Sack lunches are packed on the first Sunday of each month and distributed Monday-Friday from St. Andrew’s House to anyone who rings the bell and asks. The recently formed Boulevard Alliance of Ministry determined that several churches in our area are providing sack lunches, mainly to the same persons and overlapping each other’s ministries.
In an effort to be better stewards AND better serve the many needs of our neighbors, the St. Andrew’s Sack Lunch Committee has agreed to collaborate with other area churches in this effort. Heights Christian Church (HCC), who has also been providing lunches at their door, will now bring their lunches to St. Andrew’s for distribution.
HCC was also providing a small number of hygiene packets. They are now asking us to help with this effort by collecting travel-size hygiene items, which they will put together and distribute. These items can be found at WalMart, Target, Walgreen’s and the Dollar Store. Each item costs about $1.00. They can also be found in hotel rooms as you travel. If each person who can would bring one item a month, this would make a significant impact on the health and well-being of our neighbors living on the street. Your donations may be placed in the container in the Oak Table Room.
