OFF SITE OPPORTUNITIES

Homeless Shelter Dinner
Prepare and deliver a meal for approximately 25 Emergency Lodge shelter residents on a pre-determined date. The food does not need to be fancy, just hearty to serve a large number. Think comfort foods. The meal should be delivered in disposable containers and does not need to be individually packaged. This a great opportunity for groups, individuals, and families looking to give back to the most vulnerable in our community. No need to supply any paper goods, serving utensils, condiments or beverages as we have them in our kitchen. 

Homeless Shelter Lunch Bags
The Emergency Lodge shelter residents receive three meals a day. Breakfast and dinner are served on site and lunch is a pre-packaged bag.  Volunteers are encouraged to collect items, prepare and package bags of lunch off site to deliver to the shelter. Please package all refrigerated items separately. A kind note of encouragement and love in each bagged lunch are appreciated too. 

Welcome Home Baskets
Gather supplies to create "Welcome Home" baskets that are given to homeless shelter residents as they move into their very own apartment or home. Oftentimes shelter residents have to start from scratch so these baskets should include starter items such as a welcome mat, towels, laundry and kitchen supplies, and cleaning products (no alcohol based supplies). A note of encouragement or a devotional would be a great addition, as they settle in their new home.
