RESPITE CARE PROGRAM is looking to add additional volunteers.  Volunteers must have a background check, TB screening by their physician and participate in a 2 hr. training session prior to joining our program.  Activities that we do include devotion, music, exercise, walking, cooking, stuffing Sunday bulletins and making items for the pre-school and our Visiting Ministry.  

Requirements include patience, a passion for caring for others and would like to 
join us 4 hrs./month, please contact Mary Lou at 703-304-6609. 
Male volunteers are especially appreciated!
