Catholic Charities Marian House recommends volunteers with an increased risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, age 65 and older, those with underlying medical conditions, or compromised immune systems, consider these factors before choosing to volunteer. With a June 8 resumption of a hot meal service, volunteers are needed for the following shifts:
Minimum age for volunteers is 13 on weekdays, 14 on weekends, under 16 accompanied by an adult.
Please do not "just show up." The dining room was reconfigured with round tables to provide six foot physical distancing for diners. Hot meals will be plated and set on the tables before 36 diners and three families (for the family room) enter the building. Hot to-go lunches will also be offered. For the meal preparation and assembly, volunteer work stations are designed six feet apart to encourage as much physical distancing as possible. All staff and volunteers are required to wear masks.For more information call the Volunteer Office Help Desk at (719) 866-6559 or email: VolunteerOffice@ccharitiescc.org, or
