 “With the assistance of the Sunrise Rotary Club and Toys for Tots, children’s toys, food, warm coats, scarves and gloves were distributed to the  people in the East Church Street neighborhood on Saturday, December19, 2009. In spite of cold temperatures and snow, many families  were lined up well before the announced 12 noon opening.  By the time all of the toys, food and clothing were distributed some  85 families, consisting of 145 adults and 185 children had received at least one toy per child as well as a food bag for each family.  For many of these families a spark of light and joy was kindled in an otherwise bleak Christmas“. – From http://www.christianshelter.org

“Last year the Light House was forced to turn away nearly 500 homeless people, 159 of whom were children, because we didn’t have enough room. This lack of care for our most fragile neighbors was unacceptable to hundreds of visionary Marylanders who had a dream of a more efficient way to solve the problem of homelessness in Anne Arundel County. Thanks to 4 years of hard work, dedicated planning, and generous support; we are now able to go public with our plans to build a larger and more efficient Light House! A Light House that can help 1,500 homeless people each year as they work to become housed and self-sufficient”. – http://www.annapolislighthouse.org/ 

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

We at Hatter & Beanz have thought of something interesting and, even though our idea may not be so unique it’s something for those who may be less fortunate or those that may have been hit hard by the economic downfall.  

So readers, as we give thanks for our families, our friends and the roofs over our heads we have built for you a list of soup kitchens and shelters and services in each of the 50 states. (Oh by the way, we personally checked each reference).

So here’s how this is going down, we’re going to sort this by state, and right now our goal is to list one or two organizations by per state for this year. At Christmas, we’ll add one or two more, per state.
