A long-held tradition of service at Saint Paul, Grant Avenue Street Reach is a once-weekly offering for the homeless and needy in the city of Denver. Every Monday, volunteers gather bright and early in the basement and kitchen of Saint Paul to prepare food for hundreds—warm meals that sustain folks while they get their feet back on the ground, warm hugs that enliven their spirits, and materials goods like clothes and toiletries that allow them to live as safely and comfortably as possible.
What does all this take? Well, a lot of hands, for starters. Dozens of men, women, and kids work together during Grant Avenue Street Reach to handle food preparation and service, and clothing organization. A blessing to this outreach, Grant Avenue Street Reach also receives many food donations which volunteers process and prepare either for meal service during the day, or for those needing food to-go.
Please keep in mind that Grant Avenue Street Reach doesn’t know holidays—the kitchen run and the needs continues through Easter, Christmas; through winter and summer. If you’d like to give of your time and talent to help this wonderful ministry, please contact Doris Zesbaugh.
