Through the Huntington Interfaith Homeless Initiative local houses of worship have opened their doors and provided shelter, a warm dinner, breakfast and a bag lunch for the homeless in our area. CLC has been part of the Lutheran Respite Center at Gloria Dei church which hosts this initiative every Tuesday evening between Thanksgiving and the end of March. Our congregation members assemble lunches including fruit, home-made cookies, sandwiches and water bottles for 38 homeless men who shelter at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Huntington Station during the winter months.
Today we will be assembling breakfast bags for the residents. We will carpool to Gloria Dei for 1/2 hr of setting up tables and chairs and sleeping bags and pillows.
