Our Guests and You make up the Heart of Lazarus House!
During this COVID-19 Crisis we have seen a steady rise in the need for our services – sometimes in the realm of 20% weekly increases over a few weeks in a row. We see new faces every single day and the faces of people who have never had to rely on soup kitchen meals or a food pantry before. We anticipate this will only increase as our Guests continue to face furloughs and lay-offs, childcare struggles, and sickness. And as our economy begins to re-open, unskilled jobs will be more difficult to find because over-qualified people will likely be filling them. We are measuring the effect of this pandemic on our Guests, not in days or weeks, but likely months and possibly years.
When you purchase sweatshirts, you are supporting the work of Lazarus House for our Guests, and spreading the mission each time you wear your sweatshirt.
you could be providing much needed formula to one of our tiniest Guests for a whole week.
you could be providing nutritious Soup Kitchen meals to a single mom and two kids for a week.
you could be supporting the deep weekly sanitizing we have had to add to our protocols to keep our doors open and our staff serving safely while providing for our Guests.
