Hello St. Thomas’s and St. Nicholas families! I have some good news about our homeless friends. SOME of them have found jobs! Some have found housing, some are back on the street and a few are still at the Red Roof Inn. There is a need at the Empowerment Center for “Go Bags” (a meal in a bag – shelf-stable entree, fruit cup, drink, crackers, cookies or bars and a plastic spoon/fork with a napkin). There is a box outside the office at St. Thomas’s, labeled “Go Bags”. I will deliver all donations to the Newark Empowerment Center. There is another box outside the office at St. Thomas’s labeled “HOPE Dining Room”. It is for our Hope Dining Room lunch on September 21, 2020. I would LOVE to hear from you, if you would like to be on our September kitchen team! Here is the Sign Up Genius for Hope Dining Room contributions: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A4DACA72AAAFF2-hope1
10 – 11:45 a.m. – cook and assemble meals
11- 12 noon – do dishes
11:45 – 1:00 p.m. – serve (hand out “Grab and Go” meals, outside, at Kingswood Methodist Church, Brookside)
Let me know at which shift you would like to help, as we can only have 5 masked-people in the kitchen at one time.
Questions or to volunteer? Call or write to me via the Church Office at StThomassOffice@googlegroups.com or (302) 368-4644.
Bless you all for your care of our homeless friends,
