Episode Description:

SnowCap: Providing a Safety Net With The Help of Volunteers and BVSers

In the mid 1960's, the basic life needs of many in Portland, Oregon's, East Multnomah County were not being met by any agency or organization. Peace Church of the Brethren and 25 area churches stepped in to help fill the void, felt by so many residents. Now, and for the past 50 years, SnowCap Community Charities has been providing emergency food and clothing to over 8,000 low-income neighbors each month.

With over 1,000 volunteers, SnowCap represents the faith community in Multnomah County in a positive way. For many in this country, it is a time when the cost of housing is sky-rocketing and renting an apartment is out of reach for many. Many people are just falling through the cracks. Programs like SnowCap are providing a ''safety net for many.''

For Peace Church of the Brethren, the involvement with SnowCap was a ''natural fit,'' being a community that believes in doing what Jesus did by helping people meet the practical and spiritual needs of day-to-day life.

Since the Fall of 2010, Peace Church has supported SnowCap with Brethren Volunteer Service workers to assist their outreach and service needs. The volunteer efforts of two volunteers from Germany are featured. BVSers Jonathan Faust and Freddie Stoeckman meet with the host of ''Brethren Voices,'' Brent Carlson to share how they became volunteers 7,000 miles from their home in Germany. Also interviewed are Kirsten Wageman, Director of SnowCap and BVSer Anna Kajelj who while volunteering, painted a ''Garden Mural'' for all to enjoy.
