Room in the Inn (RITI) provides seasonal winter shelter for homeless men, with congregations in the Lexington area of all faiths welcoming guests into
their churches during the coldest months of the year. MSPC has participated in this means of showing God’s love for over 15 years, with many church members helping to provide a warm and comfortable place to sleep in Blevins House, a delicious evening meal, a hot breakfast in the morning, and a sack lunch for the day.
This year, Maxwell Street will host men in the Blevins House on seven Tuesdays from November – March. We need folks who can drive the van to bring the men to Blevins House in the evening, shoppers to buy the food needed for breakfast and a sack lunch, those who can make the beds, those who will prepare the hot meal in the evening, and hosts who will welcome the men, eat dinner with them, spend the night at Blevins House, cook a hot breakfast in the morning, and send them out in the morning with a lunch for the day – and God’s blessing. Our biggest need currently is someone to coordinate our volunteers for the program.
If you would like to sign up to volunteer or coordinate the volunteers, please contact Mary (255-1074).
