ORGANIZATION: SpiritCare Ministry to Seniors

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 4 people are interested

An experienced event organizer is required to help with volunteer appreciation and donor appreciation events for SpiritCare. You may wish to apply as a group to put on the event. You must live in the San Francisco Bay Area to be effective in this role.

At a minimum the event organizer must be able to put together a team of volunteers to organize the event. This is what you need to do:
1. Find a venue and agree on a date with the SpiritCare board.
2. Get sponsors or donors who can either make the food or pay for it. In the past we have used a church and volunteers from care communities have made breakfast, on another occasion a care community sponsored the breakfast at a church and paid for and ordered a caterer, on yet another occasion a care home was the venue for the breakfast and they made and served food. So it's up to you to find an option that works with help from board members.
3. Attract volunteers to attend the breakfast using social media, emails, phone calls and online invitations.
4. Set up registration system and keep the board informed of how many attendees are likely to attend.
5. Find a speaker with the help of board members, communicate with the speaker.
6. Create programs, table displays, decorations.
7. Ensure the room layout is suitable and set up advantageously.
8. Check people in at the door, possibly tracking COVID status.
9. Find musicians to perform them at the event - for example a youth choir, or adult trio/quartet/soloist, accompanist.
10. Design the program and print it.
11. Decide whether to give out table gifts - e.g. See's Candies. Purchase gifts.
12. Arrange for table decorations.
13. Arrange with the food provider the menu and schedule for setup, delivery and clear up.
14. Ensure the venue is cleaned up.
15. Collect donations from sponsors and/or attendees - can use online systems with help from SpiritCare.

It is particularly useful if you know of a care community that would be willing to host fund-raising or volunteer events - we can give you some leads to contact.

About SpiritCare Ministry to Seniors



Mission Statement

The purpose of SpiritCare Ministry to Seniors is to serve the spiritual and emotional needs of the elderly living in long-term care centers by: sharing the comfort and encouragement of the gospel of Jesus Christ providing chaplaincy services for hospital residents and staff organizing and supervising worship and visitation teams from various churches and community groups educating the public about issues of aging and spirituality through publications, seminars, and special events


For over 30 years we have provided worship services in care communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. We need volunteers who can help with the services by accompanying hymn-singing on a piano, singing, reading scripture and helping hand-out music. We also need volunteers to help with our administration, helping in outreach to volunteers and volunteer management. We serve over 60 care communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and are looking for volunteer pastors who can take a home and provide a communion service once a month there. We served about 1400 residents a month in care communities. We need people who can visit regularly to chat with older adults one-on-one - maybe read a story, share a game, pray with people or share pictures. We also need board members who have a passion for helping older adults and agree with our mission to help raise funds. This is a ministry that families with children can participate in. Children can communicate with elders by sharing their stories, pictures and toys. The ministry also helps children develop public speaking and musical talent by encouraging them to help in the worship services - for example a group of children may sing a song or play music with a guitar. We also have talented musical children who can give recitals of acoustic instruments.
