What we're about

UPDATE:

Rerugale schedule planned to resume soon.

UPDATE:

I am going through a strenuous point in my life and will need some time off to recover. I need to take at least one week off as I am near burned out. Unfortunately, there is no consistent core to the group who are still in town, presently, so the weekly event has to take a timeout as well. If you'd like to share your time and energy to help the less fortunate in our neighborhoods consider volunteering with one of the amazing group below. With love, -Sergey.

--------------------------------

We are a group of friends trying to share love and care with the less fortunate. At the moment we are focused on food giveaways for the homeless or anyone hungry which we do once a week on Mondays. We get together around 6 PM, make sandwiches for about an hour. We then take the foods to an impoverished area near International St and 82 (near Walgreens; few blocks south of Hegenberger Rd). We travel up and down the street, giving away sandwiches, bananas, brownies, water, and anything else we may have. We strive to be friendly, respectful, unassuming, helpful and caring with everyone we meet. We strive to be organized and careful as we travel this area. We are usually done in with the giveaways in about an hour. Optional but encouraged is then to regroup to share our experiences and suggestions with each other.
There is no bureaucracy, no fund, no membership and no requirements to show up. We welcome people of all faiths and beliefs. Any food you may choose to bring goes directly to people in the streets. Foods that are easily packaged and distributed are best but please don't bring foods associated with strong negative effects on health (sodas, high fructose corn syrup, etc.) or anything you wouldn't eat yourself. Donations of bread, peanut butter, jelly/jam, cheeses, meats, sandwich bags, food handling gloves, bananas, apples, water, brownies, cookies always work.
