On April 26, 2013 Family Promise of Shawnee hosted its annual volunteer recognition banquet at Liberty Baptist Church. Over 75 individuals attended the event. Presenter and current board president Pastor Cliff Craig of Northridge Church of Christ opened the ceremonies with prayer and words of encouragement. A former guest shared her testimony about her experience at Family Promise of Shawnee, sharing how Family Promise provided her with a safe, caring environment until she could obtain housing.
Ten award recipients from 10 hosting and six helper churches were recognized and honored. This year the overall volunteer of the year came from Emmanuel Episcopal Church - Randy Birchall. Randy was nominated for his unwavering support for the Family Promise mission and his dedication to the families we serve.
Family Promise of Shawnee would like to recognize and acknowledge all our volunteers for their compassion and commitment to our cause – giving homeless children hope, love and safety.
