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 Sunday evenings every week.
Each dinner consists of:
2 pieces 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 12 people per week with a peak of 20 people for a short time. During the winter months the average was 6 people each week. Generally people will contact Larry and let him know whether or not they will need a lunch on Sunday. The numbers can fluctuate a lot but we try to be prepared regardless.

Your Church and our Churches….members and ministry are changing!
