  • Thanks to ALL of our Church members who stepped up for the Homeless Week Participation last Saturday at St. Phillips Episcopal Church last week!! Thank you to all who cooked, brought Lasagna, Bread, Salads, Drinks and Deserts! For all who came to prepare, Serve and Clean up after the meals.

    Most of all THANK YOU to all who took time and sat down with someone or stood and chatted with someone just to say hello, to ask how they were and spent time just being with the people who were there because they are homeless…

    I took some deserts to the women who were housed in a separate area. The light had been turned off. I asked if I could turn it on and they said ok. I then talked to one of the women: I asked her what brought her here, so she said: “Well, because I’m Homeless” (duh Hildy…) Then she told me she had lived in an abusive home and fled that situation. That she had lived in her own apartment for 2 years, but had lost her job and that had caused her to end up living on the streets. too many of our neighbors can run into this type of situation I thought, and here but for the grace of God go I…

    The homeless folks asked me to tell you that they were really excited about the Lasagna (had not had any for that week) and the Lemon squares! They said to tell you: THANK YOU.
