It's just what we do.
Larry Under The Bridge is a food and encouragement ministry to the homeless in the Bay View area. Bagged dinners are delivered to strategic locations near campsites on Tuesday and Friday evenings every week.
Each dinner consists of:
A piece of fruit
Cookies or other desert item
In the summer months juice boxes, Gatorade, and extra waters are given out. Bug spray, camouflaged tarps, and sleeping bags are some of the other items handed out when available.
In the winter months gloves, hats, and long underwear were also supplied to the campers who do not participate in Divine Intervention Prayer Vigil/Warming Room. Donated toiletries, socks, underwear, toilet paper are handed out year-round.
Begun in June of 2012, during a particularly hot summer, Larry Under The Bridge served an average of 15 campers per week. In recent years we have served as many as 50 campers weekly. During COVID, we've consistently distributed 15 lunches on each delivery day. The numbers can fluctuate but we try to be prepared to meet the needs at hand!
We are changing the world, one person at a time!
YOU are changing!
The homeless who we are coming to know as friends are changing!
Your Church and our Churches…members and ministry are changing!
