CARITAS has moved into its new center and we have the opportunity to provide a bagged lunch for 30 ladies on February 19. Sign up to make 30 hearty sandwiches, provide packaged chips and snacks, fruit cups, and packaged cookies. We continue to support CARITAS with Kroger gift cards and other supplements to their shelter ministry.
Men's Hygiene Kits in April 2021
The Healing Place needs Men's Hygiene kits - these consist of a regular size bar of soap, disposable razor, shaving cream, men's deodorant, and travel sized shampoo, lotion, alcohol-free mouthwash, regular toothbrush and tooth paste. We need fifty of each item for kits to be delivered on April 9 and April 23.
Sign-up to help with 4th Saturday lunches! All prep can be done from home and dropped off at the church the day before!
Underground Kitchen started cookin in May
We accepted the invitation to participate in the Underground Kitchen's efforts to provide healthy meals for those in need due to the virus shutdown and first responder health care workers. Our kitchen is a source of nourishment and hope on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays thanks to Chef Lori and the UGK.
Tutoring and support of RPS
Suzanne Long is a longtime adult literacy volunteer with the Read Center. In keeping with safe distancing she has changed her weekly tutoring session from in-person to on the phone. Read more about Suzanne and the Read Center.
Suzanne also accepted the call from Richmond City Schools and "rides the bus" each week to help deliver food to RPS families. She commented that the bus driver knows all the kids on the route.
