Each Wednesday from 5-6pm, Open Arms opens it doors to anyone in need. Bags of food, backpacks, meals, and toiletries are handed out to homeless, single, and families. Nearly 100 bags of food are distributed each week. During the winter months, we providing blankets, coats, hats & gloves, and socks to anyone who needs them. It's amazing to see God at work in the lives of both the volunteers and those who come to the door. Prayers are lifted up, encouragement and hugs are given, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, lives are changing.
We have received a wonderful amount of support from churches, groups, and individuals through the donation of food, money, and other essential items. God's people have truly come together to serve Him. Westminster Presbyterian has been a loyal, on-going supporter.
Items that are always needed:
Non-perishable food (especially canned meat type items for homeless - we provide them with a small can opener, so they do not need to be pop-tops)
Toiletry items (small sized for homeless, larger for families)
Backpacks, new or gently used
Ziploc bags -from sandwich sized up to gallon
Contact the church if you have items to donate, please visit us on Wednesdays if you are in need. All you need to bring is ID.
If you are generous with the hungry
and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out,
Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness,
your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.
