On Sunday, March 6, the Key Club from Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School volunteered to help Reality and Truth Ministry at One Church Mission. Students packed sack breakfasts and hygiene kits which were given to the homeless while at dinner at the mission later that evening. Pictured are MCPS students Logan Stevens, Megan Stembridge, Lisa Hong, Aubrey Lenn, Jonathan Green, and Marissa Dogan. Ladonna Brendle of One Church Mission expressed the need for sack breakfasts, currently there is no service in Montgomery for those that are homeless to get something to eat for breakfast.
Reality and Truth Ministry feeds approximately 120 people each day as well as helping many people find housing and employment. Mrs. Brendle explained that the minisrty has outgrown their current location. They have aquired a larger facilityon Montgomery Street to continue the work they have been doing for eight years; however, it is in need of some renovation before it can be opened to serve the needy. Specificlly, the most immediate need is installing plumbing. Mrs. Brendle is seeking licensed plumbers interested in helping One Church Mission fit the building at 506 Montgomery Street in downtown Montgomery with new plumbing for a kitchen and shower stalls. Those interested in assisting are welcome to contact Ladonna Brendle at 354-6142. The goal is to continue helping the homeless with food and hygiene needs well into the future.
