Provide for the underserved
A hopeful and nourished community in Body, Soul, and Spirit
We provide food, clothing, tools for learning, advocacy, and life solutions, for our neighbors in need, in an environment of safety.
The Coronavirus doesn’t stop us from providing for our neighbors in need…….
Grand Central Station’s volunteers continue its work, feeding the hungry, by preparing bags to be picked up outside while maintaining social distancing!
This week, Grand Central Station moved from serving daily hot breakfast and lunches to a grab-and-go model, filling more than 100 bags with sandwiches, fruit, cookies, water bottles and snacks. Protocol from the World Health Organization was sent out to all volunteers, and those over 60 were asked to stay home. Because of this, we have lost many of our volunteers. We are in need of low-risk volunteers during this crisis to prepare sandwiches and bag the lunches! Each day, the demand for these lunches increases. Yes, we are working at full throttle!
We have procedures in place to continuously sanitize and clean; volunteers are prompted to wash their hands before during and after their shift, and wear gloves. Social distancing is required inside with volunteers and outside where food bags are handed out for all.
As this country’s crisis of homelessness collides with the crisis of the coronavirus, we need our community now more than ever to help! We are reaching out and asking for your monetary donations at this time for additional needs and continued operational expenses. Grand Central Station’s operations are solely funded by local donations, in-kind donations, foundations and grants. We do not receive any state or federal funding. Even in ideal circumstances, meeting the basic needs of our underserved is a daunting challenge, and we rely on our community as best we can. We are humbly grateful and appreciative of any support you can provide!
