Room at the Inn, like Little Bethlehem, looks different this year. The primary location is at Unitarian Universalist Church the entire season from December 13- March 14. The isolation/at risk guests will be housed at the Eastwood Motel. All this requires more than double the staffing as in the past as fewer volunteers are able to risk the social contact.

Fairview is in charge of the light evening meals and breakfasts sack meals:

Feb 14 @ 5pm thru Feb 19 @ 8pm (6 evenings & 5 breakfasts)·        
Feb 21 @ 5pm thru Feb 26 @ 8 pm (6 evenings & 5 breakfasts)

Note that it begins with laundry but all tasks are included. There are some tasks that do not involve guest contact i.e. laundry take and pick up, runners between the 2 buildings, or in a socially distanced meal prep at Fairview multipurpose room every afternoon during above dates from 2-4 pm to make sandwiches, fill bags with light evening and breakfast meals. If funds allow, I would like to have a couple warm meals during our time.

FOOD: You can boil & peel eggs (please mark bag with date), bake cookies or brownies and place in snack bags (2 per bag) and deliver to the Fairview kitchen during office hours. I will pick up Sun, Tue and Thu during the dates above.

PURCHASE/DONATE: Items that will be needed during our designated time and throughout the season are: individually packaged fruits such as mandarin oranges and applesauce, coffee (regular and decaf), individual orange juice, coffee creamer and instant cocoa (individual & full size), condiments i.e. mayo and mustard (individual preferred), hot sauce, peanut butter and jelly.
