A PEACEFUL PLACE

Donations Needed: We are in need of new or gently used furniture (living room/dining/kitchen, bath, bedroom (no mattresses)) donations. Donations may be delivered to our resale shop during open hours (Wed-Sat 11-3).

Client Cleaning Gift Baskets: We like to give our clients some cleaning products to get started. We place these items in a small laundry basket to present to them. Items to include: All-purpose cleaner, sponges, gloves, dish soap, hand soap, toilet cleaner and brush, paper towel roll, small package of toilet paper, tissue boxes. You may drop off the basket(s) at our Resale Shop.

Client Care teams: Individuals interested in conducting interviews; building and continuing relationships with clients.

Decorating Team: Individuals or small group members who like to decorate are welcome to join our decorating team for client move-ins.

Moving Team: (Individuals or small group members) Must be able to lift heavy furniture, sometimes up/down three flights. Having a truck and/or trailer is a bonus, but not required.

Ministry Adoption: Due to the nature of our ministry, we understand that not all members of a small group may be available to serve on short notice on one given day. However, if your group is interested in “adopting” A Peaceful Place ministry, we hope that over time all members would get the chance to serve with us as their schedules allows.

These opportunities are on an as-needed basis. We will place the Go Catalyst’s info on our email list and send out requests for help when needed.

Resale Shop Volunteers: We need small groups to help sort donations and gardening/maintaining the outside areas of our resale shop. We are also looking for volunteers to work in our downtown League City resale shop, located adjacent to League Park at 202 N. Park Avenue. Our shop is open Wed-Sat 11:00am — 3:00pm, with two shifts 11-1 and 1-3. We welcome small group members to serve together, however, we usually only need 2 volunteers per shift. Training is required, so this service opportunity is not suited to one-time serves.
