hotel de Zink is coming to St. Mark’s this august!

Hotel de Zink was started in 1987 by Jim Burklo as part of the Urban Ministry of Palo Alto. St. Mark’s is one of the twelve churches that provide dinner and accommodation to ~15 homeless adults every night for one month (10-20 guests, depending on the month). In August we will again provide this valuable and rewarding service. LifeMoves screens the guests and provides three rotating paid staff members to supervise and sleep with the guests in the parish hall. They will open the doors at 7:00pm and lock up at 7:00am.We need full parish participation to make this work. You can sign up to provide dinner on the Meal Train link below.  Dinner consists of a main dish, 2 side dishes and fruit for dessert. You may also use Grub Hub or your favorite restaurant. Food should be delivered between 7:00 -7:15 pm to the table that will be set up in the breezeway outside the kitchen. If you have questions you can email me, Susan Dansker at or Diane Guinta at, or Jenny Jordan at
