Aid for Friends (potential new Shut-in Ministry) — Next Steps

Aid for Friends (potential new Shut-in Ministry) — Next Steps

Several people expressed interest in helping shut-ins in Philadelphia. The next steps would be for me to pick up containers and start freezing meals. Please let me know if you are interested in this aspect of the program so that I can get an idea of how many trays to pick up and bring to Old First.

Here are step-by-step instructions for food preparation:

1-Pick up container from Old First along with a little handbook that tells you about most needed meals, labeling, etc.
2- When you have an extra serving of a meal, put it in the provided container and be sure to label it using the ingredient sheet included.
3- Immediately put the meal in your freezer.
4- Bring your meal(s) to Old First on Sunday and put in our freezer.
5- That’s it! I’ll handle the rest – getting it to the local freezer for Aid for Friends.

Instructions for visiting shut-ins:

1 – Let me know that you are interested in this aspect.
2 – Aid for Friends will identify someone in the area that you prefer to visit.
3 – Spend 1 hour with the shut-in one time a week.
4 -You can return week after week to check on your person.

Please feel free to speak with me if you have further questions, concerns or interest.
