Attention to all Homeless Shelter Volunteers – Providing dinners is easier than in the past, as you only need to drop off the dinner (usu. meat and veggie casserole) at 5:30 at the Kent Island United Methodist Church.  Thanks to Mary Julie, as she has volunteered for the next dinner opportunity for our Parish on Sunday February 14th. Please contact me if you are interested or want more information before committing. Thank you very much!
