Covenant will again helped to provide meals for a week to the homeless clients of the Hotel de Zink at First Presbyterian Church. Hotel De Zink is Palo Alto’s only homeless shelter, where for the past 22years, twelve midpeninsula churches have taken turns providing food and shelter for homeless men and women. This year we helped give regular staffers a summer break and provided evening meals for about 12-18 people during the week of July 23 – July 29.

While we’re used to having an abundance of food every Sunday after worship, you’ll be amazed at the expressions of thanks from the Hotel de Zink clients who depend on that program for food and shelter.
