Closed for Labor Day

In order to give our staff and volunteers a much-needed day off, we will not be open on Monday September 1st.  And, it couldn’t come at a better time since we crushed our single-day record this week with 159 meals on TuesdayMan_Hammock_Colored.  Our previous high was around 130!  What a day but we are always reminded of the story of Jesus feeding the masses with the measly few loaves and fishes.  With God’s help, and the help of his good stewards who help support this ministry with their time, talents and treasures, we have been able to serve all who come.  Thank you all!!

Meet Katie and Jim

These two wonderful people can be found almost every day manning the door or behind the scenes at the soup kitchen.  Katie is working with Phyllis Rotonno to make the transition to director as seamless as possible.  We find that our “guests” find the routine very comforting and therefore supports our Mission Statement to create a peaceful and safe environment.

Katie and her husband Jim, while officially “retired” have always felt the need to help those less fortunate.  Jim is usually found behind the scenes and is helping with our community outreach and fund raising.

Please keep us in your prayers daily.

New Items on Our Wish List

AgingVanUnfortunately, we are rapidly approaching the day when we will have to retire our aging van.  She’s costing too much in repairs.  We are praying for a donated cargo van.

This van is used almost every day for food pickups at local restaurants, food drives, grocery stores, etc. so our ability to feed those in need is heavily dependent on this vital piece of equipment.  Our mechanic assures us, she doesn’t have many days left in her.

Merry Christmas

Baby Jesus with Mary and Joseph

During this time of waiting for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and

Savior, we are even more aware of the troubles of those around us.  It is surprising how many of our regular visitors to our soup kitchen have issues other than poverty.  Many are afflicted with severe mental and physical handicaps while others are saddled with a prison record or felony conviction which severely hampers their employment opportunities.

For those without family and friends to rely on for support, we like to think of our ministry as a “home away from home” which is why the focus is on providing a clean, non-preachy, and peaceful refuge.  In order to do this we are in constant need of prayers and monetary support as well as creative and heart-felt programs to help those in need to find their way out what many see as a hopeless situation.

We will be closed on Christmas Day as well as New Year’s Day.  The rest of the time we have decorated the dining room with cards made from a local school and other Chistmas decorations.

Please accept our wishes for a safe and wonderful celebration of the baby Jesus.

Special Lunch Service Thank You

PolloTropicalDay2PolloTropicalDay1

We were recently blessed by a wonderful group who provided a special lunch with food from Pollo Tropical. Not only did they bring all the chicken and sides, they stayed to help serve and clean up.

Our guests were pleasantly surprised by this treat. The young gentleman who organized it, wanted to do something special to help others on his own birthday. Thank you Richie and your amazing group.
