Serving our neighbors

Homeless shelter

Check out this kitchen crew from August. These folks cooked dinner for Home and Hope when our brothers and sisters at Trinity Presbyterian Church in San Carlos hosted this rotating family shelter. This week during the week between Christmas and New Years we have the opportunity to serve our community in this way again.

If you love cooking, eating, washing dishes, or just hanging out with your neighbors you can volunteer with Home and Hope. Each night volunteers are needed to provide a meal for 16 people, serve the meal and clean up afterwards, and hang out for games and fellowship.
