New Year’s Cheer

Originally written for www.ElevationOutreach.com

Elevation Outreach kicked off the New Year in style celebrating with our homeless neighbors at Urban Ministry Center on New Year’s Day.

From playing bingo to preparing and serving a traditional New Year’s Day meal to collecting prayer request cards, it was a day full of New Year cheer for everyone involved.

More than 30 Elevation volunteers, including a large group of eStudents from the University campus, gave their time, energy and compassion to make the start of 2013 special for the 360 neighbors on hand at UMC.

After a hearty lunch that included chicken, ham, collard greens, black-eyed peas, mac and cheese, sweet potatoes and cornbread, many of the neighbors filled our prayer board with special requests for the new year.

Urban Ministry Center serves as a point of entry to services offered by a network of agencies that work closely to provide necessary opportunities for the homeless population.

Special thank you to Jon and Angie NoblezadaRose Rhodes and Brian Baute for investing in our community with the University eStudents, and to Tess Phillis and friends for their assistance at UMC during the holiday season.
