Volunteer with the FDWDAC Outreach Committee

The Outreach Committee has designated Saturday, June 1st at the Armory on Brown Road for our next volunteer project.

Volunteers will be working in whatever capacity is needed, there will be two shifts, 9am-12noon and 1pm-4pm, location is at The Armory on Brown Street.

Some of the assignments can include:

  • Help make travel arrangements with the family’s sponsor – Spanish usually required
  • Help shepherd families to medical check, showers, identify their beds, etc.
  • Preparing travel bags
  • Provide transportation to the bus station or airport
  • Help prepare meals
  • Sorting donated clothes
  • Entertaining children
  • Make beds
  • Bring a map to show them where they are and how far it might be to where they’ll be going

You don’t have to know everything, the site coordinator will give direction – you are just a volunteer ready to help as needed.

Please contact Marianne Lappin, past Vice President of FDWDAC– text or call her at 575.644.0444 or email at and she will make arrangements for you with shift assignments, etc.

We are urging you to consider volunteering for this worthwhile project which will help those who have endured so much in their home country, during their journey to the United States and are still encountering unnecessary treatment. Let’s show our commitment to welcoming the less fortunate and be compassion and as generous as possible. If you’re unable to volunteer on June 1st, keep in mind there continues to be a need for clothing, especially underwear – for children, men, and women, all sizes or possibly consider a financial contribution – anything is appreciated. I look forward to working with many of you as we continue with our Outreach Volunteer projects.
