If you have any questions about any of the following programs or suggestions for future service projects, please contact the Leadership Team.
1) reality ministries
Reality Ministries is a Christian organization that creates opportunities for teens and adults with and without developmental disabilities to experience belonging, kinship, and the reality of Christ’s love. The ministry has several daytime and evening programs to get involved with. The most popular is the once-a-week large gathering in various locations near Duke’s East Campus. Before volunteering, everyone has to contact their volunteer coordinator, David Sittser (http://www.realityministriesinc.org/contact). For more information from a fellow GCFer, contact Joe Longarino (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2) Meet Me at the Bridge
Meet Me at the Bridge is a Christian organization that seeks to help the lost, homeless, and hurting in cities around North Carolina. On the third Saturday of each month they have services from Noon to 2PM under the Durham Freeway Bridge at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Come at 11AM to help set up and serve in our city! (google map)
3) A Helping Hand
If you prefer to work with a more mature age group, the organization “A Helping Hand” is looking for volunteers to help with their program. Basically, volunteers will be paired up with senior citizens in the local area who may be in need of assistance with household chores, running errands, or simply wanting companionship. It’s a really great way to develop friendships with people living out in the surrounding community and also meet some of their needs.
