I have a 2000 Chrysler sebring and it started pouring antifreeze while I was just sitting in park. I think it's my water pump but I need to drive it until can get it fixed. Is there any temporary fix?

No temp fix. You can add more water/coolant and drive it, but it will quickly leak back out and you can overheat your engine causing more damage. Look to see if it is a hose that can be quickly repaired. If not, a quick drive to the local garage or tow is in order.

Good call tom just a foot note the pump once it starts leaking the bearings inside pump contaminated and can seize snapping belt 2.5 is interference. (Valve to piston damage)

Dont drive it if you dont have to!!! Head gaskets are notorious for blowing on these cars, so if your engine temp gets high park it so it doesnt cost you more later.
