Street Ministry Evening Meals
Three times each month our Street Ministry teams prepare a meal and take it to St. Vincent DePaul Food Center. The group serves the meal and interacts with all people who come for the evening meal. Supplies are purchased by the group and meals are prepared in our church kitchen. Each delicious full course meal is served with a smile and encouraging words to homeless and working poor in our community.
Street Ministry Underwear & T-Shirt Drive
Many people are living on the street or in shelters (mostly men) who cannot afford to purchase clothes for themselves. They receive used clothing from shelters and churches but this does not include undergarments. Donations of new underwear and t-shirts are always needed and happily accepted. One month a year Street Ministry collects new underwear and t-shirts, preferably men's, to distribute to the homeless and working poor. The distribution is done during a meal served by our church, and it is wonderful to witness how receiving a small token, such as a package of underclothing, can bring so much sincere appreciation.
