Mai is starting a ministry outreach of providing and serving food at Austin Street Shelter in Dallas. The kickoff will be January 5th and we will continue serving throughout the year.

Journey and friends will serve dinner at Austin Street Shelter on January 5th and we need your help with serving!

Danny and David have been asked to organize and budget the January 5th outreach efforts which will include a spaghetti dinner, a side salad, cookie and bottled water.

We only need volunteers to help serve at the shelter and to help raise funds however, several folks have already asked about the details so here they are...

The total cost (excluding cookies as we hope to have folks do some baking) will be just under $530. We will feed 420 so that works out to around $1.25 per person. We went to Sam's and got an exact price and quantity on every item we need so this estimate should be very close.

We have a close friend that owns Ph Dallas in Oak Cliff. It's a new sports bar and restaurant that somewhat mirrors his restaurant in Fort Worth called Pour House Fort Worth. He has agreed to let us use his kitchen. With that in mind, cooking the meal will be very easy considering we will have to only boil the pasta and warm the spaghetti sauce. The cooked food will be placed in large disposable aluminum warming pans covered with foil as the shelter will keep any leftovers. The salad will be purchased pre-washed and ready to serve and the salad dressing will come in large one-gallon containers, also ready to serve.

The food will easily stay hot during the 10 minute ride over to the shelter and it will be placed in the food warmer they have onsite until its ready to be served which is where you come in!

Once the food arrives we plan to have three serving lines setup. There will be 9 volunteer positions for each serving lines: Plate, Spaghetti, Sauce, Salad, Salad Dressing, Roll, Cookie, Napkin/Fork and a runner.

With all that said, we need volunteers and donations to help with the outreach.

If you are interested in giving a tax deductible contribution via Lovers Lane United Methodist Church, please write a check out to LLUMC and write "Austin Street Shelter" in the memo. The check will need to be mailed c/o Mai Le at LLUMC, 9200 Inwood Road, Dallas, Texas 75220. 100% of the donation will go toward the expense of this ministry and each donor will receive a statement for tax purposes.
