RSVP to the Facebook Event Page

Single In Christ Class will serve and provide a dinner meal to the cancer patients at the Hope Lodge.  We will arrive
around 4:30 to prepare and set up.  Dinner will be served at 6 pm.  We have also set up this event through our Facebook group.  Please RSVP there as well.“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you
abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NIV

About Our Facility:

Getting the right care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. This can place an even bigger emotional and financial burden on
patients and caregivers during an already challenging time. The American Cancer Society is trying to make this difficult situation easier for
both cancer patients and their families through Hope Lodge.Hope Lodge not only provides patients with a place to stay, but it also offers a supportive and safe environment where patients can focus on wellness. On-site security is provided 24-hours a day Sundays through Thursdays .  A full crew of American Cancer Society staff and volunteers help create a relaxing and informative environment, providing around the clock "awake" service. In addition, Hope Lodge guests have access to the American Cancer Society’s nationally acclaimed National Cancer Information Center and Web site.  These services connect cancer patients and caregivers to information on cancer, local resources, support groups and patient service programs. The Hope Lodge in Lexington, Kentucky offers private rooms for the comfort of its guests and their caregivers. Fostering a home-like environment, the Hope Lodge is equipped with a community dining room, kitchen facility, library, and laundry facility. And, most importantly, the Hope Lodge offers encouragement and support from others going through the cancer journey.

In 2017: 150 Dinner Groups served 205 meals providing approximately 10,250 guests at our Hope Lodge in Lexington, KY a free and nourishing meal. We are so grateful for the sacrifice, love, and support each dinner group has shown to our guests! Our cup truly overflows!

Hosting a dinner is the most direct and effective way to impact our guests. It is a great relief to all our guests at our Hope Lodge when they do not have to worry about where a meal might be coming from. It eases the stress of cooking and provides a wonderful opportunity for fellowship amongst our guests.

Our building has 32 rooms and can house up to 64 guests. I encourage dinner groups to plan on cooking for 40 people. Please do not be discouraged if it is less. At times we do not have a full house or some of our guests do not wish to come down and eat.

All our dinners are served at 6pm unless a dinner group requests another time. Most groups come in around 5pm to prepare a meal. It is the responsibility of the dinner group to provide the food for the
meal. We have all the cooking tools you will need to prepare your meal. It is also alright to prepare a meal offsite and bring it in to serve. We encourage all dinner groups to eat with our guests and enjoy in the fellowship. We appreciate dinner groups staying and aiding in the clean-up process. All Evening Coordinators are trained to help you with any questions you might have the night of your service. When setting up a dinner we ask that you provide the following: 1. Date you wish to serve 2. Group Name 3. Address for a thank you card 4. Telephone number in case we need to reach out to you to confirm your meal date. We request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel a meal night. We understand that things arise, and are flexible. A days’ notice allows us to prepare our guests so they can make other plans.



Feeding the Homeless at the Catholic Action Center



Sat. 6/23/18 at 9:30 (until 12:30?) at the New ReStore at 817 Winchester Road, Lexington, KY

Please go ahead and create an account on their volunteer website? It will cut down on paper usage and paperwork that morning.

Here's the link:

For anyone who doesn't do this I have attached a copy of our paper waiver on our Facebook page.  Please print, fill out, sign, and bring with you.

Here's a glimpse of what happens here at the Restore:

The ReStore on Southland Drive is one of the 10 busiest in the nation (out of 600+!) and things are changing by the hour as donations pour in and purchases go out. That means things are very fluid around here! And that means that it’s not usually possible to predict in advance precisely what a volunteer group might be doing here.

Some regular activities include:

-assist customers in loading purchases into their vehicles

-greet donors and help them with their donations

-organize & clean up various sections of the store (tile, door section, sinks, cabinets, etc.)

-move items to create space for incoming donations

-purge old items from the Clearance section as directed

-paint recycling (dump donated paint into mixing vats to create and repackage new colors!)

Perhaps none of this sounds glorious but it is all vital to making the ReStore run smoothly and more profitably which in turn means more money to build Habitat houses!

As far as number of volunteers goes, we usually try to keep groups to 10 or 12 maximum but if some volunteers don't mind getting a tiny bit of paint on them and do some paint recycling, we may be able to push that number a little. Also, as of next Thursday 6/7 we will have a second ReStore here in Lexington at 817 Winchester Road. Splitting up into two groups would also be an option.

Please let me know of any questions that come to mind or of any way I can be of service!

Thanks & best,
