What we do
Our Unity Porchlighters are great team members! We serve and prepare two meals every other month for the Grace Mens' Shelter. Our church tithes to the Porchlight team to pay for these meals. A good portion of our meals are purchased through Second Harvest Food Bank.
This is not a huge commitment of time, only several hours every other month for our members. We always have a good time doing this work and we invite all who would like to join us helping the homeless population of Dane County enjoy a good meal and feel a little better about themselves, knowing that there are people who truly care about them.
We also do a yearly Christmas Project and prepare small bags with personal care items, socks, stocking hats, candy, dental hygiene items, lip balms, etc. We do this a week before Christmas. Items can be donated to the bin in the front foyer starting November first.
