Essentials: Food and Shelter for All
Coordinators: Sue Sawyers, firstname.lastname@example.org and Marsha Dawson, email@example.com
The team meets the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.; location TBA.
Purpose: To ensure adequate food and shelter in the Fox Valley and beyond; to work to address obstacles which stand in the way of people being able to meet these needs for themselves.
Activities: Continuing to engage Fellowship members and friends in providing meals and other necessities to those experiencing homelessness in the community through participation in the fall CROP hunger walk, spring hygiene drive, Bread for the World letter writing campaign, and the E2F (Empty to Full) meal pan collection. We serve meals at Homeless Connections and the Warming Shelter, as well as offering overnight hospitality at the Warming Shelter.
New in 2017: We will be taking part in the 2 interfaith builds with Habitat for Humanity. The first begins at the end of March with completion in June. The second build will occur late summer/early fall and will have volunteer openings for Fellowship members and friends.
