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!

    Please think about donating candy or Halloween treats for our Trick or Treat party on Oct. 25th, 2013. Last year volunteers handed out candy as the children went from person to person to Trick or Treat in the parking lot. You are welcome to come and hand out candy that night also! Keith Gabriel is donating 50 Halloween pumpkins and Ms. Mel and her club are providing other items but the larger the trick or treat line the better! Also I need to know if someone has a group or church that could collect unwrapped Christmas presents for the children here. Thank you for all you do!
