Bagged Lunches for People who are Homeless

Temple Beth El’s Social Action Committee, in partnership with San Pedro United Methodist Church and Pastor Lisa Williams, are tasked with creating about 50 bagged lunches each Saturday for people in our community who are homeless.

A recent Saturday morning, Susan Burke Brooks, our Social Justice committee chair, and Jenay Rouimi prayed with their feet by making and delivering 50 bagged lunches. Thank you to everyone who made donations and all those who offered to help. This is truly God’s work.

Pastor Lisa Williams of San Pedro United Methodist Church, one of the leaders of Family Promise and champion for the homeless in San Pedro, put out a call to action to help some of our most vulnerable people in the community.

TBE has set-up a fund so that you can help us donate towards this wonderful project. Your monetary donations will specifically aid in the production of bagged lunches and getting them delivered every Saturday.

There are many other ongoing projects that the Social Action Committee is continuing to work on. If you would like to be added as a volunteer to help with projects, please email Susan Brooks and she will contact you with volunteer opportunities. Thank you.
