A Message To Our Volunteers
To Our Wonderful Volunteers:
Thank you so much for your warm wishes, prayers and support that we have received from you during this difficult time. It is so hard not seeing each and every one of you! The weeks and workload without you are so much harder and nowhere near as much fun!
We truly are “flying by the seat of our pants” each day, but it is working out. We served 190 at the end of the month and today the first Monday of April we served 169! That’s an end of the month number. But, serving boxed lunches outside and handing bags of goodies to each person is very smooth and all are appreciating it, although they can’t wait to come back down and be with our St. Peter’s family again.
Please know you are all in our prayers for a healthy time away. Don’t get sick, we will need you back ASAP! Please keep us in your prayers. We are so grateful for all the good work you do and for your spiritual presence with us as we overcome this devastating time in our country.
We Miss You All!!
Patty and the Staff

St. Peter's Kitchen Welcomes REACH Emergency Housing to Our Campus
St. Peter's Kitchen is proud and privileged to announce our newest collaborative effort with The Coptic Church and REACH Emergency Housing
REACH Advocacy provides transitional housing for area residents in need right in the former rectory of St. Peter's campus. We support REACH's motto and mission statement of "Promoting Housing as a Human Right" and we look forward to serving our community as a part of this “hub” for fostering independence for our disenfranchised neighbors.
