The Water Ministry: Serving our neighbors

Plunge into the Water Ministry this Summer!

Thanks to your generous support, this year the Water Ministry will run through the hot summer months for the first time!

The regular season ends June 9, and we will re-open Mon., June 12 offering a simpler lunch (sandwich, fruit, dessert). Our research showed that people living on the street have a greater need for food (as other programs shut down), personal hygiene and respite from the heat in the summer.

We are delighted to be partnering with St. Dunstan’s and Redeemer Episcopal churches in Bethesda, who are contributing volunteers. Come explore serving in the Water Ministry: welcoming guests, facilitating showers and laundry use, preparing and serving lunch, or shopping for groceries once a week. Ongoing training is provided; a volunteer orientation will be held Tues., June 6 at 2 pm, in Rm 212.

Water Ministry will run June 12- Aug. 18, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:30 am-1:30 pm. Contact: Anne Murphy
