Davis Community Meals sincerely thanks the individuals and groups who provided food for the 13 clients and volunteers of the Cold Weather Shelter every evening while it was open this past season for four and a half months.
Members of the following faith groups provided sandwiches, hot meals, or pizza, often supplemented with beverages, desserts, fruit, or other treats, every night during the season: Congregation Bet Haverim, Islamic Center of Davis, Orthodox Christian Fellowship, St. James Catholic Church, St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, University Covenant Church, United Methodist Church, Christ Church of Davis, and the Davis Newman Center.
Three other community groups that provided food were Davis Odd Fellows, Rebekah Lodge, and the National Charity League. Several groups of neighbors also provided food.
We would also like to acknowledge the representatives who coordinated the schedules for each group: Colleen Schneider, Hamza El-Nakhal, Shereen Vera, Alexander Stameroff, Gayle Murray, Laurie Lovely, Eric Dirksen, Shoshana Zatz, Lea Rosenberg, Julia Menard-Warwick, Yvonne Rodriguez, Jan Poole, Cathy Rowan, Susan Padgett, Sheryl Cambron, and Diana Wiggins.
Finally, we want the community to know that Woodstock’s Pizza generously gave a 50% discount on all food and drinks delivered to the Cold Weather Shelter throughout the entire season.
The above participants and the Davis community can be proud of this multi-faith and community effort to meet a vital need for food and shelter during our cold and wet winter months. On behalf of Davis Community Meals and the guests who stayed at the shelter, thank you very much!
