Our new space is still under construction, so we're seeking help with providing lunch to our members.
Here's what's going on & how you can help!
I would like to update all of you about what is going on with Daybreak, and also put out a call for help.
On Wednesday, March 1, Daybreak officially reopened at Dubbs Memorial Community Center (457 W. Allen Street, Allentown). Unfortunately, our new Daybreak space remains under construction. It is expected to be completed in 2 to 3 weeks (although the kitchen renovations may take longer). In the meantime, we are making the best of the situation, and meeting in Flag Hall on the first floor. Since we do not have a kitchen, we have been serving a cold continental breakfast, and then a cold lunch that we prepare at our Soup Kitchen.
Last week, we were blessed by a man named Jim who just happened to win a catered lunch for 20 from Chipotle that he donated to us. Like the "bread and the fishes," it turned out to be plenty of food! The members enjoyed the huge spread of steak, chicken, pork, beans, and more. The timing could NOT have been better, as we are without kitchen facilities.
Jim's generosity gave me the idea to ask if anyone else would be willing to donate a lunch to Daybreak. We thought about things like a "doggy pack" from Yocco’s because we have big slow-cookers we could use to heat that type of food. Sandwiches and salads would also be a great help. I know that some of you have certified kitchens at your churches, so if you like, we could accept any food that you prepare there.
Please note that we do not have a stove to heat things up, but we could use our slow-cookers. I am open to any of your ideas or donations.
You all have always helped make Daybreak possible and just WONDERFUL!
Thank you for all of your support! I look forward to when we can all be together—and cook together—once again!
