P6070023As we set up on Sabbath, June 7, for the clothing drive at Ridgecrest Elementary School, I wondered if our supplies would be enough for the families that were coming.  I watched in anticipation as our volunteers folded and organized the women's clothes, the men's clothes, baby clothes, shoes, toys, toiletries, bread, food, etc.

tn Homeless Outreach wide tOn January 26, we are inviting our church family to take part in an outreach event at CCNV Shelter in DC to serve the homeless.  We will serve a meal as well as give away clothes.  If you're interested in helping, please complete our volunteer form
 
How can you help?  We are asking members to contribute the following: 12 oz boxes of Special K (Original), boxes of uncooked elbow macaroni, whole corn kernels (canned or frozen), cases of bottled water, and clothes.  We are asking particularly for warm clothes such as socks, hats, gloves and coats.  Containers for these items will be placed in the Fellowship Hall by Sabbath, January 5.  The deadline for food and clothes donations is January 19.
 
We will also need volunteers to help us set-up, serve, assist with clothes giveaway, mingle with our guests, breakdown and clean up.  We will also need volunteers to assist with the sorting and boxing of clothes prior to our outreach event. 
 
This outreach will take place after the 11:00 a.m. service.  CCNV is located at 425 2nd St. NW.  Weather permitting, we will set up tables on the sidewalk in front of the building.  If it should rain or snow, we will set up inside the building. We are asking members to carpool.  Directions will be provided. 
 
Once we finish serving and ministering to our guests, we'll have a warm meal for all of our volunteers.
 
We are looking forward to this outreach and hope to see see many of you there.  You can reach Jenny Laquinte ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Vonric Bradford ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you have questions.  If you will be volunteering, we would appreciate it if you would complete our volunteer form.  Completing the form will help us make sure that we have enough food for you if you will be helping us.

Clothing Drive MetroWebFor years, Metropolitan has run a food distribution program - every other Wednesday, needy families are served by Myrtle Nora and her Community Services team.  Other members of our church have run and done their own personal community outreach as well.  The Adventurers collect and distribute blankets every year to homeless shelters.  We continue this tradition of service on August 19 when we host our second voters registration drive of the year and hold a clothing give-away for the community.
