…for a Weekend/Weeklong Work Retreat
May the following serve as a guideline…
Often groups want to come and serve for a weekend or even for a whole week. We welcome these groups to come serve with us
The Requested Donation for a Weekend Work Retreat is a $150 deposit which is due with the application. This is good for any size group. In addition we request $30 per person per night of stay.
The Requested Donation for a Weeklong Work Retreat is a $200 deposit which is due with the application. This is good for any size group. In addition we request $30 per person per night of stay.
The balance of the Requested Donation (total of $30 per person per night) is due with Team Profile along with the Volunteer Releases.
Good Works has many needs that we are trusting God to meet. If you are able or would like to help with the cost of any of these needs, please let us know.
Organizing a material donation drive from our needs list is another way in which you can help us. You can learn about some of our ongoing needs by clicking here, or we can send you a current urgent needs list. We are trusting God to move his people to help with HIS MINISTRY here.
You may also want to consider making a donation to our Neighbors Helping Neighbors materials fund. Good Works does not provide materials for these projects. It is beyond our resources to do so. But a contribution from your group can make a significant impact on someone who is requesting assistance. For example, materials for a wheel chair ramp cost around $800 depending on the length. While this is a need people have, the funds for the ramp materials are often lacking. Your group can step into this gap and make a significant difference in someone’s life.
Why do we call this a donation?
Although this could be called a fee that is due, we prefer to consider it a donation. We want Work Retreats to be accessible to all groups of various economic levels. Each year we have a few groups come that are not able to give the requested amount to us. We recognize that for some churches and groups this donation request can be a challenge. For others, this is not difficult. Please do not allow this request to stop you from coming and serving with us. We would like to adjust this donation according to the circumstances of your group. If you find that this suggested amount is too much, please discuss this with us so we can work with you to come up with a more workable option. Your presence with us and the relationships that will form is what is most important to us.
The Request Donation is what makes Work Retreats possible. It is an important financial resource to fund the maintenance and development of the Good Works properties and facilities. It also helps to defray the expenses associated with your stay in the Hannah House. Most importantly, your support enables the ministry of our staff, interns and volunteers, including your group, to make an impact into countless lives of people in our community.
