Our temporary shelter at Lakewood United Church of Christ in St. Petersburg

Hello, Friends and Supporters, and the curious.

I am writting to you this time about helping with our temporary shelter at Lakewood United Church of Christ in St. Petersburg. Currently, we have about 30 homeless individuals residing at this shelter.

We are currently funding this venture through generous donations from people and organizations like yourself.

To run this properly we need about $1300 per week. THis would include vehicle maintaince and gas (our minivan is old and needs some work), Food (when we can't get it donated), supplies, 2 security guards, and support staff (case management), as well as miscellanous items.

We are running short about $600 per week.

We are also in need of Food (canned meat or frozen Meat), blankets and sleeping bags, hygiene items, and work clothes/shoes.

If you can help in anyway, please send donations(checks or money orders) to the Refuge, 1818 29th Ave. North, ST. Petersburg, Florida 33713. Please note in memo that it is for shelter at Lakewood UCC.

If you have any questions, please call me at 727 278 1547 or email me at

One additional note, we could also use a lap top computer or 2, and a new or used minivan.
Thanks, Bruce
