We would love to have your participation in one of three ways. We cook for SPY's homeless youth on the Westside once a month on the 2nd Wednesday 6:30-8:30pm, and serve the meal the next day (Thursday) at 4:30pm. All are welcome to help us with donations, shopping, cooking and/or serving. If you would like to participate and are not on the monthly email list, you can contact Mindy Staley at email@example.com.
You can provide financial support for this program by making out your check to St. Augustine church, with "SPY" on the memo/subject line.
You can donate winter clothing/supplies that are gently used or new: sweaters, coats, blankets, sleeping bags, knitted hats, gloves, scarves, unused or new socks and underwear.
