Sharing hope and a hot Easter Dinner during the COVID-19 crisis

by NightShift

Holiday celebration dinners have become an important part of what we do throughout the year in the NightShift neighbourhood. Hot meals shared with friends and family take on special meaning for all of us during the holidays. During our special 2020 Easter Dinner, we served ham dinner and all the fixings, chocolate treats and a Bible to 130 grateful friends, struggling with homelessness, poverty, addiction and mental illness.


The COVID-19 crisis has changed how we do outreach. With care and concern for our friends in need, and our volunteers, NightShift has modified its procedures to respect physical distancing and keep everyone safe. We served our meal from the back outreach door, reminding all of our guests to try to keep a six-foot distance from one another.


It breaks our hearts not share hugs, high fives and serve our holiday meal inside at the table. But as each individual Easter meal was served, we felt the miracle of human connection and God’s incredible saving grace over all of us in the NightShift neighbourhood. Please join us in praying for our friends in need on the streets.
