Our “Two Lunch Tuesday” program is really doing well!! We have 28 schools participating throughout the city; with new schools being added all the time. The kids (and teachers & parents) are really supporting this cause!!
These lunches go to homeless on the street, halfway houses, US veteran houses, The Las Vegas Rescue Mission, The Salvation Army, Shade Tree, Catholic Charities & Help USA.
This program was started in 2009 by one school giving us sandwiches, and has grown to the 28 schools we have now. As of this date, we have collected 20,227 lunches this school year. To read more about this program, please click here.
As we stated in our Thank You this month, Bill Wadley and Impact Companies has taken on Broken Chains as their charity for 2018. That includes cooking for our Wednesday Night Outreach and holding several fundraisers during the year for the ministry.
Impact’s first cookout was on January 31st. They served pizza, fruit, and desserts and our homeless population were really pleased with their selection. It was a real treat for them!! And there was left-over pizza for all to take with them.
Impact was the company that Pastor Cody worked for when he first got off the streets. They have a program called “Second Chance” that helps homeless, felons and those in recovery get back on their feet. Bill Mulligan, Pastor Cody’s immediate supervisor at Impact, was on hand and gave a wonderful talk about the program and Pastor Cody’s successful progress thru the program.
ElleMae Ehin joined us at the park on January 31st to cut hair for the homeless. We had a long line waiting to get haircuts. Everyone was so excited, as the homeless can rarely afford a professional haircut. ElleMae will be coming to the park to cut hair on the last Wednesday of each month. Thank you ElleMae – you are truly a gem!!!
