Hungry and Homeless

Our Brown Bag Group

We meet monthly on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9:30 am in the School Lunchroom.  The group accepts lunch meat and cheese for making monthly sandwiches for bag lunches.  All are welcome to come and help make the sandwiches and other treats to go in the lunch bags.

 

2018 Deacon’s Angel Ornaments 

We have a limited number ornaments still available – requested donation is $5 each!

We also become involved with an activity called “We Care Bags”.

It is a 1 gallon zip lock bag containing snacks and assorted items in “Travel Size”  such as; chemical hand-warmer packets, winter gloves, lip balm, wet wipes, tissues, soap, toothbrush & toothpaste kits, travel size first aid kit, combs, shampoo, deodorant, shave cream, disposable shavers, granola bars, crackers, candy, cookies, pudding… the list is endless.

Once collected and sorted they are placed in a bags.  We ask that all items donated be Travel Size in order for everything to fit in a zip lock bag.   The “We Care Bags” will be handed out to the homeless as our teams travel throughout the city.  A special collection box will be set up at the front of the church to accept donations.
