For over two years our Bridge Ministry has served a meal each month to about 200 people in downtown Knoxville who are experiencing homelessness. We partner with the Knights of Columbus and have volunteers from several parishes and other friends who help out. Typically we have between 15-25 volunteers who serve nearly 500 hot dogs with all the fixings, chips, cookies and ice cream to our homeless guests. We set up at the Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) courtyard on the 4th Saturday morning of the month. The average cost of food and supplies each month is about $300.
We welcome your donation to help us continue this important ministry, where we not only feed our guests, but also show them that they are loved and important to us. If you wish to donate, you can do so using this PayPal link. At this time your donation is not tax deductible, but we do pray for all those who generously support us. If you are unable to donate financially, we would love to have you join us as a volunteer to help us serve our guests or keep us in your prayers.
You can follow us on our Facebook page, where all of the upcoming dates are listed. I also encourage you to subscribe to our monthly newsletter to receive information via email. You can subscribe here.
May God bless you for your generosity and your prayers.
