The Outreach Center is Open

As the blog sometimes gets a bit long, here are the topics you'll find below:
  • The Outreach Center Update
  • Weekly Food Basket Request
  • Food Bags Needed
  • The August Street Outreach Numbers
The Outreach Center Update
The Outreach Center is now open every Saturday.  Thank you to the following outreach counselors for volunteering throughout the day on Saturday:  Jose Alvarez, Oz Diaz, Rob Donnelly, Kristina England, Ken Latham, and Ally Trull.

Weekly Food Basket Request
We've been looking at our food supply and thought it might be a good idea to have a basket of "healthy" food such as fruit, cheese, trail mix, etc.  Basic healthy food for the kids to eat at the center or take with them.

If anyone is interested in preparing a food basket for us, let us know.  You can sign up for one week, once a month, whatever you like.  Contact Oz Diaz, Director of the Outreach Center, at

Food Bags Needed!
We are now collecting food bags for distribution during street outreach.  A food bag contains the following items:
  • Juice Box/Water
  • Candy Bar
  •  Pudding/Fruit Cup (pop top)
  • Cup of ravioli, spaghetti, etc. (pop top)
  • Bumblebee Chicken or Tuna Salad with Crackers
  • Granola Bar
  • Napkin and plastic ware
Contact if you would like to donate food bags.  This can be a great project for students, youth groups, etc.

The August Street Outreach Numbers
So you are probably wondering how many kids we assist each month.  Here are the numbers from August:
  • 15 Regular Kids Assisted
  • 41 New Kids Assisted
  • 20 Kids Provided with Meals
This is the total amount of kids we saw in four weeks (one day outreach a week).
