Redeemer Serves

Please join Redeemer in a month (or more) of service! Thank you to all the volunteers who delivered lunches to 48 Carlsbad Firefighters. We received a nice thank you letter from the Carlsbad Fire Chief.

For those who work or have kids with online school & still want to help- next Friday, Oct. 9th we will be delivering dinners to 18 Solutions for Change family members & 16 staff at two locations – at either 4:30pm or 5:15pm. Solutions for Change is a program that equips families with the skills, knowledge & resources to permanently solve family homelessness.

  • Donate Money towards the boxed dinners
  • Volunteer to pick up food from Panini Kabob Grill & deliver to Solutions for Change.

Volunteers can all wear your green Redeemer Serves T-shirts (contact me if you need one!)

Month of Service – Redeemer Serves

Let’s use our gifts, talents, time and resources to give back. We’d like to give thanks to our community by serving lunch to essential workers, service workers and others who deserve our thanks.

Complete THIS FORM to let us know of an organization, group, community member or other who you’d like Redeemer to serve lunch to – and if you’d like to help further. Watch for specific dates and service opportunities. Contact Terra for more information!

Solutions for Change – Goodie Bags & Farmboxes

A supply of Goodie bags from Redeemer by the Sea were delivered to Solutions for Change to be distributed.
 
Also – As you may or may not know, Solutions for Change has a farm! Solutions Farms provides work development training for the formerly homeless families in their program and funds the transformation of these families.
 
Pre-Covid, they sold their lettuce to local restaurants. Unfortunately, with business shut downs, they lost these accounts, and a valuable source of funding for their program. They needed to get creative, so they quickly pivoted, partnering with local fruit and vegetable farmers to come out with their own CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Box – Solutions FarmBox!
 
Solutions will deliver a FarmBox with organic fruits and vegetables straight to your front door. The box includes our 100% organic spring mix with local farm fresh veggies and fruit such as avocados, apples, oranges, tomatoes, zucchinis, spinach, strawberries etc.
 
To continue to serve those in need, they offer this CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box for purchase on their website, and 100% of the proceeds go towards solving family homeless at Solutions for Change. If you would like to purchase a box click here.


North County Food Bank Donation

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the North County Food Bank matching opportunity. We had a total of $1,825 donated, and along with the $1,500 from Redeemer there was a total of $3,325 sent to the Food Bank – that should provide 16,625 meals! Way to go!


Care Bag Give Away!

Thanks to those that came to pick up “Care Bags” at Redeemer this past week – We hope it was a nice treat!
