A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Austin Street Center fund last year! Because of your generosity, ASC has been able to do more than simply provide one dinner each month for the 410 clients at ASC; we’ve also given them 50 new twin-size blankets, as well as presenting a check to them for $2,400 to fund one lunch a month for a year for the 50-100 lunchtime clients.
Stop by our table at the Ministry Fair next week and learn how you can get involved in helping “the least of these!” For information on how to get involved in this ministry, email Judy Loveday-Corbett.
About Austin Street
Since 1983, Austin Street Center has provided a free, safe overnight shelter for 350 – 400 homeless men and women each day. The Center provides food, clothing, medicines, education and pastoral care for residents. Transfiguration parishioners prepare and serve an evening meal for all residents once each month and provide and serve a complete Thanksgiving Dinner for residents each Thanksgiving Eve. The Parish also supports requests from the Center for special needs, such as clothing, food and personal care items throughout the year.
