for your support,
The Hospitality Team
