Fr. Jim's Log 9/4
Set up at Good Shepard around 10am and ended at 4pm
Received 100 meals around 2:20 we gave them all out by 3:20
Sunday we should be up to 200 meals for 1:00 and 200 dinners for 5:00
Gave out 110 cleaning buckets, all the rakes, brooms and shovels. 50 health/ personal care kits, 20 quilts, five kids and 10 adult Bibles, one bottle of bleach -all the trash bags (8 rolls)
People , Water, ice, diapers, gas , 3 compartment styrofoam clam shells rakes brooms, more cleaning supplies from( North American Lutheran Church)
We were able to prepare the 100 meals with two adults and two children. I would suggest looking for a minimum of four adults.
Staffing the cleaning supplies ~we started the morning with 6 that was a good number. By the days end we were down to 4 that was way to few since they were there all day. Shoot for no less than 8 either in two shifts or six at a time allowing 2 to take breaks each hour.
When we put people out next to the street with signs the amount of people stopping for cleaning materials increased 5x when it was just signs on the street we had 6 or 7 cars stop per hour.
We need more helping hand and clergy, especially Deacon and those called to be; a crisis of this magnitude across this much space needs the God’s table servant to go out and be the hands and feet of Jesus. To bring back the needs of the lost to be lifted up in prayer by God’s Holy people.
