OUTREACH PROJECTS







MAKE AN IMPACT

Love is

a verb.

SLCA’s Community Outreach began in the fall of 2017.
Expanding our long tradition of seasonal gift-giving into year-round volunteering provides our members the opportunity to continuously put our principles into action. We engage and empower others in our community with real reach and impact. Over 70 volunteers participate in Hunger Relief and Homeless Relief projects with our partner organizations.






THE GIFT OF GIVING

How it feels to be

a part of Outreach


I went to this morning’s Street-to-Home Outreach. It was a great experience for me and a well-run and organized and effective program that moves homeless directly to housing (not to a shelter) if they want the help.

I plan to go monthly. I recommend this for anyone else at SLCA looking to work directly with homeless in a successful program.

I’m so happy to let SLCA know we collected 108 coats, plus any others that may be brought in tomorrow!!! Please thank everyone; we couldn’t have done it without their help!! I over-exceeded my goal of 100! I’m beside myself by the generosity of our SLCA community!

– Febe Leiva


We organized dozens of pallets of breads, recycled dozens of cardboard boxes, sorted clothes and stocked the pantry shelves with fresh produce, fruit, nonperishables and fresh meat. [I’m] looking forward  to our return next month.
