Volunteers from All Saints have been supporting the Men’s Shelter at The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and Central Presbyterian Church for over 30 years. Given the Pandemic, there is NO overnight at the Shelter this year. It has become a ‘street ministry’ with volunteers handing out the dinners in to-go boxes and lunches in paper bags in the parking lot of Immaculate Conception.
How can you help?
Lunch preparers are needed at the gym (at 4:30pm on the scheduled Sundays for one hour) and cooks are still needed to make the dinners (detailed directions will be provided after sign up). The dates include Dec 5, Dec 19, Jan 2, Jan 16, Jan 30, Feb 13, Feb 27, Mar 13.
The Shelter is also in need of items for the men including new socks, knit hats, hand warmers, coats (gently used or new – XL or XXL preferred), winter gloves (large or XL), a box of masks, packs of tissues or hand sanitizer. If you would like to donate any items, please bring them to the All Saints Gym on one of the Sunday evenings at 5pm for those attending to bring to the Shelter.
You can also make a financial donation to offset the costs for the cooks by sending a suggested donation of $20 by Venmo to @Elaine-Dolt or by mail to Elaine Dolt 7895 Landowne Dr, Sandy Springs, GA 30350. Please include ‘Mens Shelter’ on the subject line of the check.
