Volunteer To Donate To One Of Our Feeding Programs:
We serve free hot meals once a week on Sundays 11 am, and a free hot breakfast Monday thru Friday, from 8 am to 10 am. If you would like to come and serve at one of these meals, donate food and supplies please contact us. We are always in need of people to come serve. For our breakfast program, we are always in need of donations of milk, orange juice, sausage, coffee, creamer, sausage gravy and biscuits. Please drop off food donations during our hours of operation.
We teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also provide a free children’s activity craft lesson every Sunday at 11am. In the summer months, and we offer a free kids breakfast with an arts and craft activity. We are always in need of Christian themed crafts that you can purchase from orientaltrading.com. You can call us to make arrangements to drop off these kind of donations.
Job And Transportation Program:
We have a job transportation program where we help clients get their identification so they are able to work. We also provide transportation to and from their jobs until they can afford their own transportation. We partner with NFI in New Concord, Ohio for these jobs. Most of our clients can not find employment elsewhere due to having a felony. These jobs give our clients hope. Some homeless persons were able to get off the streets through this program. We also give a free bagged lunch for them to take to their jobs, so they wont go hungry while they work. We offer the free lunches to them until they get their first paychecks. We can always use gas gift cards, and lunch bags with food. We also give out gas cards to those who have their own transportation to get to their jobs. If you would like to donate gas gift cards or lunch bags for this program, please let us know.
Furniture And Clothing Bank
We have a furniture and clothing bank. We provide free clothing, toiletries, and furniture when available. Clients fill out a needs form, and then we will see if we have it to give to them. We can always use volunteers to sort clothing. We take clothing and furniture donations as space is available to store it. If you can donate your time or items, please contact us.
We are currently working on our Building Renovation Project. When our building is completed, we will provide showers, and laundry facilities for homeless men and women. We will have day programs that will include job training and Bible studies. Our long term goal is to have an overnight shelter on the second floor of our building. If you can help with construction labor or building materials please contact Pastor Edward Swartz 740-487-0221.
