AUSTIN STREET CENTER

Wednesday, May 29, 2019


, TX 

Wednesday, May 29 is the date of our next visit to the Austin Street Center on Hickory St. in downtown Dallas. For those of you who are new to our congregation and wonder what this ministry is, perhaps this will help you understand. If a month has 5 Wednesdays in it (about 4 times a year) we at Transformation make and take food down to feed the homeless clients, usually 400 + each time. We meet in the parish hall of the church about 3:00 in the afternoon. It is simple fare such as sandwiches, meats and breads purchased by donations; boiled eggs you can bring to the church with the shells still on; cupcakes/cookies which you bake at home; and then we also purchase dill pickle slices, potato chips, juice, and fruit plus milk which is donated by Tom
Thumb. So you can see that we need volunteers to manage all of this, especially those who like to bake cupcake and cookies, and boil eggs. We also need donations to help purchase all of this, especially if you don’t have the time to bake or boil but want to participate. If you would like to help, you can make your check out to TAC with a note it is for ASC and give it to us so that you get credit on your Giving Statement. Or just hand your cash donations, large or small, to Sharon Parker or Susan Maupin. We appreciate all help. Then about 5:15, we load up our cars and head to Austin Street. Drivers and servers are always needed to assist. Especially drivers, as some of us do not like to drive at night. We start serving about 6:00 and are generally finished by 7 or so and go home. If you have never been to a shelter to help serve, you will find that it is a joy to meet and feed the clients there. Talk to Sue Griffin, Susan Maupin, Larry Maupin or Sharon Parker for more info.
