Outreach Dinner (Laguna Niguel)

"Hands of Grace" is a collaboration by some groups/churches in Laguna Niguel to provide a weekly dinner on Wednesday nights.  Some of the guests may include families in need or homeless individuals.

 

This newspaper article elaborates further - www.ocregister.com/articles/homeless[masked]-faith-hands.html



The coordinator, Barbara, says, "Our main focus is to not just serve dinner, but to sit and eat and be in conversation with our guests.  We serve about 12 – 15 people each week and different churches in the area take turns hosting.  Volunteers cook, set up and clean up.  Anyone is welcome and there is no religious agenda to our homeless guests either.  We do join hands and say grace prior to the meal, but the purpose is to host a family type meal and a listening ear."

 

If interested, contact the coordinator, Barbara, to confirm if they need additional volunteers, and also when to arrive.  Her contact info will appear (in the question) when you RSVP.

They also welcome donations of clothing, breakfast bags, and toiletry items for the homeless.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
