Through the assistance of many volunteers, supporters, contributions from the community, and operating space donated by the congregation at College Heights UMC, Warm Blessings was able to open on July 17, 2006. We served only 2 people on opening night, and on our 1st anniversary the Soup Kitchen served 87 individuals. During our first 6 months we served 1,542 meals, but today it is not unusual to serve over 1500 meals a month.
On December 09, 2009 the program served the first meal at the renovated site at 609 E. Dixie Hwy. in E-town. The move has allowed us to expand to serve a hot meal each weeknight and offer handicapped accessible showers and on a limited bases use of the washer and dryer. Food bags, hygiene items, blankets, sleeping bags, and other necessities are frequently distributed, and since September 2012 the program has delivered meals on Monday and Thursday to seniors who are shut in. Limited van pick-up is available within the Elizabethtown area for those without transportation.Type your paragraph here.
Many faces have made this a success.
