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, games and as much one to one interaction with the children as possible. Plan on being there from 6 pm to 8 pm. We will be interacting with kids from 6 months to early teens. This gives the parents a break from their kids and it shows the children that others care about them.

Please keep in mind that UMOM is a faith-based organization. Minimum age for this will be 12 with parent or guardian accompanying you. You need to be comfortable that your kids will be comfortable interacting with peers or younger kids that are homeless.

PLEASE READ:

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

2) Do not bring anything of value into the shelter for there isn't a place to keep.3) 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!4) 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.5) WE ALWAYS NEED DONATIONS for the shelter and our program for this is run on doantions only. NEEDs are play doh, games,  basketballs, footballs, arts and crafts projects, toddler toys, race car sets 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.

Signing up or coming to the shelter  as a volunteer for the Phoenix Philanthroists acknowledges that you release UMOM Shelters and The Phoenix Philanthropists from any and all liabilities concerning your participation in this activity including your children and guests. Random backgroud checks are conducted.

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

    They were lovely children Keith and thank you for the pool, bike, car and other things. The children were having a ball in the pool when we left so we left it out for them. There were about 6 in there! Also thank you for filling out another form. I know I have seen it before after looking at it but now I for sure have it on file. Thanks again and have a lovely weekend with your little ones!
