Like almost everything else, our support of the Interfaith Family Shelter is affected this year by the Coronavirus.  But the families there still need our help.  67 people are sheltering in place at the St. Vincent DePaul Annex ,  37 children and 30 adults.  Those families need to be fed.  First Christian church has been feeding the Interfaith Shelter families for 27 years, and we are committed to continuing this year, but with modifications.   The staff at the shelter will be accepting and serving the food and their crew will be doing the cleanup.  So our job this year will be easier……and harder. 

Our “normal” week this year is April 27- May 4, and we need your help.  Because of virus limitations, we cannot have a kitchen crew in the Annex kitchen.  Our goal is to have some of the food catered, “gather” some, and prepare the remaining meals in the Kozlowski and Kennedy kitchens.  What we need most this year is pre-packaged single-serving sized foods (individual boxes of cereal, breakfast bars, muffins, etc) or cash donations.  If you have questions, please call 541-554-0970 (Tom Kozlowski) or 541-463-7951 (Kennedys) or email mkennedy5@mindspring.com or tkozlow906@aol.com.  Thanks for your help in this important ministry.
