Couple's Nuptials a Hiatus From Life on the Streets (washingtonpost.com)

This is an interesting story about how the people of Georgetown's Grace Episcopal Church are helping two D.C. homeless people celebrate their wedding in style!

"Hello from Ethiopia" - E-mail from a former volunteer

The following is an e-mail I got today from CR English, our former "Week 1 Coordinator" who is now volunteering for a living with the Peace Corps in Ethiopia. It's so nice to hear from old friends!

----------

Hey Phil-

Just wanted to send a quick hello and thank you again for the spoon/fork/knife gift before i left. I use it everyday (actually its the only utensil i own right now. . . ) and think of Sunday Supper friends. Hope the weather is starting to warm up for you guys.

take care,

c.r.

James never thought he would be homeless. Read the personal history of a dear Sunday Suppers friend in our archive.

Sunday Supper - December 14, 2008

Hiccups are part of the job. A miscommunication sent us scrambling to serve our Sunday Suppers out of our cars when a planning glitch resulted in a late arrival of the van. Then, a couple of days later, I got a call that the winter clothing had arrived, but was delivered to the wrong location - Aldersgate church in Alexandria instead of our current storage space at the National City Christian Church in DC. Nothing that can't be handled with a few extra trips and a smile...

What did make our friends smile tonight were the handwarmers we distributed. We'll get pictures of them up soon. They stay warm for 10 hours and will come in handy on cold winter nights. Thanks to Charles for organizing this!

NOTE: Check out the Archive section for a new Sunday Supper profile on one of our key volunteers!

Sunday Supper - Dec. 7, 2008

It's nights like tonight that really show you how tough life can be on the streets. We were lucky enough to be able to go home at the end of our 2 1/2 hours, but many of the people we shared food with tonight will be sleeping in a shelter or under a stack of blankets in an alley tonight. The compassion that is at the heart of our work is not lost on our friends - often they mention how much it means to them that we are out every week, no matter how cold, rainy or snowy. Thanks to everyone who volunteered tonight! Have a look at some pictures taken by Jan Hanus on our Pictures page!
