1/20/2010 – Shelter Spotlight

January 20, 2010


Hi Folks! Welcome to day 20 of Shelter Spotlight and Operation:365. Today I’m spotlighting a small shelter located in Baltimore, MD. Pauls Place is one of the oldest and currently the 2nd largest soup kitchen in Baltimore city. Located in the heart of Baltimore Pauls Place helps in so many ways and I’d like the good folks who read my blog everyday to stop in and say Hi, Need Any Help Today?

 

In the summer of 1982, two volunteers from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Glyndon – Helen Martien and Reverend Philip Roulette – approached Reverend Edward Stube of St. Paul the Apostle Church on Washington Boulevard with their vision for a soup kitchen in one of the poorest communities in Baltimore City and the nation, Washington Village/Pigtown. On September 27, 1982, Paul’s Place began serving soup and sandwiches twice a week. Word spread quickly about this new soup kitchen, and within the first two years, volunteer cooks from all faiths began preparing casseroles off-site to serve at Paul’s Place. The Hot Lunch program soon expanded to seven days a week. Also during its first two years, Paul’s Place began offering a values-based Saturday morning program and summer camp for children in the community“. – From Their Website – http://www.paulsplaceoutreach.org
