HELPING HANDS MINISTRY
First United Methodist Church Hemphill
A limited time of service but one of the most rewarding you can possibly imagine!
This will be our 3rd year of providing Helping Hands in the HISD cafeteria during lunch. The elementary students are served lunch from 10:45 to 11:30. We arrive at the elementary office about 10:35 and sign in with Karen Dougherty at the desk. Once in the cafeteria, we help guide the students through the line, helping to keep their lunch trays from spilling, help open milk cartons, ketchup packets, etc. The very youngest children often need help emptying their lunch trays. We help guide the children as they exit the cafeteria & help establish a procedure for them to follow year long.
We give and get lots of smiles . . . not only from the children but from the teacher aides and the cafeteria employees. We are not expected to discipline any child. The employees will do that if necessary.
Lunches will be served beginning August 22 @ 10:45. We try to have church members on site Monday, August 22 through the Tuesday after Labor Day, Sept. 6. That’s only 11 days of service! Serving as part of this wonderful ministry does NOT require you to be @ the cafeteria daily. You will be able to serve as you are able when you are able.
For the safety and protection of the children we must complete a background check.
Donna Broadaway has the Hemphill ISD Volunteer Handbook in the church office.
Monday – Thursday return your volunteer application to Ms. Barnett in the Administration Office, directly across from our church. You will need to have your driver’s license with you.
