How Can I Help?
Pedal for Protein                            
Pedal for Protein - September 21 - 26, 2020                                                             

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Leadership of Pedal for Protein (P4P), has decided that the beautiful and inspiring group ride will not take place this year. Instead, we are introducing “HomeSpin” for this year's event. Riders will log miles during the week of Sept. 21 - 26th. The video above is intended to give a snapshot of the way we envision the 2020 P4P campaign will run. We want to continue the value of P4P's effort in stocking local food banks throughout the Presbytery of the Redwoods with Protein-rich foods, especially as we endure the stresses of coping with its obvious and, not so obvious devastation. Our team of riders this year are: Christina and Greg Werner, Bob Miller, Mark Sachs, Bill McLeod, Doug Huneke, Pat Arce, Curtis Robinson, Hugh and Ann West and Jim Gibbs. Please support our team with a donation of pennies per mile of the team's total miles or a donation of any amount. Donations may be made on the imathlete Redwoods Presbytery Pedal for Protein webpage: https://www.imathlete.com/#/legacy?legacy?url=%2FPedalforProtein7%3Fz%3D1585867960666 or mail checks to: Redwoods Presbytery, 1226A Salvador, Napa, CA 94558 (In the memo of the check note P4P and the church name).


American Red Cross
American Red Cross - Volunteers  needed to help in local shelters

American Red Cross - Wildfire Shelter Volunteer Flyer

The American Red Cross currently has a high need for volunteers to help in local shelters after disasters, and during wildfire season in Northern California, this need is critical now more than ever.  Please help us in circulating the attached flyer.

When a wildfire or other disaster strikes, the Red Cross sets up shelters to ensure our community members have a safe place to stay. Volunteers support day-to-day activities within a shelter, which include reception & registration, ensuring meals are set up, helping with dormitory needs, disseminating information, and providing comfort. The Red Cross is seeking to train as many volunteers as possible before something major occurs. Health professionals are also needed to provide health care and assessments to clients in shelters.

Anyone interested can find out more and begin their experience at www.redcross.org/volunteertoday.   Please feel free to contact 510-421-4527 or if we can provide any more information or answer any questions.

Thank you,  Julie Mucilli | Volunteer & Youth Services Manager | American Red Cross | (510) 421-4527 |


transheartline
Trans HeartLine Volunteers

Calling all cooks, drivers and volunteers to show God’s love to those in the Transgender community as they come to the Bay Area for Gender Confirmation surgery. Jordan Decker, the founder and Executive Director of Trans HeartLine, has created a warm inviting home environment in San Anselmo to welcome and provide a safe affordable place for post surgery recovery and healing.

Just think of a time when you were ill or recovering from surgery and simply wanted to be loved, cared for, and fed. We all want and need someone to be there for us during these times of rest and healing to lessen our pain and increase our hope for full recovery. Our transgender friends have these same needs and many more as family or friends have not always supported their journeys. We invite you to join the WPC team and six other groups in this ministry. On a rotating basis once every six weeks, we provide food for the up to 7 residents and caregivers staying at the home each week. We purchase Safeway gift cards to provide staples for breakfast, lunches and snacks and provide three home cooked evening meals served family style. There are also opportunities to drive guests to and from the airport and doctor’s appointments. So whether you want to flex your cooking skills, or like to get out of the house as a volunteer driver or simply make a donation to the help fill the food need, there is something for all of us to do!

We are scheduled for the weeks of August 16, October 4, November 8 and December 20. And if you are on the fence about this loving ministry, take a look at the “thank you” video. https://vimeo.com/445030296 . Or for more information on Trans HeartLine, click here https://transheartline.org.

Come join us share the good news that God loves us all!. Sponsored by WPC's Outreach Commission,  please contact Carol Coffman if you would like to join the team at:  .

Get Ready Disaster Preparedness

WPC's High School student, Alex Winter,  reminds everyone that as we head into the fire season, we should always be prepared in the event of an emergency.   Working in conjunction with the Town of Tiburon, she created an information and preparedness check list for our community.
