St Luke’s Shower and Breakfast Program for the Homeless

We support St. Luke’s shower program for men and women without homes, in Long Beach. Every other month, on Saturday mornings from around 7:30 – 9:30 a.m., we provide a nourishing breakfast of hard-boiled eggs (prepared the night before by our youth group!), warm soup, crackers, muffins, fruit, hot coffee and chocolate. The St. Luke’s Breakfast and Shower Ministry always loves new volunteers, including families with children of middle-school age or older.

Come along and be a part of it – and still be back home in time for coffee! You might be helping with:

  • Setting up and maintaining coffee and hot chocolate table
  • Setting up main food table
  • Serving food
  • Preparing soup in the kitchen
  • Folding clothes
  • Helping as needed

You can be a part of this ministry by donating food, supplies, your time and/or money.  We are flexible with those who need to leave early or to come later.

Watch our bulletins and enewsletters, or check our calendar for upcoming dates.

The Blue Bin Donations

We collect and donate clothes – socks, sturdy shoes, bags, underwear (can be used, but clean and no holes), t-shirts, pants, blankets, jackets, and hats. Please place your donations in the Blue Bin in the lower Parking lot. If you can bag and label your donation as intended for St Luke’s that would be extremely helpful. Please do not donate kids’ items, or formal clothes etc. Thank you!

Willing helpers empty and sort the contents of the Blue Bin!

Undie Sunday!

Each Sunday preceding our visits to St. Luke’s we hold ‘Undie Sunday’! Donate, and bring to church, a package of underwear to help the homeless at St. Luke’s.  For women, gently used bras are always appreciated. Both men and women need briefs, socks, and undershirts or camisoles. You can leave donations in a basket outside the church at either service, or drop them off in the office.
