As most of you know, we provide food, hygiene products and clothing (primarily for men) for the homeless year round. Each week, we have several homeless guys who come in to sort and organize donations. If you’d like to get involved and help people move forward, here are some ways to help:
Donate Clothes: We have a lot of clothing right now; but we always need used jeans, warm socks, sneakers and work-boots (size 9 1/2 thru 11). As you do your closet cleaning, think of us and we’ll pass things along. Specifically, we have a gentleman who works very hard when he can find work and needs work-boots in 9 or 9 1/2.
Hygiene Products: We maintain a supply of toothpaste, deodorant, soap, etc. that helps those living on the streets to maintain a level of hygiene that helps them find employment, etc. We are always in need of razors and deodorant.
Pickup or Heat Sandwiches: We have volunteers pick up food during the day Monday thru Friday from WaWa and bring it to the church building. On Sundays, we heat sandwiches after church and pass them out at a place downtown. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we currently heat sandwiches in the morning and deliver them to The Interfaith Day Resource Center (where homeless people can shower, do laundry, get help getting an ID, get help finding jobs, etc.). Our biggest need is for help with pickups during the day on Mondays and Wednesdays. (It takes less than an hour.)
Salvation Army Lunch: Volunteers provide a meal and serve lunch at the Salvation Army downtown. We’re expanding from every other month to once a month and will need more volunteers to prepare and bring food.
