UMOM Watkins Overflow Shelter - Kid Connection

Hi Everyone!

WELCOME TO KID CONNECTION! This is our regular Friday evening at the UMOM Watkins Overflow Shelter. We will spend quality time with the children at the Watkins Overflow Homeless Shelter.

Activities include:

  • Arts & crafts
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Board games
  • Basketball
  • fun activities for all ages of kids!

Feel free to bring an arts and crafts project that can work for up to 30 kids.

Please keep in mind that UMOM is a faith-based organization. Minimum age for this will be 12 with parent or guardian accompanying you. PLEASE READ:

CHECK AT 4:00P.M. Friday, to see if this meet-up has  been cancelled.

2) Do not bring anything of value into the shelter.2) Entrances are to first knock on the double doors; next try the doorbell and lastly go to the west side and enter. Tell a worker that you are there to volunteer with The Phoenix Philanthropists!

3) Advice: always stay with children where you and the child can be seen. Do not take children to the bathroom but get their parents instead.

4) WE ALWAYS NEED DONATIONS for the shelter and our program for this is run on donations only.

NEEDs are play doh,  CONNECT FOUR GAMESS, Twister,games,  basketballs, footballs, arts and crafts projects, toddler toys, race car sets, bikes and play tents.

FOR THE SHELTER All clothes, towels, sheets, blankets, shoes, toiletries. Washed fruit,Ramon Noodles and fruit juice packs are nice to bring also.

Please follow the map details from the link under Location at the top of the event info.

Thanks for all you do!

    Hi Lorraine. It will just be three of us tonight. I am waiting for my husband's flight to get in on time (3:45). If something goes wrong with that I may be late but will definitely give you a call. I am bringing clothes and a few toys and books tonight. See you later.

    Great! If anyone has roller blades or roller skates to donate that would be great! Also bikes or can fix the bikes there..they need tubes..14 inch?..16 inch, 18, inch; 20 inch it looks like ..that would be more awesome! I am also collecting candy for our Halloween Parking Lot Trick or Treat and unwrapped presents for our Christmas Celebration where as we give each child a ticket to pick a new toy from the gift table and have a party...hopefully we can go around twice as far as presents! I would like a bag of candy for each of the women also so the more candy I obtain the better and hence will make baggies for each woman also..120! Thank you for your help and making these events happen! I am starting early this year on the holidays so I will then know what I may have to buy. WE receive no money to run this so volunteers and myself spend our own money to buy these items and make events happen which I truly appreciate! Any donations or help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    I am going to try to bring three boys but will let you know closer to Friday. At least two others, though.
