Donations from the public are always welcome.

OUR SHELTER

 

The emergency shelter can house up to 11 single men temporarily, to allow our clients to seek employment, housing, social services so as to better their lives.

 

When the county declares a state of emergency such as "extreme weather condition" (code blue), the shelter provides bedding space in the dining room and church sanctuary. Many winter days, we allow our clients to remain at the shelter even though "an emergency" has not been called by the county.

 

Our volunteers, during emergencies, prepare breakfast and dinner for the shelter guests, in addition to community lunch, four days a week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COMMUNITY MEALS

 

 

Our shelter volunteers provide "family style" meals, without question to the community of Burlington County,on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and

Sunday.

 

Community meals are served: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

 

On Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas the shelter serves holiday meals as well as on Memorial Day and on the Fourth of July we sponsor a BBQ picnic open to the community of Burlington County.

 

Many local organizations such as Medford Leas, Colonial Catering, St. Martin's and St. Andrew's Church, faithfully donate, (for which we are ever grateful), as well as private citizens of the county, which goes a long way helping the shelter provide the meal services we are able to offer.
