We have been successful in engaging youth and children in service projects. Over Christmas, girl scout troops (as young as 7) provided stuffed stockings, helped our resident families decorate the Christmas Tree and sang Christmas Carols. A high school youth group also helped decorate the house for Christmas. Gilead House has had a lot of success in recruiting volunteers for our two events, especially our Mothers Matter Fundraiser. These volunteers participate year after year with an infusion of new volunteers so they know their jobs. We recruit from colleges, churches and the community. Usually we need 40+ volunteers for each event, including servers, registration, set-up, clean-up, tech, parking, etc. Our life skills program is taught by volunteers. We have been successful at attracting high quality, skilled, experienced volunteers.
