Donations Needed for Chrysalis House

The Chrysalis House is a nonprofit organization that helps women with substance abuse problems get back on their feet and they are right at Calvary's back door. Many of the women in the program come to the ROC for exercise and recreation, as well as volunteering at the ROC. Calvary has a small closet where we are able to provide clothing and miscellaneous items for these women and their children. The new or gently used items needed are listed below:

Women's fall/winter clothing
Jewelry
Perfume
Bath and body items
Purses and shoes
Winter clothing for children babies through 4T
Small toys or books for children through age 4

Items can be taken to the ROC office or dropped off at the Donation Station. Contact Brian Varble or Maurine Mitchell for more information. 

Volunteers Needed for God's Pantry

Volunteers Needed for God's Pantry

This is such a wonderful ministry in our community. Calvary serves at St. Luke United Methodist Church every Tuesday and Thursday. This gives us the opportunity to share God's love in a practical and hands-ons way. Sunday School Classes or individuals are needed to help with the first Thursday and third Tuesday of the month. Please contact Brian at 232-8955 or by email if you are interested in serving at God's Pantry.

Mission Lexington in need of Volunteers

The Mission Lexington free clinics are in need of more volunteers to work the front desk (answering phones, calling with reminders, checking patients in, calling to check eligibility criteria, scanning documents into the electronic records system, cleaning, etc.). Please e-mail Huston Hastie at hlhastie09@gmail.com if you can help at the Dental Clinic, or call Peg Nethery at 272-0219 if you can help at the Medical Clinic. We could use licensed providers as well (MDs, DMDs, RNs, CNAs, Phlebotomists, Hygienists, Dental Assistants, etc.).
