Every Saturday St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in downtown Long Beach opens its facilities to those in need for showers and supplies, and on 2nd and 4th Saturdays for meals. We collect donations of clothing and supplies at UUCLB for this program, and volunteers are also welcome.
From Gerry M. Evans: We need summer clothes, shorts, shirts, underclothes and individual shower supplies. I noticed on days when the clients get lunch at 11:30, with only coffee before, they are a bit grouchy so we are collecting granola or biscuit bars to give out while they wait. The donation bin is in the office under the mail boxes.
I want to thank everyone who contributes to St Luke’s, I see the same people monthly and they are grateful for a shower and food. The kindness of the congregation helps them feel valued.
