The hungry and homeless need our assistance
We are currently working with Lighthouse/South Oakland Shelter to assist the homeless the week of May 2 to 8. This will be in place of our hosting South Oakland Shelter clients in our building due to the shelter’s COVID policies. We will be making, packaging, and delivering delicious meals for homeless families currently being sheltered.
We are fortunate to have our in-house caterer, James Kaiser, heading up the meal planning and cooking, but we need your help.
This year we are doing the grocery shopping for you! Instead of bringing items to the church, we will use our cash donations to purchase all of the needed items. Our team has shopped for the best prices on everything we need and they are ready to get the grocery carts filled. We estimate this project will cost about $3,000 to feed up to 100 people during the week. When donating, please indicate “SOS” on your in-person offering envelop. When giving online record your giving amount in the SOS/Lighthouse category.
Service opportunities are: Dessert bakers, meal delivery and meal prep. Fresh meals will be delivered each day to the temporary shelter location. You can choose your own dates/times from the list. Click HERE to sign up to help or call the church office.
