ADVANCE MEMPHIS

MEALS FOR THE FAITH & FINANCE CLASSES

Now that the pandemic is over, class sizes have started to build back up, and more students are coming through their services! This also means that they have more spots open for meal providers. Bringing a meal is one of many ways that they try to help their volunteers connect with students and build lasting relationships with the community and is also a lot of fun! 

Contact emiller@advancememphis.org for more information.

WORLD RELIEF MEMPHIS

ROAD RUNNERS

October 11–December 15

Tuesday & Thursday mornings

One of World Relief's most pertinent needs for volunteers right now is RoadRunners. Language and transportation are some of the biggest challenges our clients face when they are resettled here in Memphis. We want to make sure that they are able to attend English class at Connect Language Center, so we offer transportation services. 

Their next English class cycle is October 11th through December 15th . Classes are every Tuesday and Thursday and they start at 9:30am and end at 11:30am. If you know anyone who is interested in this volunteer opportunity, please have them contact Lydia Milton or World Relief's ministry liaison, Diane Brower.

HOUSING ITEMS FOR REFUGEE FAMILIES

They also have the full list and an amazon wish list.

GOOD NEIGHBOR TEAMS

Help a recent refugee or asylee adjust to American life by walking alongside them with a group of volunteers (a small group of your friends and/or fellow church members). You'll be their guide from the very beginning, from meeting them at the airport, to helping enroll them in social services, to building a relationship.

For more information, contact Diane Brower.
