Every Saturday, St. Luke's continues to provide showers, clothes, and food for our unhoused neighbors. While county and city efforts have gotten some into temporary housing, many do not meet the requirements for the housing. And, many feeding programs have closed, which means many more people truly are hungry. To maintain the safety of volunteers and guests, we require everyone to wear masks (many thanks to all those who have donated masks), and we do informal health checks of all guests before they enter the campus. If you are healthy, under 65, and would like to join the Shower Team, please contact Gail Mutke. Due to the recent generosity of our church partners, community groups, and many individuals, we have been overwhelmed with donations beyond our storage capacity. The local LDS Church has been a tremendous source of men’s clothing, especially pants and outerwear, which has been needed during the winter. It is not our desire to continue to store items long term, so we are currently asking for a delay in donations for perhaps a month. If you have appropriate items and can store them for us until we can catch up, it would be appreciated. For the near future, we are requesting only: MENS boxer or boxer briefs, sizes medium & large, casual shoes size 11 and larger & WOMENS panties in all sizes (no larger than 11) yoga-type pants, casual shoes, sizes 7-10 We are still in need of blankets, backpacks, rolling suitcases. We currently have an oversupply of plastic grocery bags, and towels. Thank you for your generosity and support of the Shower Program. We will reach out when we can again open our donation center to a wider range of donations. Please contact Gail Mutke for any questions.

On April 24, 2021, the Shower Program hosted Covid-19 vaccinations for homeless and the community. The mobile clinic was provided by The Children's Clinic and will return on May 22 for the second dose. We were able to vaccinate approximately 80 people!
