What to Bring:
General
Host sites will require a certificate of insurance for your group, naming the specific facility at which you will be staying as an additional insured.
 
Host churches will provide restrooms, showers and cooking facilities where you will be able to prepare meals but Volunteer groups will have to provide their own food/groceries and prepare meals.   Marcy, Tim or one of the church hosts will facilitate getting you to local grocery stores as needed upon your arrival.   We can also do some preliminary shopping for you if you would like to provide us with a list a few days in advance.
None of the current host churches have a fee for the use of their facilities.
Cots or bunks are provided, but volunteers must provide their own bedding, pillows towels and toiletries.
