2017 Heat Respite at Grace Lutheran Church

Weeks 4-5

At Grace, we are In The City For Good and Heat Respite is doing that on a daily basis! For the first two weeks in July, we had 1,657 entries for our program, including almost 650 total volunteer hours. We celebrated the 4th of July with a special holiday lunch prepared by St. Mary’s Basilica. We have had some other great volunteer groups, donating their time, meals, water, and finically supporting our program. We could not do this program without all of your help so thank you very much!

I would like to thank the following persons for volunteering their time and hard work almost every day of the past two weeks:

Marlene Haller

Frank Soto

Sven Lenkewitz

Lori Thompson

Stephanie A.

Tarvies Mayweather

We also several groups either donate food for lunches as well as volunteer their time with us. We are so grateful of their time and talents!

  • First UCC

  • Peace Lutheran Church

  • New Journey Lutheran Church

The program is using up to 3 to 4 cases of water every two hours, and I would like to thank some very large water donors recently. They include:

  • Mountain View Lutheran Church, Phoenix

  • New Covenant Lutheran Church, Scottsdale

  • Life in Christ Lutheran Church, Peoria

  • Love of Christ Lutheran Church, Mesa

Also, thank you to St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Phoenix, and Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Mesa, for donating snack items several times over the past several weeks.
