Methodist church plans three meals to raise money for homeless shelter

November 15, 1996

Glen Burnie United Methodist Church will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner today to raise money to help establish a North County shelter for homeless men.

For the past four winters, about 20 churches have taken turns providing 25 men with food and shelter for a week at a time. Volunteers said about 200 homeless have been served.

Members of North Arundel Area Ministries began working last summer to establish a permanent shelter in the Glen Burnie area. They estimate the shelter will be completed in two years.

Donations for breakfast, from 6: 30 a.m. to 8 a.m., are $4 for adults and $2 for children ages 6 to 12.

Lunch, from 11: 30 a.m. to 2 p.m., is $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 6 to 12.

Dinner, from 4: 30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m., is $7 for adults and $3 for children ages 6 to 12.

Children age 5 and younger eat all meals free.
