“Share the Warmth”

We Need Your Help!

Most of our costs are covered by generous donations of food and supplies.   There are, however, a few costs associated with putting on an event of this size.

The following are supplies that have not been donated and we need funds to purchase:

Disposable Kitchen Supplies  $300
plastic garbage bags, sterno warming cans, plastic knives, forks & spoons, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, serving trays, etc.

Tent, Table & Chair Rental  $1,000
We rent 40 tables and almost 300 chairs for the event.  An outside tent keeps the homeless from the elements until we are ready to serve dinner.

Miscellaneous supplies: $500
volunteer t-shirts, name badges, signs, etc.


Donations are tax deductible and can be made out to:
