MLK Event Volunteer Opportunity

MLK Event Volunteer Opportunity

On January 21, from 11:30am-1:00pm, FUMC Allen will host the Collin County Martin Luther King Jr Appreciation Day celebration in our sanctuary and gym.  We are expecting between 1,000-1,100 guests.

We need your help in extending the hospitality of our church to all who enter our doors.  Here are just a few places where we need your help:

  • Bake two dozen cookies and place in individual baggies for the sack lunches we will provide to our guests on January 21. Deliver your cookies to the Fellowship Hall before noon on either Friday, January 18, or Saturday, January 19. Please mark your items with “MLK.”
  • Assemble sandwiches on Sunday, January 20, in the gym. We have two shifts available: 1:00pm-2:30pm or 2:30pm-4:00pm. We need at least 20 people per shift.
  • Pack sack lunches on Monday, January 21, from 9:00am–11:30am in the gym.
  • Serve as a host in our gym from 1:00pm-2:00pm at the Meet and Greet for John McCaa, our master of ceremonies.

If you can help in any of these volunteer areas, please contact Ruth Swingle.
