Homeless and happy: ‘Don’t feel sorry for me,’ Lisa says

Lisa and Richard met and receive services at Downtown Daily Bread. Keep the homeless in your prayers this holiday season.

She's lived in a tent community in Harrisburg for two years and says she'd rather be with her warm-hearted partner than in a warm shelter bed.

You may be thinking coats, hats and gloves, but most organizations have plenty of cold weather gear - and plenty of food as well. What all need above all is financial assistance in order to run shelters and programs.

George, your warm smile and caring nature were much appreciated at breakfast on Tuesday morning. May all be well with you and your family!

This morning I volunteered with the Downtown Daily Bread (DDB), a shelter and resource center which has served over 25,000 meals since the current pandemic began. I met dedicated workers and volunteers, and we served breakfast to those in need.

Special thanks to Susan and Tikerah for being so welcoming, and prayers for those who have had the misfortune of falling on hard times.

If you have it in your heart, schedule, or budget, please do all you can to support this amazing organization serving the most vulnerable among us: https://pinestreet.org/ministries/downtown-daily-bread/

For two weeks, Jordan has stood on the corner of Front Street and Forster with his sign, greeting people as they make their daily commute. His simple act of kindness is helping thousands start the day off right, and we hope it inspires you to do something similar. “You’re so important,” you have value, and you can make a difference.

In recognition of her efforts to serve the food insecure residents of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, DDB’s Kitchen Manager, Corrie Lingenfelter, has been selected as a 2020 Hunger Hero by Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Acknowledging that the easy choice would’ve been to close down, they praised the perseverance of Corrie and her small team.

Today's mixed vegetables with roast beef, macaroni and ice tea was very good Two thumbs up and posted on my news feed.
This morning when I woke up around 3am. I took two Nyquill tablets to go back to sleep. I woke up at 7:30am anyway. Forgot I had a coffee in the fridge and came out to DDB. Eight Hbg. City Police officers were there and four patrol cars at Pine St. Church and I started my video camera. None of the people hanging around had any breakfast trays. Nor was there a table out. The other day a DDB employee was giving to go bags on the side . Today he was not there. The side doors were locked. But the main door was unlocked. I was a little confused. The police presence had me wondering if breakfast was cancelled. Anyhow several of us went downstairs to the green door and found it locked. So I called the DDB kitchen and someone answered. We were told breakfast was over. My phone was on speaker. For 15 minutes we were waiting for somebody to come upstairs as the doors on the side were locked and the door leading to the shower's was also locked. Police still were hanging around the church. After being told we had to leave the building. I rang the doorbell of the church for assistance. A gentlemen came outside, and entertained my grievance. I had grown used to breakfast never being served until 8:30am at the tables. Last Monday ( Columbus day ) and Wednesday 10/14/2020. Breakfast was not served at all. However, one day after that I was invited to come in by way of the side door and pick up a breakfast or go in and sit down and eat. So this morning. I had no idea what was going on. Especially with police officers present. None the less I told my advocate that the breakfast during the last month never came out to the tables before 8:30am. The police were still there and my advocate placed two phone calls then went to the kitchen and brought the cook up. Who asked if I still wanted something to eat and that she would get it. Which she did. Which resolved the issue. I have no idea what happened before I got to DDB which brought the police. None of the officers were wearing protective masks either. Which was highly noticable. But I was told by the cook today that the facility will be open for breakfast regularly at 8am to 9am. Three times last week I came for a breakfast. Forgetting one of those times that on Sunday's you don't serve because of Market Square Presbeterian's breakfast program. I was confused from the moment I arrived and even after I left. But found out that I can now come earlier in the morning If I'd like to to enjoy a healthy meal to start my day. So I apologized for the misunderstanding. I just wish the other's who went downstairs with me had not left. It's not unusual for people to get lost when police keep hanging around as if they are fishing. Keep up the good work and thank you.
I like Governor Tom Wolf. He should come back and get a taste of what the new DDB cook is brewing. I think her name is Cory or something like that. I was there today and enjoyed a succulent meal that was mouth watering. A kind of beefish tomatoe sauce delight !😊🎹😊.
Happy Birthday Debbie!
I don't know about you. But today's lunch time meal at the DDB was Deeeeelicious! Hot baked bisquits surrounded by gourmet hamburger with all the trimmings except for the grease. It was amazing to see there was no grease all over the food. Especially with burgers and I tore mine up ! Succulent green beans fresh off the farm with mandarin oranges and an assortment of pastrys. Topped off with a fruit punch to wash it all down. DDB-----YOU ROCK !
they are good people and they try to help you if u are homeless they let you take showers and give u locker to put ur stuff in and lets u get mail there and serve u lunch.they are a big help they helped me alot
The DDB had some very enthusiastic volunteer's today helping to serve the noon time meal. Members of the Paxton Presbyterian and Camp Hill Methodist Church. Got right in there . Filling up tray after tray of one of the more delicious meals I've come to enjoy. As the homeless and poverty stricken sank their teeth into the cook Kobie's gourmet chili. This mouth watering treat had green peppers, stewed tomatoes an rice and beans on the side along with other nutritional treats. Hip Hip Hooray !!! We had Chili Today !!!😋
