Every Monday, iCare volunteers prepare a meal for those who might otherwise go without. In fact, a typical Monday sees 25ish volunteers serving 200 meals. At this same event, the Dallas Hope Charities food pantry donates up to 100 bags of groceries, utilizing the nonperishable food donations brought to Cathedral of Hope on the last Sunday of each month. iCare volunteers serve on Mondays from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 pm. Bilingual speakers (English / Spanish) are always needed. See more
Our goal is to let people living on the streets know they are not forgotten by graciously offering “A Taste of Hope”. The meal we serve is similar to a meal we would serve guests in our home. However, our program is not about “feeding the homeless.” It is about connecting with the people we serve, even for just a few moments. To reassure them that people do care about them.
On Pack the Pantry Sunday (the last Sunday of each month), volunteers collect, sort and shelve the food brought to Cathedral of Hope. Through these donations, we are able to consistently provide more than 300 bags of food each month to people who might otherwise go hungry. Additionally, if you shop at Kroger or Tom Thumb and participate in their community rewards programs that name Cathedral of Hope as beneficiary, we receive 1% of sales each quarter. See more
Blessing Bags are gallon-size Ziploc® bags that contain snacks, travel-size toiletries, socks, a bottle of water, grooming supplies, and other items that people who live on the street find useful. Bags are kept in your car, so when you encounter a person who is experiencing homelessness, you can offer the bag to them. Shopping lists are distributed on the first Wednesday of each month. Items on the list are purchased during the week and brought back the second Wednesday of the month, and those who are interested are invited to take a few bags with them to keep on hand in their cars. Shopping list: any individually wrapped snacks | breakfast bars | cereal bars | granola bars | combs | hand lotion | lip balm | peanut butter and cheese crackers | protein bars | soap | toothbrush and toothpaste | Vienna sausage in pop-top can | applesauce | coffee | face towel | hand sanitizer | mints | plastic utensils | single packaged nuts and trail mix | sunscreen | foil tuna packs (not requiring a can opener) | bottled water | gallon-size Ziploc® bags.
