Ways to Care For the Homeless This Winter

Dec 16, 2016

St. Mark’s is involved in several community outreach efforts to provide food, friendship, warmth, and comfort to those who are living on the streets or in our city’s shelters. Learn more about the most urgent needs and consider lending a hand in one or more of these activities.

Soup Kitchen Sandwich Making

Join a team that makes the sandwiches for the Sunday Suppers and Salvation Army Grate Patrol programs! From 4 – 4:45 p.m.  in Baxter Hall, on many Sunday afternoons, volunteers assemble and pack 200 sandwiches, assembly-line style. Find out when the next SKSM day is coming up and join us! Contact LIsa Ramish or Jack Richards for up to the minute details on current needs.

Sunday Suppers

Casserole makers (recipe and pan provided!) and outdoor servers are needed. Contact Lisa Ramish and find them on Facebook, to learn more about this exciting DC street ministry!  

St. Mark’s Shelter Ministry

St. Mark’s works closely with Capitol Hill Group Ministry to provide care and support to neighborhood families in transition. Some services are extended to those who are living on the streets and especially at risk for hypothermia during extreme winter weather. Others are families currently living in shelters. Learn more about how to get involved.

Homeless Assistance Response Team (HART)

Another program of Capitol Hill Group Ministry, St. Mark’s members have the opportunity to receive training and show up to find and assist neighbors that live on the streets and are at high-risk during extreme weather. Learn more.
