Locally

The Gap

Wednesdays and Fridays, 7am-10am, Logan House (Nov 1 – April 30)

20160408_082422Each morning most of the local shelters require their residents to vacate their facilities. During the winter months many of these residents are cold and hungry and have nowhere to go. The Gap Program helps to address this “gap” by providing a warm place to go, a hot breakfast, and friendly faces.

We are happy to thank the local businesses for their generous donations.
