Thank you, St. Mark’s, for signing up to provide dinner for 15 people each night in August as we welcome our unhoused neighbors here as part of the Hotel de Zink program. It’s a gift to be given an opportunity to provide dinner and shelter for our unhoused neighbors, and so many St. Mark’s parishioners have felt the blessing of this ministry over the years. It is suggested that at least two people work together on a meal. Costco is a great resource! We try to avoid high sugar foods like soda and ice cream. A dinner consists of a main dish, vegetable or salad, fruit, and milk. You can email Susan Dansker with any questions or concerns. With your help, it will be a very successful month!
St. Mark’s has been participating in the Hotel de Zink shelter program, taking turns with other area churches, for over forty years. The program, named after Police Chief Howard A. Zink, an early supporter of the project, is part of Life Moves. They provide a paid staff member to open the doors at 7:00 pm and lock up at 7:00 am. Our guests are screened and must help with daily cleanup of the Parish Hall, the kitchen and bathroom. Click here to learn more about Hotel de Zink.
The first week of the August is well covered! Please sign up for the rest of the month at our Meal Train.
