Old First Men's Winter Shelter Dinners
Dear partners in ministry,
Thank you for all you have done to help the homeless and poor through the Old First Outreach Ministries. The vulnerable people we care for are those Jesus told his followers to help. We could not do this ministry without you.
Starting in November, we will contiune to host the Bethesda Shelter in the social hall, but with modifications because of Covid-19. We are making more space available in order to house more individuals, but there will be a few less residents to allow for social distancing. This shelter season we are hosting around 27 men.
Second, also because of Covid-19, there will be no cooking on site. We realize this is a big change, but we still need your help! Inividuals/groups are still encouraged to make food off site, and then drop it off outside of the social hall where a Bethesda Staff member will be there to greet you. Drop off time is 6:45 pm the day of! If this time does not work with your schedule, please reach out to me and I'm sure we can arrange something. We will need food for the shelter 3-4 nights per week.
If individuals/groups are interested in preparing food you can sign up here or email our outreach coordinator Jess Selingo at [email protected] where she can sign you up for a slot as well. If you have any questions, please do not hesisiate to reach out!
