Starting in the year 2000, Our Daily Bread has sought to offer more than just a place for those in need to eat or sleep. They help their guests to procure housing, IDs, transportation, food stamps, and Social Security; hygiene services including showers, hygiene items, clothing, and laundry vouchers; and health services which have included medical screenings and assistance acquiring health insurance and/or prescriptions. According to their Mission Statement, Our Daily Bread “feeds, shelters, and cares for the homeless and at-risk in our community while maintaining the dignity of our guests and offering opportunities for a new start.”
First Presbyterian Church has asked Denton Presbyterian to participate in a collection of items for Our Daily Bread. Please click on this link to see a list of items FPC and DPC are collecting. If you wish to learn more about Our Daily Bread, you can visit their website here.
