    Saint Paul’s hosts four families each March through the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN). Our community is asking for volunteers to provide dinners each night in the Parish Hall, to stay overnight as an emergency contact and to read to the children. Volunteers are needed March 8-29th for each night of the three weeks that these families are staying with us. "Our community is asking for volunteers that could help to provide a nightly meal for the families, spend some time reading to the children, or stay overnight as an emergency contact. There are plenty of different types of tasks, so I will follow up via phone or email to find the perfect job for each volunteer," Shara Dunham, Saint Paul's Outreach Coordinator.
