Last Saturday FTHP welcomed a new sponsor (and his friends): Rob Shipper! Everyone had a great time and we really enjoyed having Rob and his group join us serve our friends on the street. Please come back soon Rob, we loved having you and your friends be a part of our team!
At our sister location on Whitehall Ave., located at the ReStart 3:20 property, we had a glorious morning! Linda (one of our favorite volunteer friends who has since moved to Greenville, SC) came down extra early Saturday morning to help prep and serve and to hand out the remaining socks she’d received as a donation from Bombas.
Whitehall is slightly different from Edgewood in that we serve prepared meals (handmade at our warehouse) to a more personal crowd. Since we have fewer friends to serve and the meals are pre-made, this gives us more time to get know what is going on in their lives individually. Many times, we can direct them to services right inside ReStart 3:20. Of course, Bridgebuilders are also standing by to help link services to our friends.
Many thanks to Linda and Bombas for coming down to Atlanta for the day! You’re the best!
Our Bridgebuilders did a great job this weekend of dealing with some new issues that our street friends have been trying to manage on their own. In particular, our friend Keith got settled into a new residence due to the efforts of Bill S and Julie S. Many, many thanks to them and also thanks to Keith for stepping up and taking control of the issues that were keeping him out on the street.
It’s the Annual FTHP Kickoff Cookout, hosted by our friends at JE Dunn!
What a great day it was for Feeding the Homeless Project. At our Annual Kickoff Cookout, we recognize our volunteers and sponsors who’ve went the extra mile to serve our homeless and unsheltered friends in the previous year. It’s also a great opportunity to get together and share some delicious food catered by FTHP ‘Grill Master Emeritus’ Barry (and his wonderful mom) and to discuss our upcoming schedule with our returning and new sponsors.
It was a wonderful day for our volunteers, sponsors and supporters and we want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who makes each Saturday a success. God bless and keep you all.
Although we were rained on this weekend, we weren’t rained out! Here we are, set up and ready to go!
When it rains, Bridgebuilders work hard to find our friends and make sure they’re ok. Thanks BBs!
We had a rain delay last Saturday and we had to implement our Inclement Weather Protocol. Unfortunately, the IWP means our sponsor’s date will have to be rescheduled. However, neither rain, nor sleet nor snow can stop FTHP from serving our friends and we carried on despite the inclement weather. 🙂
This Saturday, our dear friends from JE Dunn joined us on the street for a wonderful morning in service. The weather and fellowship were incredible. The continued commitment from JE Dunn humbles us and makes our mission lighter and more joyous. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
