Are you looking for avenues to help others during the holidays? We have many methods where families can help other families. We encourage businesses, organizations, parishes, and synagogues to contact us and let us know how many food boxes they can fill or toys they can provide for children 10 years old and under.
People often think of the holidays as the time of year people go hungry. However, hunger is a daily problem for many of our guests and we are frequently unable to keep our Emergency Food Pantry shelves adequately stocked.
We encourage volunteers to perform a Ministry of Presence: to sit with our guests, engage them in conversation, meet them on their terms, and share your experiences. That is the greatest gift one person can give to another: to be wholly present, to listen, to be attentive, to show care.
