“Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.” Luke:3-11
Each month volunteers plan a menu, purchase food, and prepare and serve dinner for about 40 people residing at Lincoln Park Community Services on the first Thursday of the month. Food is prepared in the church kitchen on Thursday afternoons.
Additionally, volunteers gather in groups of 4-6 to transport the meals and serve the residents on Thursday evenings. Volunteers are encouraged to eat with the guests if time allows. After serving the meal, volunteers assist with clean-up.
This is a great service project for groups of 4-6 people.
LPCS is a comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness, providing interim housing, meals, and a targeted array of services to over 300 people each year.. The Interim Housing Program houses up to 35 guests each night year-round.
In addition to meals and safe living space, the Interim Housing Program provides storage space, showers, and laundry facilities for guests. The average length of stay is seven weeks, although there is no time limit providing guests make progress toward their goals.
