How is CAM Staying Safe?

Even though CAM is open and operating, we have a plan in place to mitigate any harm or fear to our staff and volunteers. We’ve taken the necessary precautions to ensure mass safety on our campus.

  • We have gloves, masks, hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes and other cleaning supplies to ensure our campus stays as clean as possible
  • We’re wiping down all door knobs, handles, tables, and all other surfaces with Clorox bleach every few hours
  • We are providing all services outside while instilling the social distancing rule of 6ft or more
  • First Presbyterian Church has so graciously decided to fund 2 outdoor hand washing stations for our downtown campus; one of which will be right next to our porta-potties and the second will be placed at the ramp leading up to our client building. Clients will be asked to wash their hands before entering.
  • We’ve cancelled our daily Bible study to eliminate the gathering of too many people in a confined space

Group Volunteers

Acting, doing, serving, and loving others can be an incredible experience; we want CAM to be that for people in our community. CAM has opportunities for groups of all sizes! We invite families, churches, schools, local businesses and other organizations to join us for one of our CAMpassion Days! You can make a difference in someone’s life by engaging in one of these CAMpassion Days. These, usually 1-time volunteer opportunities, are available multiple Saturdays a month all year long. If one of these scheduled days does not work for you or your group, you may check with us to coordinate your own specific CAMpassion Day. Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Emily Kirtner, at ekirtner@cam-sa.org or 210-222-1553.
