We as a church went down to New York City for a weekend to distribute blankets, clothing, and also to feed the homeless a Thanksgiving meal. This occurred the weekend of Nov. 10th.
Leaving here on a Friday afternoon, Pastor and a group of ten other people traveled down together to NYC, got into the rooms (provided by the New York School of Urban Ministry or NYSUM), enjoyed a dinner together, and then went out to distribute warm blankets and clothing to the homeless on a chilly November night. Saturday, we distributed Thanksgiving meals throughout the day helping to show care and love to about 5,000 homeless people in need. On Sunday, we went and enjoyed a service at Brooklyn Tabernacle and then headed home.
Thank you to all who signed up and came. We had a marvelous time reaching a community in need and will hopefully be doing it again.
More info on our trip will be available soon.
