A non profit organization providing shelter and support to pregnant and parenting women is looking for some help.
Kedesh Maternity Home in Woodstock is looking for volunteers. They are looking for people of all ages to help raise money for the non profit organization.
Board Chair Lindsay Nadeau tells Heart FM a little more about Kedesh Maternity Home.
"We're a non profit organization with the mission of providing shelter and support to pregnant and parenting women in our community. Right now we're offering a community program called Home with a Heart - that's a home making and life skills program that we're offering to women in our community."
Kedesh Maternity Home officially launched their first Home with a Heart program last year. They will be launching a second Home with a Heart program this fall and as of right now they have five women registered.
Nadeau adds they also need help running programs.
"We're looking for volunteers of all ages to help with our programming. We need volunteer drivers, we need help with snack preparation, and child care."
People interested in volunteering are welcome to attend a meeting on Thursday July 28th at the Faith Community Church of the Nazarene. That meeting is set to start at 7 p.m.
