FBC Community Partner volunteer Opportunities
Sugar Creek Elementary School
FBC members help make Sugar Creek a wonderful place to be and they would love to have you volunteer in their school. If you are interested in donating your time you must complete the background form through Bushue. This has to be completed each year. You will not hear back from Unit 5 unless there is a problem. We do ask that you complete the background check at least 7 calendar days before you volunteer. Thank you for supporting our students and staff and being a part of our school community, your time is GREATLY appreciated!
Safe Harbor Homeless Shelter
For over 12 years a small group of FBC members have faithfully purchased, prepared and served a meal once a month at the Safe Harbor Shelter in downtown Bloomington. It only takes a couple of hours if you cook and less than an hour if you serve of your time.
