Ways to Volunteer

The SON Foundation House is supported by individual donations, corporate sponsorships and foundation gifts. So that we may begin this tradition of hospitality, we welcome and rely on the support of the community. Without your generous support, we could not continue to provide a "home away from home" for people facing a medical crisis.

Weekend Whole House Clean
Each weekend, we need volunteers to help us keep the SON Foundation House tidy. For 2-4 people, the job only takes about 1-1.5 hours. It will involve cleaning the kitchen, living room, dining room, resource room, and two bathrooms.

Maintenance & Mowing Crew
During the lawn mowing season, we are in need of volunteers to come to the house to mow the grass and do light weeding/yard clean up. The SON Foundation provides the mower and equipment.

Monthly Meals for Guests
Our guests really enjoy the comforts of a home-cooked meal provided by our volunteers.

SON Foundation Prayer Team
The SON Foundation is looking for volunteers to be a part of our Prayer Team. We would like to have volunteers praying with and for our guests on a regular basis.
