Cooking for Deborah’s Place
Deborah’s Place is a home and shelter for women located on north Sedgwick near North Avenue. One of the major goals at Deborah’s Place is to give their residents the skills, direction, and confidence necessary to leave the shelter as employed, productive women who are able to obtain and manage their own housing once again.
The volunteer crew at St. Chrysostom’s gathers in the kitchen on the Thursday before the third Friday of the month to prepare a meal to feed approximately 50 people. That meal is transferred from the upstairs refrigerator and delivered to Deborah’s Place by volunteers on the next day. Shopping, cooking, and delivery personnel are needed. If you can peel a potato, chop an onion, boil an egg, brown ground beef, add bacon bits and cheese to a container of salad, or wash dishes, then you’ll be welcomed to join in this outreach ministry. Call the church office for current contact information.
